The Walk­ing Dead Sea­son 7 (18)

West Lothian Courier - - The Ticket -

The apoc­a­lyp­tic opus’ sev­enth run wasn’t ev­ery­one’s cup of tea and it’s easy to see why.

After the grip­ping, ten­sion-stuffed vi­o­lent opener, the se­ries tails off in me­an­der­ing fash­ion, only re-find­ing its feet in the fi­nal cou­ple of episodes.

Jef­frey Dean Mor­gan’s Ne­gan is un­doubt­edly the show’s big­gest hu­man threat yet and though oc­ca­sion­ally veering off into pan­tomime vil­lainy, the 51-year-old is a riot in the role. Spe­cial men­tion to Austin Ame­lio (Dwight) too for his lay­ered turn.

Other favourites like Nor­man Ree­dus’ Daryl feel side­lined, though, and there’s no shak­ing off the feel­ing it’s all set­ting up big­ger, bet­ter and bolder things to come.
