Haven't watched yet (will comment later when I do) but .........I didn't think it had been said yet that there would be a second season. And I'm with you........there's nothing been shown yet to make anybody be invested in these characters at all because there's no chemistry between them at all.........
Fear the Walking Dead will be back in 2016 for 15 episodes
That was a thrilling hour of television! Great review as always Hank, you certainly echoed everything I was thinking. As much as I did not like or even understand Coco & Palmer's relationship, or even Coco herself, I do like that she got Palmer to stand up to Eicchorst and the Master, which gave us that thrilling scene of her death and then Palmer holding her heart. That was awesome. I was sad to see Nora go, will certainly miss her next season. And as always, Eicchorst steals every scene he is in, even when he was with Palmer and the Master. I love that character, and it really looks like Richard Sammel is having the time of his life playing him. Lastly, the less said about annoying Zack,the better!! Till next season Hank!
This so far is reminding me too much of Dallas.................maybe that will change as it goes on...........
There's a lot of similarities, which I think is natural. The show seems to be polarizing as far as Dallas comparisons go. I keep reading "It's too much like Dallas," or "It's nothing like Dallas." My approach to it is to just erase Dallas from my memory, and look at this one with fresh eyes. I'm loving all of the soapy action. I've been without a good primetime soap for far too long!
Another meaningless list! Take the cheerleaders from unwatched shows such as Degrassi, Vampire Diarias, Hellcats, One Tree Hill etc., etc. and add any of the Glee cheerleaders.
Good start but I'm growing tired of Alicia being dealt blow after blow..........and it looks as though this season may be a season of change...........I don't want her to go to work for Canning and I don't think she will........and I don't want her to just "play the part" of the supportive wife for Peter........Peter is due his come uppance and I'm hoping it happens............I also didn't like the way Diane treated Alicia in court.........
Even a bad investigative reporter could see that Alica and Peter are married in name only. I don't mind her working for Canning as long as we don't see him often. I did like Alicia being loyal to Eli when Peter just dumped him. As a huge Justified fan I was thrilled by Margo Martindale on board. She is fenomenal. As for the new attorney Alicia met in bond court I'm not so sure about her.
Good show...I expected a little more. The special edition of 'The Talking Dead' was especially interesting...gave a bit more insight into the six episodes. I love that there was a connection hinted at between the two shows, character-wise. At least that's how I took the comment...
I think S2 will be more telling of the series, but it was a far better start then I was expecting. And it would be interesting to see the characters from both shows meet up, though I don't think that will happen.
Awesome finale they got the book and thanks to Gus and Quinlan a whole army to take the master on. Unfortunately two people bit it in the process I knew she was just a plot device but poor coco was simply an unsuspecting innocent who became a slurpie to the master hopefully palmer now realizes how bad an idea it is to ally himself with the strigoi. And while I would generally never wish harm to children I honestly hope Zach suffers horribly in the master's hands his idiocy got Nora killed great end and a great start to season 3.
I was disgusted that the show was so incredibly unrealistic. Sci-fi must have believable scenes to hold together and be good. There is no way a couple of thousand staggering zombies could break into the compound when you have at least 20 trained soldiers firing point blank with full auto weapons plus at least one heavy machine gun. In reality, once they opened fire, hundreds of zombies would be destroyed every couple of seconds.
Lawrence, most people in the military don't ever even fire their weapons on living (or in our case, living-esque) targets. So, that element + fear = accuracy out the window. Then, didn't they say it was either 20000 or 200000 walkers in that stadium? The soldiers had to cover a lot of physical area, meaning distance between them = flankable. Once the fence fell, they no longer had the 300-style spartan corral, and they were able to be surrounded. Plus a lot of people bailed. I think it actually *was* realistic in the sense of what happens when you put people in new situations. Almost every type of simulation shows that people do not rise to the occasion, they sink to their lowest denominator and to the highest level of their training. If actual killing wasn't it for most of them, this is all new territory for them. Don't get me wrong - I see how with just the guns it could seem that way, but real world military training is very different (I'm not in the service, I've just trained in hand to hand combat/MCMAPP with dozens for several years - big topic of conversation).
I'm just glad zombies aren't in our reality.
Talks about realism…by making statements about how the military would destroyed zombies…
Man, they went from zero to apocalypse in an hour. Part of the fun of this new series was watching the collapse of society. We have plenty of walkers on the main show, I was hoping we would get more background on the epidemic. Guess that makes for dull television, since fans were already getting antsy expecting more zombies. You're right Sean, the character of Strand is super interesting. Staying mobile on the ocean is a great idea. However, he'll need to refuel and dock for food eventually. I got the sense if anyone crosses over to Walking Dead, it's going to be Strand. A few seasons in though. I enjoyed the finale, and though we didn't get a chance to know Liza well, her death was more moving than a character on The Strain who has been there since the pilot. The writers did a great job with this first batch of episodes.
Yeah, they really revved things up for the finale. I'm sure it'll settle back down when we get to S2. And I wonder how many episodes they will be on a boat?
Great review Russell pissed me off the min Elizabeth was the new President of the USA he could have showed some respect I was happy to see Elizabeth used his one words against him and I wished this would have been a 2 part because I wanted that Elizabeth would have been a bit longer the President of the USA. I still don't get it why the President and Russell some times keep Beth in the dark about some things she has proven time and time again she is the right person for the job and have solved a lot of problems during her time as Secretary of State. I love Henry he is a great husband and dad and I hope that he will wake up on time and not let the DIA use him. This episode gave us the story line for this season. Beth looking which country wants get into a war of the US. Henry working with the DIA, and oldest daughter Stevie who is in problems now because of her relationship with the son of the President. ..............Having Morgan Freeman as the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court was icing on the cake............ It will gonna be a great season love this show!!!!
