I have been a fan of AMC's The Walking Dead since it first began airing in 2010. It went through it's slow seasons, like most television series' do, but overall it was a great watch. The same can be said for Fear the Walking Dead, AMC's newest addition to the zombie genre.
Fear the Walking Dead S01E01
Fear the Walking Dead begins before the original series.. before the entire world has devolved into chaos and the zombies have all but taken over the planet. It shows the beginning of the plague that killed off most of the Earth's population.
In keeping with the timeline of the story, this series begins during the period of time that Rick, the sheriff from The Walking Dead is laying in an Atlanta hospital in a coma. The plague starts on the West Coast while the south has already been infected.
Overall the show has been good so far. However, like its counterpart, it's a bit on the slow side. At this pace I don't see it lasting more than a season, honestly. But I do hope that the writers "kick it up a notch" and start producing, because I'd sure hate to see this one go by the wayside as so many other great shows do.
