Review: The Walking Dead Season 6 Episode 1 “First Time Again”

Director Greg Nicotero’s usual use of interesting though sometimes ‘gimmicky’ stylistic choices are commendable, for adding a heightened artistic value, yet in this case ultimately the editing proves pointless and the time jumps do nothing to really increase tension or drama, though enough of that is served in the momentous ‘walker’ scenes and the conflict, both morally within characters and through their relationships, even if the shows continues to emphasise points and ideas of friction already covered in previous seasons. 7.5/10
