When you get into issues of quality where entertainment is concerned, it’s a sticky morass, a greasy, canted slope, because it’s all so subjective. How can one specifically state whether or not something is “good” or “bad”? Is it merely a matter of critical consensus? If enough people loathe something and agree that it is lousy, does that make it so, even when there’s at least one guy who thought it was brilliant? Sure, we can all agree that GIGLI sucked, but there’s bound to be SOMEbody out there who liked it. Who is to say that our opinions are correct and his is wrong? Ed Wood’s PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE is officially regarded as the “worst movie ever made,” yet it has a huge cult following who collectively believe it is brilliant. (It is.) I even know a guy who liked all the FANTASTIC FOUR movies, and a guy who thinks Nicholas Cage is the greatest actor in the world. See, it’s all relative, and it’s all a matter of opinion.
That being said, see if you agree with this compendium of the ranking of episodes of THE WALKING DEAD in terms of quality. You might generally be in agreement with this chick’s appraisal, but sheer probability guarantees there’s gonna be at least one episode you would’ve ranked higher or lower on the list. Any glaring mistakes that you can see?
