TV Review: Man, The Walking Dead Is Boring This Season

I used to wish for the day that The Walking Dead would do episodes that were slower and more character-focused, that the show would dig into everyone's backstories a bit more and take a break from the nonstop zombie slaying. I should have been more careful about what I wished for, because this half-season, my dream kind of came true: TWD has taken a much more character-driven approach these last few weeks, splitting everyone into small groups and dispersing them to give us more or less stand-alone episodes about different characters. Unfortunately, these episodes have been very, very boring. Did you know that Daryl had a fraught relationship with his father? Did you know that Carol killed some people? Did you know that Lizzie was crazy? Oh, you did? Well ... now you extra know.
