Season Six starts with Alexandria’s safety shattered by multiple threats. To make it, the people of Alexandria will need to catch up with our survivors’ hardness while many of Rick’s people will need to take a step back from the violence and pragmatism they’ve needed to embrace. These reversals won’t happen easily or without conflict. But now Rick’s group is fighting for something more than survival… They’re fighting for their home, and they will defend that at any cost, against any threat, even if that threat comes from within.

It seems like every season I say the same thing: “This is the best season yet” but it’s the truth. From start to finish these 16 episodes keep me engaged and on the edge of my seat the entire time. With a season that is so action packed and momentous for the show one of my favorite episodes has to be “Here’s Not Here”.  I’m a huge Lennie James fan and having the show take a small break from the actual storyline to tell Morgan’s backstory was great and it proved to be a powerful episode. Then of course there was the final episode that gave us the first appearance of the one and only Negan. I will admit that this episode was a tad bit frustrating but frustrating in a good way. I just kept waiting and waiting for the Negan to show up only to have him appear in the last 10 minutes of the show. Even though it wasn’t exactly what I was expecting, Jeffery Dean Morgan made the BIGGEST impact (no pun intended) and in those few minutes that he was on screen he catapulted the show to another level. The Walking Dead has managed to up the ante and still keep everything feeling fresh and exciting. This season however did garner its fair share of mixed reactions for some of the cliffhangers they gave us but I didn’t mind them at all. I know that it can be borderline maddening at times if you’re the one watching it but it certainly makes for great TV storytelling if done correctly and The Walking Dead did just that. I really don’t think that I have to tell you that I recommend this release but if you want me to officially tell you then GO PICK THIS UP NOW!! 9/10
