    I thought it was good. Definitely a different pace, I don't love all the new characters yet, but we'll see how they change as the world goes to pot.

    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/...f_=tt_eps_sn_1

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

    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'm glad I stayed with this show, I really enjoy it. Still wondering if they will bring the 2 shows together at some point, I assume they will by the end of TWD.

    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.
