As mentioned in my last post, there are a lot of new shows that I plan to check out this fall season, starting tonight with Minority Report, Life in Pieces, and Blindspot. But I thought maybe I should go back a bit and talk about the most recent new show I've been watching ...

Fear the Walking Dead

I've been a fan of The Walking Dead for awhile - particularly the TellTale Game, though I also adore the show. I've also read vol 1 of the comics and they seem good, I need to pick up more volumes at some point.

Anyway, this spin-off has been interesting but it's also been widely inconsistent. I'm still not quite sure it's figured out what it really wants to be, though I just watched episode 4 and it might be almost there. I just think they should have gotten to that point in the story at least one episode sooner, and cut some of the extraneous stuff there. When the show really focuses on what we didn't get to see in the Walking Dead - the actual breakdown of a regular human life, where the walkers are your friends/neighbours - it really works.

The characters also could be stronger. So far, I think Madison is my favourite and she's had some awesome moments, but again, things seem very inconsistent with her at times.

So ultimately, I am enjoying watching it but it's not as good as the Walking Dead yet and I think that's because they didn't have a clear roadmap to follow for the beginning, while TWD did stick pretty close to the comics, at least for the first couple of episodes.
