Slow Start to Fear the Walking Dead

Fans of the hit show The Walking Dead have been waiting months for the premiere of AMC’s new show, Fear the Walking Dead. The night of the premiere finally came and there has been mixed reviews about the new series that is considered a prequel to The Walking Dead.

The 90-minute pilot became the number one cable series premiere with over 10.1 million viewers tuning in. Robert Kirkman and the team behind The Walking Dead created the new horror series. It is going to show viewers how the outbreak started and what happens in the beginning days of the epidemic. The show takes places in Los Angeles and follows a high school teacher and his girlfriend, who is a high school counselor, and their families.

I thought the show was pretty good. It was a very slow start, but if you look back at the first episode of The Walking Dead, it was pretty slow too. A lot of viewers said they were disappointed in the premiere of Fear the Walking Dead, but I have also heard people saying they really liked it. I think it is too soon to tell if it is going to be a good show, but I don’t think it is going to be as big as The Walking Dead. That is a pretty hard show to compete with, even if it is the same team behind the show doing this new one.

The few zombies we saw in the new series were pretty cool and I thought the characters were interesting. I haven’t decided if I really like or dislike any of them yet, but they weren’t that bad. I have heard some viewers say they weren’t impressed with the characters or the acting. But the show did catch my attention so I will be tuning in again next Sunday to see more.

Did you watch the premiere of Fear the Walking Dead? What did you think?
