Boring show not even worth watching. The walking dead is getting boring too. Only the die hard walking dead fans will keep that show running and will even be enough to get this snooze fest a second season renewal. There's no good tv shows anymore...

Fear the Walking Dead Season 1 Episode 1 Review: Pilot

The episode moves slowly and the upcoming danger is in the air all the time, but in a subtle and latent way. The obvious shimmers through only, short but cleary. Thus the episode (and I hope the series as well) has a very own air, which is different from the original Series. Therefore I like it!

Great list! So many feels coming up.
All of Elena's goodbye's!
OUAT! Eddies death!

Yup underwhelmed here too Sean. It's early, I don't mind the slow burn.

Those of us ADULTS who have been watching the show since it 1st came on are sick & tired of all the kiddies on it now, like Chad, Serena (thankfully she's GONE!), Chad (what a loser), JJ, boring Paige, etc. We're THRILLED to see some of our oldies but best characters from the show return! Yay Patch!

I totally agree with your review............this episode really wasn't that interesting. At this point, and yes it's still early, this is just too much like the original only with new characters.......I'm expecting flashbacks on just what exactly got the virus started in the first place.............and yes, I fully expect Tobias back at some point................there has to be a group, like Rick's group, that are survivors...........but if the original is any indication--then we already know none of these people survive. I've been told at some point the original and this show will interact..........I guess we'll see being as nothing as of yet has been said about a 2nd season of this show.........

The Strain Season 2 Episode 8 Review: Intruders

My question is how many of the spider kids are left? I thought Quinlan got most of them if not all last week. Where was Dutch while everyone was either acting angsty or doing dangerous missions? (side note the exchange between the professor and Fet about robbing the cardinal was hilarious) And finally call me cruel for saying this but Zach is being a idiot he nearly got everyone killed this ep and none of what everybody has been saying lately to him is sinking in.

Fet's giggle was priceless best part of the episode

Maybe we watched different episodes. The second was far more suspenseful and informative than the pilot. The tension in this one had me on the edge of my seat, whereas the first episode was rather a letdown after all the hype. So many questions left unanswered. I cannot wait to see the next one. I thought separating the family was a nice twist. I really thought that boy would go home with "Ms. C," and be the source of wisdom for the group on what is to come.

I agree with you that this episode was more suspenseful and better than the pilot. I thought the pilot was boring. The only complaint I have is that I can't seem to care about any of the characters yet. Maybe Travis but for some reason I really dislike Madison.

I haven't watched the second episode yet, but I agree with you on why I wanted to watch. I love the pre-apocalypse setting and the terror of what's coming down. What surprised me in the premiere was how quickly everyone went from seeing a cop being eaten on TV to buying into the terror. There was no in between. In this age of reality TV, the majority of reactions should have been like the daughter's -- that's made up, right? Instead, the world stopped and panic ensued. I think they lost their edge right there. What could have been an interesting look a the slow and frightening breakdown of society became "let's just get to the zombies" because they don't seem to know anything else. Shame.

I agree with you. I cant care for any of the characters yet, and that bothers me because I think this show's got potential. I'm just wondering though, after the full blown zombie apocalypse hit LA, then isnt this show gonna be the same as The Walking Dead, only with different characters, in different locations? What makes this show interesting to me was the pre-apocaplyse setting. Otherwise it's just gonna be The Walking Dead with less likeable characters.

Hooray, someone else loved Betty's speech. I clapped when she said, "I'm a lesbian, not a moron!"
