AMC's The Walking Dead returned last night for its midseason premiere, "Nebraska," and many critics and viewers seemed to have the same complaints and praise that they had for the first half of season two.
Complaints were long on The Walking Dead's "glacial," "lackluster" pace, and many felt that "once again, we were low on zombie fighting and high on talky talking." And the character's actions and motivation were questioned. (Yes, we're talking about you, pregnant Laurie and confused Glenn.)
However, critics also felt that the aftermath of the barn walker massacre embraced the "chaos, sadness and zombie killing" that much of the series boils down to. And it's hard to deny the power of a moment like Rick proving what a "badass" he is by blowing away the troublemakers in the bar "quick draw style." In the end, some felt the episode "is full of the human drama the show is really about."
But what did you think? Did "Nebraska" fix The Walking Dead's problems? Or did it even need fixing?
Weigh in with your thoughts on last night's season-two midseason premiere.
