    Rolling Stone "Grateful 'Dead': 10 Best 'Walking Dead' Episodes"

    Rolling Stone has always given the show a lot of in-depth and thoughtful coverage, so this article with what RS feels are the best 10 episodes in seasons 1-4 will likely stir some good discussion.





    "Last season, AMC's The Walking Dead drew over 12 million viewers an episode a huge audience for any show these days, but especially for one that each week sends its characters on a grim march toward certain death. Give credit to the show's writers, for making the gory saga of a zombie plague not just endurable, but meaningful. Following the lead of the Robert Kirkman, the creator of The Walking Dead comic (and one of the TV series' executive producers), the show traffics in both long, graphic-novel-sized arcs and the occasional short, stand-alone episode. That mixed approach has allowed the series to spend time exploring how its band of human survivors are struggling to rebuild a society as well as take an hour here or there just to scare the crap out people.

    These 10 standout Walking Dead episodes include some of the show's most chilling moments warning: dead children ahead but also represent what it does best, i.e. using ghastly carnage as the backdrop for intense character studies. These are the cream of the zombie-apocalyptic TV crop..".

    I agree with all but three: "Claimed" (YOU STEEL, YOU KEEL), "Live Bait" and "Walk With Me". I would replace them with "Too Far Gone", "Beside the Dying Fire" and "Guts" since it had so much Glenn awesomeness in it...

    Lots of great ones on that list. I would replace Claimed, and the two gov. episodes with ...Beside the Dying Fire, This Sorrowful Life, and Too Far Gone.

    The fact that Live Bait is on the list and Too Far Gone isn't is a joke.

    Walk With Me? Really? I mean, sure, it was an introduction to Woodbury, but man, every time I watch it I feel like it's not going to end! Even 'Still' is better than this one (even though I love 'Still', judge me) HAHAHAHA

    I don't agree with 'Claimed' and 'Live Bait' either, and I have my doubts about 'Tell it to the Frogs'. I think they left many great episodes out...

    Beside the Dying Fire, Too Far Gone, Guts, Internment, What Lies Ahead...
