Newsflash to Fear producers... setting the new season's trailer to amazingly annoying music will not endear the crap you are spewing to Walking Dead fans...

I decided to skip watching this season and wait for Netflix. But are they STILL fighting Negan? Seems like it’s just dragging on and on.

Fight is over but Negan is alive.

They should just end TWD now. The show has gone downhill the last couple of seasons.

At least there is a shred of hope for Fear now, the new additions are vastly more interesting than the original cast, and...

Spoiler:
They finally offed the annoying, emo, Johnny Depp-wannabe!

I saw the first episode of Fear for this season. I have to catch up on the last couple. The first one was decent.

The disconnect between the end of last season of Fear and the start of this one is annoying. I like the show but that is a big hole.

I am absolutely HATING this season of Fear, so much so that I may stop watching.

I am so confused by the gaping hole between last season and this season, and even more confused by this whole two timeline things. Doing it for one episode may work, but for a whole season or multiple episodes......WTF.

I thought it was cool they were bringing on some new people, but, it seems like Jenna Elfman (Naomi) came on just to get killed off somehow within 3 episodes.....if I am following the timeline correctly and what Alycia said.

They really needed to think out the whole story for Fear much better before starting the series. I often feel like they are just throwing random crap at a dart board, and there is no order or meaning to how things air. Every few shows they do some really cool things (I liked the girl who was feeding information to nomad people), but they screw so much else up

Biggest issue I have is where TWD was great at killing off and replacing characters with INTERESTING characters, Fear really struggles with this. Daniel, Travis, Ophelia, and now Nick are all gone from season 1. Who has really replaced them.....they had the ranch brothers and father, but they killed them off already, Anna Lucia....big whoop....maybe the girl reporter and I like John Dorie so far, but, it's just not a great show. Has dropped off pretty sharply for me.

I think TWD had a lag for a season and a half, drawing out the Negan stuff waaaaay too long, but I thought last season, or at least the 2nd half was pretty good and next season SHOULD be good as well.

I actually feel the exact opposite as you. I like this season of fear more than any other season.
Spoiler:
I really liked Nick as a character and thought he was the only thing holding the show together. I was pissed when they killed him off. The same thing with Travis. He was a much better lead than Madison.


I think John Dorie is an awesome character. It helps that Garret Dillahunt is my favorite character actor. I’m glad they took the whole series in a different direction. The way they were going was stale and very similar to TWD. I think they jumped into them being a part of a civilization way too fast. The nomadic way is much more interesting.

The less screen time Madison gets the better. I never liked the actor playing her. Even way back in deadwood I though she was stale and had no range. Personally I’ve enjoyed this season way more than others. I also think the last episode was one of the best episodes out of both shows all together.

TWD is completely garbage to me now. I only watch it because I’ve invested so many years in it. The writing is horrible. It’s just straight up bad television now.
