I'm excited for something to tide us over until season 6. I'm intrigued by the pre/early outbreak setting. I hope we can connect with the new characters like we (I) have with the current characters. Fingers crossed.

Yes... IMDB says August too...

Apparently there's a few brief glimpses in an ad for up coming shows... But nothing terribly exciting.

Yay I can watch it without troweling through YouTube's plethora of psycho tubers...

Mmm, I'll give it a go. :) (Was going to regardless of how the trailer looked... I mean... by the same chaps as the original, so at worst it's Star Trek Voyager, and even that had some gold to be found amongst the flotsam...)

^ Whats wrong with Star Trek Voyager? lol

I was sceptical at first, but the trailer sold me, it will be strange seeing clean walkers that haven't rotted yet

one thing tho idk how they can span this out for very long like say its sister program, wasn't the period from when Rick got shot and when he woke like only a couple of weeks?

cosmichobo

The human body can last.. about 2 weeks without food..? Tho - he did have a drip in his arm... But yes, I'd guess 2 weeks-ish feasible time from Rick being abandoned to waking...

But, the virus could have begun slowly before Rick was abandoned... That still only really gives maybe a month TOPS...

I would imagine they could go for a long while. It'll be interesting to see the epidemic start from the beginning, and they can just keep following survivors like they have in the original. With no graphic novel tie in, they can do whatever they want. It would be cool, but I don't see them ever bringing the 2 shows together.

Yeah, they could also take a 24ish approach to this show and have a season over the course of a day, that could be cool, but might drag

coming AUGUST 23

http://www.amc.com/shows/fear-the-walking-dead

with what I saw on amc earlier, I am a little concerned, this show seems like it might be something like a mixed family, a woman and her boyfriend move in together and bring their kids with them and the apocalypse hits and they try to stay together all the while the city falls apart around them. going by what I saw on amc, all in all, I am going to reserve final judgment, buuut...., well, we'll see.

I just hope this isn't one of those shows where the trailers are better than the actual shows.

From the reviews/interviews I've read it's meant to be more of a slow boil. It's going to be a lot different from what we've gotten used to. Not just the family dynamic but also the complete opposite setting. I'm not sure if the "fresh" walkers are going to be more or less disturbing, I'm guessing more. I'm planning to watch all 6 episodes, unless it end up being ridiculous.

Just watched it...

The one thing I was not wanting to see, was people dying, and coming back as Walkers without having been bitten, as that was something that only happened - x time after the initial onset. Can anyone confirm for me - was - the guy at the end.... showing signs of having been mauled???

Overall... Interesting. Worth another few episodes. As I was watching, I was thinking - by the end of the first episode, it better actually have "started" - in terms of the Walkers... And whilst I'd say we've got another episode or two before we reach a real lock-down state, I think the pacing is quite acceptable.

IF say episode 4 suddenly does a - It's Day 1 again, but from different character's points of view (ie Travis' ex wife/etc) - I'll be pissed off...

I like Travis... It's a good solid name, Travis...

are you talking about the principal guy, if so, then yes, he was bitten or stabbed or something like that, you can see the blood on the back of his shirt.

as for turning in to a walker not being bitten , they already established that early on, while the kid was in the hospital and the old man died, they tried to revive him but couldn't, then they had to rush him down to the morgue so the kid couldn't see him turn, you see the look on the nurses face as she tried to gesture to the doctor that the kid could see what was happening.

only 6 eps for season 1

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3743822/episodes?season=1&ref_=tt_eps_sn_1

kind of difficult to make a decision with so few eps.

Brother Freyr

only 6 eps for season 1

That bites, right? Wish there were more.

I was looking at the Nielson numbers for episode three:



Rank
Show
Adult 18-49 L+SD (Rating)


1
Fear the Walking Dead
3.6


2
Rick & Morty
1.0


3
NFL Countdown
0.9




Good news: Fear the Walking Dead outstrips all of the cable competition.
Bad news: The number of viewers is decreasing week after week. 4.9, 4.1, and now 3.6.
Good news: A 15-episode second season was ordered long ago.

