The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon Review 2023 Tv Show Series Season Cast Crew Online
Firstly try and ignore the reviews that focus on all the other TWD real estate and folk being butt hurt about this show runner or that story arch (what is it with this site and whataboutery and biased reviews being allowed through and skewing the ratings?!) and please watch this show for what it is – if you like horror/sci fi/fantasy with a human edge you won’t be disappointed.
Daryl Dixon, a character written solely for and perfectly developed for the medium of TWD TV, has ended up in post-apocalyptic France. Suspend your disbelief as he floats into Marsielle on an up turned dingy, afterall this is a show where the dead walk around wanting to eat people soooooo, you know… The setting and casting one episode in look largely good, interesting and attractive looking people with some decent acting chops inhabiting a world that is far enough removed from Atlanta, in terms of places to hole up, weapons to take out walkers and enemies, world views and pre-apoc-political structures etc., as to give an exciting novel feel and make you intrigued plus the same brooding leads, empathy, mystery and innovative gruesome gore to feel like (TWD) home.
As a European, there were a coupla times it felt a wee bit cliched and I was concerned it might go too cheesy/yankie-view-of-the-rest-the-world, but if they’ve got and listen to cast/writers/advisors/production from France hopefully it won’t veer into painting by numbers.
Overall I’m excited to watch this new series, keen to witness how the virus we all carry played out elsewhere on the planet and sure our hero will be just as badass en France.
