The Walking Dead: Season 7: Blu Ray Review
The Walking Dead's seventh season sees Rick and his ragtag bag of survivors faced with their greatest threat since the Governor.
With last season ending on a cliffhanger as Rick was outplayed by Jeffrey Dean Morgan's barb-wire bat-wielding psychopath Negan, the tensions there at the start prove to be fairly palpable.
As the season progresses the grief and mournful tone is replaced by a sense of more energy in the back half.
But the decision once again to split the gang fuels the narrative but slows the pace.
Some lulls as ever hit the series but as the arcs build and the pieces move on the board, a lot of series 7 looses some of the way and borders in fast forward territory unfortunately.
However a great finale gives a real sense of set up and provokes plenty of excitement for The Walking Dead season 8
Fans will enjoy and while there is a sense of a jumping on point, the episodes show a series in need of a bit more creative spark and a chance to surprise.
Hopefully next year the hype will subside and the apocalypse drama can return to its best.