Other news: The word "zombie" still doesn't exist in the "Walking Dead" universe. I guess George Romero didn't become a filmmaker there.

Finally got thru ep2...

It's not... as compelling as the original... Not thrilled with some of the main characters... At least in the main series, even the annoying characters you could still enjoy at some level... But there's a few here that just turn me off... And a few mil others too, it seems...

I am officially a convert.

I started watching FTWD when it first started on TV, and thought it was dreadful. I hated the characters, I found it plodding, I thought everyone in it was stupid....and then when they got to Celia's farm and it was just a carbon copy ripoff of Season 2 of TWD, I bailed. I got to the mid-Season 2 finale and threw in the towel.

A few weeks ago I decided to give it another shot, and I am floored by how much better this show is when binge-watched than it is when watched week-to-week. I still found Season 1 and the first half of Season 2 kind of, well, bad. But in the second half of S2 it improved quite a bit, and Season 3 was the realization of all the promise of S2.5. And then Season 4 happened and....holy crap. I loved Season 4, especially the first half.

Even a month ago I would've thought these words sacrilege, but I think I enjoyed FTWD Seasons 3 and 4 more than I've enjoyed TWD since around about Season 5.

I binged watch FTWD. I got the BluRays on real cheap around Black Friday. Season 4 in now in my hot hands. I'm glad to know that season 4 should entertain me as well.

And I agree on where the show improved. Greatly.

I'll be curious to hear what you think of Season 4. In a lot of ways it's a bit of a reset for the series, but even though I really came around to enjoy S2.5 and S3, I thought it was so excellently done that it was really very welcome.

Teddybrown
March 9th, 2019, 08:14 AM
I agree that this show did start well, I had to remind myself just now of the earlier storylines as Id forgotten!

But yeah, it really hits its stride from around 2.5 and greatly improves!

TWD was coming behind this in terms of quality, Im more intruiged now in TWD but waiting for it to trip up whereas this I cant wait to see where they go next.

Well I have mixed feelings about season 4. While I enjoyed the first half, I did find the jumping around annoying. I understand the Nick actor wanted out but when i first say that episode, I didn't know and frankly it pissed me off. I'm not sure what to think about Madison though. Because there was a time jump, I just felt her character was too different and I didn't not like her fate at all.

The second half just kind of bored me. Too much focus on Morgan and I love Morgan from TWD! I just don't feel as excited for the next season like I did after season 3.

Good thing is that somehow I have a free year of AMC (noticed on my bill that started this past Januray) so I can record FTWD and then binge watch.

I'll agree that the second half of S4 wasn't as good as the first. For me the issue was the villain, I just didn't find her all that compelling, so it seemed like it took way too long to get to the climax.

On the whole though, I thought S4 was a massive improvement over everything before. John alone was worth the price of admission IMO, but I loved the rest of the newbies too.

Agreed John was a great character. Kind of the guy you wouldn't see around in a Z appocalypse, a ''good guy'' but yea he's great.

Wasn't Gimple involved in the last season though? I hope he stays well away from FTWD :/

Gimple was and maybe that is why I didn't like season 4 as much. I realized after I finished watching the season.
I like John also.
Thought the villain in the second half was well odd.

Gimple was not involved for the most part, no. I believe he co-wrote episode 401, but otherwise he's just the 'brand manager' for the entire TWD franchise at AMC, so he's not involved in the day-to-day operations of either show.

Much as I loved Season 4, I'll agree though - the villain lady wasn't the greatest. For me though I think it was more the actress than the writing. I found her performance very hammy.

"Hammy" that's the word!
I actually have AMC free right now so I can record FTWD instead of waiting for the BluRay. YEAH! I'll still binge watch it though. I find shows like this and TWD are better when binged watch.:)

I'll end up doing another binge watch. First half of season 5 was meh in some parts for me. Though started to get better for me. I just still miss the seasons 1-3 feel. Really wish we could go back to the original theme opening. I don't like the new one AT ALL.
