Well, that was pretty great. One of the best seasons of the entire show and I can honestly say I enjoyed every episode. It seems a change of showrunner can make all the difference - thanks Angela Kang. Rick's exit was really well done - I do understand the helicopter cop-out gripes - and it led to a well placed time-jump. The season constantly felt fresh and actually had consistent story-telling and a formidable villain in the Whisperers, namely Alpha.
I liked all the new characters and actually thought Henry was a lot better than Carl - Lydia and her identity crisis was very well handled and Morton was excellent throughout. The Calm Before was a necessary gut-punch, and produced one of the most shocking moments I've seen on TV for awhile - the score was incredible, too. The finale was also very beautifully done, and it was a change of pace to actually have snow incorporated. Can't believe I'm saying it...but here's to season 10!
I have every season of The Walking Dead on disc. Its a good show and I always enjoy going back and watching old episodes. Definitely worth the purchase if you are old school like me and like hard disc.
