Fear The Watching Dead - 102 – So Close, Yet So Far

Jim and A.Ron discuss episode 102 of Fear the Walking Dead, “So Close, Yet So Far”. Jim thinks it’s an improvement from the Pilot episode, while A.Ron sees it as more evidence that the TWD team is doubling down on some of the parent show’s worse tendencies and tropes. We discuss not discussing things, how many times Madison will get Calvin’d, Tobias as a potential post-apocalyptic survival god, tons of your great feedback, and much more.

Fear The Watching Dead - 101 – Pilot

Jim and I have a lot of thoughts on the 90 minute pilot of Fear the Walking Dead, episode 101, “Pilot”. Is Nick’s portrayal of a drug addled teen realistic, or just annoying? Is the step father Travis well meaning, or an enabler? Is the mom Madison smart and savvy, or frustratingly in denial about what’s going on around her? Will we as the audience have fun watching and waiting for the characters to catch up to our knowledge of basic Zombology, or will it be tedious? And just when will Matt wake up and realize he can do so much better than the patronizing and frankly douchey Alicia? The jury is still out on a lot of these questions, but we along with our fellow fans sift through the episode for as many answers and indicators as we can.
