    Its brisk pacing, big action, and focus on the camaraderie between the Alexandria, Hilltop, and Kingdom survivors makes for super entertaining television which makes you feel good without trivializing the drama. ... The episode offers more than popcorn-movie thrills and chills, however. Balancing out the mayhem is an understated, poignant father-son moment between Rick and Carl.

    Well-done, but then TWD is always well-done. What’s missing is the thrill of surprise, or the shock of surprise. “Mercy” at least offers a hint that one may be coming.

    The urge to expand the story beyond the constant flight from mindless flesh-munchers is understandable. But much of the dread, as well as emotional urgency, has gone out of the show in the process. ... The staging of the action in the season premiere, in which Rick, Maggie and XXX lead an attack on the Saviors compound, feels well below the show’s previous standard, like Michael Bay on a bad day.

I hope that it will arrange for the season 9. In any case I continue to remain faithful to this series! Expand

He is my favourite in the comic because he is menacing but very likeable at the same time. TV version? just annoying as **** How did they manage to completely ruin one of the greatest fiction villains ever created? Expand

    El resto de espisodios son realmente desastrozos, los primeros 4, que parece un episodio recortado en varios trozos, repletos de escenas de acción mal rodadas, con una coreografia pesima, y los ultimos de esta primera mitad en donde parece que buscan la emoción facil en el espectador y lo unico que lograron fue una terrible decepción y amargura.
