Leaving It All Behind
Finally, the episode of Fear the Walking Dead that we all wanted. With literally nothing happening last week, I was thrilled to see shit finally hit the fan. Stuff actually went down guys, and it paid off huge. I was fully entertained throughout the finale. Even though no one really important died, this episode finally advanced our story to where it should be going. Our characters had to make some tough choices in The Good Man and they finally left sweet suburbia to head off into this unforgiving world.
I also really like Strand. That guy seems to know what he’s doing and this show desperately needed someone with survival skills. I think there was too much focus on the Clark’s and family life. Strand really adds a new element to the show because we don’t know a lot about him and because he’s not a bitch when it comes to making decisions (right, Travis)?
This episode was everything a finale should be. Zombie’s are officially fucking the world up so quickly stop whatever you’re doing and enjoy the recap!
Getting Ready to Rumble
It appears this show is not that good. Fear the Walking Dead’s penultimate episode finally advanced the plot to where we want it to be but holy crap did it ever drag us along to get to this point. The military has decided that they have no intention of sitting around in the suburbs and are peacing the F out but why do the writers have to bore us in getting there. So far this season has had pretty much NO action and I have no idea why I am still watching this nonsense. It’s the kind of stuff that can give Under the Dome some stiff competition in the dumb department.
The entire episode was all about getting us to this evacuation point and I truly don’t think it was necessary to take us along for this ridiculously slow ride. Daniel torturing that military dude seemed to drag on forever, Chris and Alicia decide they would rather be looters and Travis can’t even get the balls to shoot a walker. I suppose Nick and Maddie are the most interesting characters up to this point but we barely got to see them and I think it’s safe to say that this is impressing nobody.
So put on your best dress and/or suit, sit down at the piano and enjoy a glass of champagne…or just loot the entire place. After all, this is Zombie Armageddon. Enjoy the recap.
