Fear The Walking Dead (The Walking Dead Spin-Off)(AMC)

Fear the walking dead was not good. May get better, but the characters sucked bad.

I thought the acting was pretty good.

The show has a high hill to climb when compared to the original series.

However, I thought this new spin-off was surprisingly good.

To me, I think most new series start off without much attachment to characters, until further on in the plot.

This new series got me hooked on the first episode.

It provided a different point of view to the Walking Dead Universe:

i liked it, but the johnny depp wannabe is a bit annoying

i wonder how the subsequent episodes will hold up? hopefully it gets better or stays the same at least

and wow 1hr3mins runtime and 27mins of commercials! glad i downloaded it

I thought the son was probably the best character out of the bunch

Maybe its me but:
Overly strong alpha mom
Try hard but beta school teacher step dad
Oldest son on drugs
Hot younger daughter in highschool

seems so cliche.



And the scene where they drive out to the floodway, but stop right at the edge of the tunnel, and then instead of driving 5 feet forward and turning around, they start backing up the tunnel just pissed me off.
I think the stuff in shows/movies is the #1 thing that ruins them for me.


I do like the concept of how 'fear' is the enemy was put forward in the previews as a big part of the series. Seems like a good concept

I liked it. Definitely better than I thought it'd be. I'm curious about the origins and I dig a change of location(L.A.). Nice to have people around instead of desolateness all the time.

I liked it...its a prequel to the outbreak. Not a whole lot of action, but I didn't mind the build up.

I liked it!! The first episode was a build up one for sure...but once shit starts hitting the fan things will get interesting for sure. I like it way better then the the walking dead! I like the city aspect gives it a more interesting feel that's for sure!

Thought it'd be best to make a new thread rather than clutter up the old one seeing as how there's probably a lot of us watching the new show

The white girl GF of the drug-addict son seen in the beginning is probably the most attractive walker I've ever seen.


edit: to clarify, up til we saw the flesh dripping from her face

Just watched it, I thought it was a good start. The Jonny Depp looking skid son was pretty good as a sketched out scared addict I thought.

Yeah show starting slow but pretty much is expected...needs to build up with character developement and what not but looks like shit will hit the fan in upcoming episode! I like the show so far comparing to the walking dead since there is really no story line they are following. Since the walking dead is based off a comin book you can kind of tell what the story line would kind of be. Wish the show was an hour 30 since the season is a short one...

yep, mainly on green screen it seems, but i read yvr, chinatown, sfu had some shots done too, they did some cbcnews interviews on set about it but wouldn't let the media explore anything except a closed off area

my dad refuses to believe it, since he doesn't recognize anything, and keeps nagging me about how i'm wrong, when im just relating the news -_-
