Fear the Walking Dead (2015– ) – TV Series Review (Season 1 review)
The Review –
Fear The Walking Dead is a TV Series that spun off of something perfect and looked to have so much potential; falls short in many ways. When I saw the ads for Fear The Walking Dead and saw the cast line up, this made me loose full interest in this TV Series right out of the gate. After some time of course Nothing else to watch and I needed a nap I started watching in hopes that I was wrong. This show does have a ton of potential but honestly it will continue to be going down hill with the cast of washed up lead actors. Not only does the cast not fit the show nor their own characters, or do a at least a fair job of acting within the show the script has a ton of holes in it too.
For what the show could come to be with the right lead cast, this does have some potential; but honestly it is a horrible thing to pass off as marketing using The Walking Dead’s name to get it somewhere. From the Pilot to episode 6 I just sat wishing something would change as soon as possible to make the show better, I guess I just have to wait through a lot of fair shows in hopes of a good one to happen. Cliff Curtis was a very bad pick for the lead in this, I dont think he actually fits the character at all. His acting isn’t that great for such a role and of course the role of his character…… wow I’ll just stop at that.
The show isnt real bad, it is fair and holds the attention of the average TV viewer; but this show is far from anything remotely close to something great. I hope it gets better, and maybe the creators will listen to the fans of shows like this and change out a few script writers, camera staff, film editors, and put some real kick behind it.

IMDB Info –
What did the world look like as it was transforming into the horrifying apocalypse depicted in “The Walking Dead”? This spin-off set in Los Angeles, following new characters as they face the beginning of the end of the world, will answer that question.
Plot or Story Line –
Spin off series of The Walking Dead that portrays the beginning events of the zombie apocalypse in the West coast during the same time frame when the city of Atlanta was falling under attack, while Rick was in a coma at the local hospital. It shows how the strain was already in full effect in the south while it’s just starting in California.
