Looking forward to seeing this, obviously just down to TWD connection. Hopefully it is a no holds barred affair! Looking forward to seeing it all tie in to the main series.

Only six episodes cry.gif Kind of wish it would run the entire summer so that I wouldn't miss TWD so much, but 6 weeks is better than nothing, I guess.

I'm excited for a fresh take on TWD. The original series has gotten really stale. From what I've read FTWD should be a lot more high energy.

I just think it will be good to see the show from a different perspective.

Looking forward to watching this.

Nice pilot. Interesting to see how tension mounts throughout the entire episode. As expected, a zombie outbreak will not start overnight laugh.gif I'm just not sure why Cal woke up after just getting shot. If he was bit before he technically died and then came back to life as a zombie then there would be blood but there was nothing near the car.

I do not like the mother's character (and the actress. SO dull) AT ALL so it's nice to see her get bit yay!

I thought it was pretty good, read some mixed reviews about it, some pointing out that it was slow to start off with but I didn't expect the first episode to be full of zombies. Unsure of the characters yet, while there aren't really any that I dislike, there is also none that really stand out to me. Look forward to the second episode biggrin.gif

I don't think the mother got bit, or at least if she did she's got dying until the end of the season.

I thought it was good, a very slow burner, but good nethertheless. One thing I think that will frustrate me, is we all know how the virus works, but the characters don't! I just want to shout at my screen!! But it's obviously inevitable at some stage one of them will get bitten/attacked and then we'll see them turn.

I enjoyed it enough, too. It really is going to be infuriating though, as Rooney said! Not too sure on the main characters right now, but I do love how tonally different this is compared to the original series. I think I like it and it suits the city life a whole lot more.

Looking forward to seeing which characters really breakthrough and develop in terms of being "badass" and surviving.

Looking from the cast list, I think we're yet to meet a couple of characters, but the core group will obviously be the family, and the step-dad's family as well. I agree about the character's as well, but I think the drug-addicted son will be the breakout.

SHATTERS RATINGS RECORDS!!

QUOTE
Having solidly taken the top cable debut spot with its first round of ratings, itís no surprise that Fear The Walking Dead has now ripped apart the previous Live+3 records. With DVR numbers now in, the August 23 premiere of The Walking Dead spinoff had 13.3 million total viewers and 8.5 million adults 18-49. That jumps it ahead of AMCís other recent successful and previous record holding spinoff Better Call Saul in the key categories and seals FearTWD as the summerís top cable offering.

Compared to its Live+Same Day numbers, the urban zombie apocalypse series from showrunner Dave Erickson was up 32% in viewers and 36% in 18-49s. The Live+3 results for Better Call Saul were 9.8 million viewers and 6.1 million 18-49s, up 42% and 40%, respectively from its already very impressive Live + SD numbers using The Walking DeadĎs Season 5 midseason return as its lead-in that February 8.

The Walking Deadís October 31, 2010 debut had a hefty 4.255 million in adults 18-49 in Live+3 ratings. To add some further, and perhaps humbling perspective, the Season 5 debut of TWD last fall had a cable record busting 22.372 million total viewers and 14.523 million in the 18-49 demo in its Live+3 results. The mothership show returns for its Season 6 premiere on October 11.

Yeah. I'm really liking it atm too. I kinda didn't want to like it as I didn't want to be seen as one of those fanboys who likes everything related to a certain show or whatever, but I can't help it! It's very different to TWD, but is still typically TWD at the same time. Some good development of the characters, particularly the brother and sister! Their chemistry together is brilliant!

I'm loving this as well. Both episodes have been solid, although I'm sort of struggling with how unlikable the characters are. It's pretty bad when the drug addict son is my favorite. Also, I loathe Cliff's ex-wife and son. They are both incredibly annoying and I was hoping they'd get eaten (oops), especially during the riot.

Speaking of the riot, how eerie was that scene? I can't remember the last time a TV show affected me like that.

Second episode was really good! Can't wait for the third!

I think the drug addict son is the one we'e meant to "root" for. I think Cliff's ex-wife and son are meant to be obnoxious (and if anyone is going to get bumped off in this season, surely those two are likely to be the biggest candidates).

I quite liked the kid who obviously watched lots of zombie films, but it showed how people don't know how to kill them yet as with his weak attempt to kill the principal! But not sure we'll see him again now.
