Walking Dead Season 10 bonus episodes review *SPOILERS*

You've probably either seen them already or have no intention of watching them. Either way, spoilers dead ahead.

I didn't know they were "bonus" episodes, they've been on my DVR since February and I binge watched them finally. Had I known they were just bonus episodes it may have curbed my disappointment. Here's a quick review.

"Home Sweet Home" - This features some really dubious tactical decisions by Daryl and Maggie. They are just traipsing around the woods with bows and arrows trying to encircle a camouflaged entrenched sniper. FAIL. Make your retreat dumbasses.

"Find Me" - Eh, Leah is OK. If they weave her back into the present timeline it could be interesting. Otherwise this is mostly an empty bucket.

"One More" - This is definitely an empty bucket. Well, we haven't done Russian roulette yet, can we work that in somehow? Drama on the cheap. The writers really aren't sure what to do with Gabriel. He sort of kind of replaced Dale as the moral compass of the group, but he kind of goes homicidal from time to time. The Robert Patrick cameo was good. We don't even learn if the supply run was a success.

"Splinter" - This episode was a mess. It turned into a psychedelic pseudo dream world episode revolving around Princess. I guess she's a bit whacko too. The armored soldier arc barely moved forward an inch. It's stuck on the railroad tracks. Will we ever get answers to any of this?

"Diverged" - This filler episode is almost a complete waste of time revolving around the go-to whacko Carol making soup. Dog was good, I enjoyed his performance.

"Here's Negan" - The Negan backstory was a bit overdue, it was good to see flashes of the old Negan. Jeffrey Dean Morgan is great in the role. That said, I'm not entirely buying the embellished Jekyll and Hyde traits. I accepted that he was bad and redeemed himself and is good. Standard plot fare. I'm not so sure however about him being pretty bad, then really good, then really bad, then pretty good...then he's bad again...just kidding he's good!

The reviews of this show seem to be suspiciously positive. I think those who wouldn't like these episodes bailed on the series long ago. I probably should but am a glutton for punishment. I'm the captive brother chained helplessly in the attic.
