The Walking Dead “What Happened and What’s Going On” Review (Season 5 Episode 9) | TV Equals

TV Equals: "The Walking Dead is many things as a TV show, but it’s never been a particularly artsy program. I’m not knocking it at all, but they’ve always had a very clear and consistent tone that they’ve maintained across the run of this show. They’ve never really messed around with fancy lighting or camera work, instead opting for a perfectly acceptable straightforward approach. That’s why I was so taken aback by the look and feel of “What Happened and What’s Going On.” We had all kinds of abrupt shifts in camera focus, jumpcuts between the different scenes, and lens flare of JJ Abrams proportions. It was an effective, albeit rather distracting change of pace. They introduced it well in the first few minutes, as they caught us up with what happened in the last episode and what’s gone on since then. They kept this tone pretty consistent through the episode, as we said goodbye to a major character and started this half of the season off on a particularly sad note."
