FEAR THE WALKING DEAD
Spin-off of “The Walking Dead”
Just in case you are a fan of the series on Syfy called The Walking Dead, there’s a spinoff of the original series on that same network called Fear the Walking Dead. The first episode aired on 8/29/2015 and it told the story of a family whose son is a heroin addict, the mom is a principal at his school and the dad is a cop. The son Nick is recovering in the hospital from being hit by a car and when he tells the story of his drug-doing friend eating people; they think he’s going crazy.
The outbreak starts in LA when Nick’s parents are driving back home and the police have the interstate blocked off. They run into Nick on the side of the road and pick him up and take them with him, when he tells them he killed Calvin, but Calvin’s nowhere to be found when they encounter wandering along the roadside and now he’s a zombie. YES I DID SAY ZOMBIE! What you thought this was a spin-off with out the zombie factor (LOL)?
This show actually gives background what happened when the virus first broke out (The Walking Dead doesn’t). All the original character’s have either died off or moved on in the next series (TWD). It shows how life was normal at one point and you could actually hide and stay out sight; but in TWD series there is no hiding out. Zombies are everywhere.
I’ll be giving my play-by-play of each episode that I watch until all 16 episode are done.
