Critic reviews for Monsters

There's still some action to be had, but it's about as exciting as watching paint dry.

Just when things are going so well, something bad really happens. I love the King's optimism, but good luck never lasts. He's a great strategist, but they cannot underestimate the Saviors.

I love Gregory...I don't know what it is about him that always makes me smile.

I don't recall The Walking Dead ever being so direct and overt about asking whether compassion has a place in a world like this, if there's a value in showing mercy to those that would do you harm.

I'm glad that the attack on the Saviors that spanned three episodes has seemingly come to an end, and now we can focus on the aftermath and fallout.

We're not sure how long this All-Out War(TM) is scheduled to last, but if nothing else, it's entertaining enough to watch unfold.
