It was tough last night choose whether to follow the national team or The Walking Dead, in both cases I knew I suffered, in un modo o nell’altro. The choice for the AMC show won both to stay more calm because anything could happen, could never be worse than failure to qualify to the World Cup.
The first three minutes are enough to frame this episode as nearly identical to the previous two. Motivational speeches, gunshots at random, forced moments of reflection. It's a bit like press replays in three weeks. Seguo The Walking Dead da quando ha debuttato, I defended when was criticized in the second season, I proudly bought the action figure of Daryl and I'm sorry that things are so, but the negative parable seems to have no break and no end.
A video game, This is the episode 8×02 di The Walking Dead. A shooter where to arrive at the finding of a central object or to a destination, you have to shoot down whoever is equal in front of. Generally there you got a map or a compass that will allow you to figure out where you're going and you're able to recognize your potential mates. In this installment no. Indeed, It reinforces the suspicion that the series in General doesn't know where to get, circling around the same things.
The return of The Walking Dead marks the achievement of an important milestone for the show at AMC: the series won the episode number 100. Remember when you started looking at it 8 years ago? Had debuted on Halloween night, the first season had only 6 episodes and never imagined that we would arrive at an altitude 8 seasons. A destination that is undoubtedly pleasure, but that poses with greater force the question with which we left in April, how much longer can last?
The foundations of the earlier episodes were not encouraging, the promo for "The First Day of the Rest of Your Life" on the other hand was a hotbed of tension can turn up the hype. The result reached by the Season Finale is a compromise between these conflicting feelings because overall it is a nice episode, with twist, scary moments and emotion. But perhaps he's missing something; something that cannot be because there was its building or just because they somehow need pull ahead until next season.
"Something they need" in better times would have to be a mediocre episode, Today it becomes more than good. At least hot, because in hindsight there too we find the slowness and lack of tension that have accompanied us during this season after the premiere. In both storyline followed they do try to make us stay on your toes, Yet at any time the feeling is that everything will be alright, that although certain characters we seem to have now a short life, they pull up to the imminent Season Finale.
We left with "Not today" and we can easily repeat it this week – and in all probability with the life to come. Having made progress where it seemed impossible, The Walking Dead slows again with an episode where, Apart from the final minutes and a few words here and there, virtually nothing happens again. And besides, wouldn't even be possible considering the short timeframes covered and the fact that we're not looking 24.
Who would have thought that an episode devoted entirely to Morgan could turn out to be really interesting? The prejudice towards it was strong, even leaving aside the recent trends in the series, the bets on Morgan have become tired immediately after his return; instead, following a first part that was just fear boredom in spades, I am glad to have been disproved.
An old fashioned bet, who pays the price of overconfidence past experience, even by those same characters. Seasons ago, I would have probably lived differently, I even enjoyed the diversion used to make us reflect and moments from teen to Rick and Michonne. Today, in its seventh season and having a little filler episodes lead to frustration for meandering plot, the episode runs slowly and with raised eyebrows every five minutes.
