Yup. As a fan of the graphic novels and the show, this will be interesting. The subject matter has never been discussed in either the show or books.

The first 2 shows were good! I think the rest are all repeats of them;?

I think you're thinking of something else. Tonight was the first episode ever.

Yep, there will always be people like you. If 100 zombies don't die the episode sucked.

Plot development needs to happen. Did you expect a full on zombie breakout in the first 5 mins?

Great, well paced introduction to an origin story.

Hour and a half lamefest. There's only six episodes, and the first one was devoted entirely to the kids drug addiction.
Then again, I doubt this cast would make it past 6 episodes fighting a zombie outbreak, so that might be the point.

Feel free to insult whatever you like. Just know so far, for what it is supposed to be, it has done its job and more.

Can't speak to anyone else, but the actors who play the mother and step father are good. Everyone else is filler, except for possibly the daughter. either way, many won't last long.


Out of curiosity, what did you guys expect? Instant mayhem?

Takes a show or two to introduce the characters, and start to flesh out a plot (pun intended). I'll give it a chance

Nope. That's just the assumption you concocted in your mind just because I commented that the show was weak. It's obvious the plot needs to build and they just cant jump into full on zombie action. Who doesn't know that. Just the same, the show wasn't that good. For starters, the acting sucked. Just didn't find in interesting or entertaining what-so-ever.

I think AMC is losing their touch. Was painfully slow, and I think the season is only about 6 episodes! They are milking this like the others.

I don't understand why people don't automatically understand you have to shoot Zombies in the head to kill them. It was a little slow.

I just thought it was an extremely weak and uninteresting script. Not the case with the walking dead, it had a interesting script from the start even while building the characters stories.

First episode of WD was very interesting......first episode of this, not so much.
WD also started with a cast of pretty rugged characters. These yahoos went to explore a crackhouse armed with a flashlight , not the type that would last long imo.

Yeah, I'm not digging it too much myself. Hopefully it will get better

Wait, the "acting" on a TV pilot sucked? This is a barometer for you? Feels like you're stretching just to argue, but I wouldn't know anything about that.

Personally I thought it was set up well. Established that the outbreak was not a "big bang" thing across the world/nation, that the "underground" was hearing whispers and the government was covering it up, and for the first time, showed what it was like as it was happening.

The acting wasn't the main reason I didn't care for it. I just thought the show wasn't very good. That's all.

Remember the 1st episode of the waking dead, when Rick came out of a coma just for a moment, just enough to see Shane bring the flower arrangement. Then he slipped back into the coma and when he next came out of the coma, the flowers were dried up and dead? To me, that was good imagination on the writers part. A pretty cool tiwst. Call it what you like, but I thought it was very interesting and I liked it. The first episode of Fear the walking Dead, I found nothing at all about it to be interesting. About as mentally unstimulating as could be.

Don't get me wrong, I'll watch the next episode. The first one just didn't do much for me. Sorry.
