    Daily Dead - Early Review of The Walking Dead Season 5ís First Episode

    The Walking Dead Season 5 picks up shortly after the events of the Season 4 finale. Rick and most of his group are trapped at Terminus with death only moments away. Who lives and how do they get out of their seemingly impossible situation at Terminus? Youíll have to watch it for yourself to find out. While I can give early impressions at this point, Iím unable to cover spoilers until after the episode airs.

    Thereís a really good mix of action and drama here, and this is clearly Rickís episode, taking back his position of confident leader after attempting to lead a normal life during Season 4ís first episodes. Daryl Dixon may be a fan favorite, and heís a big part of the action that unfolds, but there are going to be quite a few more Rick fans after this episode. Most of the main characters are given at least a little importance and screen time, but I need to tease that one character completely steals the show.

    It looks like everyone has approached this season with a new excitement for the material. In general, this episode isnít drastically differently from what weíve seen in the past, but thereís an extra level of polish that is very noticeable and a big part of that is due to the work of Scott M. Gimple and Greg Nicotero. Special makeup effects master Greg Nicotero directed this episode and topped what heís done in past seasons, giving us more gruesome living dead creations and intense action. This is an episode that doesnít really hold back and there will definitely be viewers turning away during some of the graphic, but necessary, scenes. Nicotero is able to balance these graphic moments with a number of more personal character scenes that give us a better idea of whatís going on at Terminus.
