The Walking Dead: "Internment" (Season 4, Episode 5)

Well that was one gory, boring, exciting, confusing gross-out of a memorable episode, wasn’t it? Just when it had me going “Meh,” it lurched up like a walker itself and started shambling right and left in impressively gnarly fashion. The first half was pretty unmemorable, the second half memorable indeed. But it also included some things I don’t want to remember.


The Walking Dead: "Indifference" (Season 4, Episode 4)

We pick up where we left off last week. In order, we get some inspired set pieces that don’t actually involve gratuitous gore, some good dialogue, and a low key, downbeat ending that more or less works. Enough so that I’ll overlook for the moment what could be arbitrary angst of convenience. A good episode all things considered.


The Walking Dead: "Isolation" (Season 4, Episode 3)

This season’s new nemesis—the flu—continues in full force. And it yields a good episode, one that feels less hastily thrown together than last week’s opening gambit. Seekers of the gross get their money’s worth from another peak zombie moment, and the emoting is better paced.

Mood is quickly established. The opening shot is Glen digging a grave. After a little bits, we widen to see Maggie also digging graves. Pull back a little further and there’s four or five people digging. Got the picture?
