In the UK, we have to wait 24 hours - we get it Monday night at 9pm (followed by Talking Dead).

But yes. SUPER-excited for more Whisperers....

I will be in London Sunday March 24 thru Friday March 29.   So you're saying I cannot watch it Sunday night?  I guess that makes sense given the UK is 5 to 8 hours ahead of the US depending on time zone and all the spoilers would be known before the US shows air.  I likely have a client dinner that night, will probably miss it anyway and have to catch up on the next weekend.

Loving the mirroring of the comics, too - makes me super anxious for what's to come!

So...Fear The Walking Dead

Season 5

Episode 1

Was very bloody good. Much more like it used to be - no idiotic stuff, decent --script, sensible plot.

Long may it continue.

I am looking forward to Dwight showing up.  But yeah Episode 1 was really well done.

They have come a LONG way with Fear and have shown that anyone is fair game to die.

I thought pretty much exactly the opposite. My wife and I laughed out loud at a few moments that definitely were not supposed to be funny. 

I guess my biggest question right now is why do they care so much about the factory if their new "mission" is simply to help people? Why not just say :censored: it and move on? I mean they had a plane! And they should've seen the betrayal coming from a mile away.

Probably because the factory is where they stored the supplies they were giving away.....

The factory was owned by L + C

C being the guy who started the 'box drops' - L being Luthor who wanted his factory full of supplies back.

 

No factory of goods - no helping boxes programme.

Did you miss all the beds, medical bay etc set up in the factory?

It was their 'home base' - but yeah, leaving it unguarded was stupid.

If you laughed at this one, god knows what you thought of the hotel arc!

 

Still - I'm quite happy for you to disagree! :foryou:

Fear returns after mid-season break.

Best episode yet.

Set's up the series to go where i always wanted it to - rebuilding society.

Matt Frewer though is poor - I hope they resist the temptation to make him another 'Govenor/Negan'  - the show doesn't need to try to be the original Walking Dead show.

It's morphed into something better this season - very much on pat with Seasons 1-4 of the original show.

It's a good time to give this another try - start at the beginning of last season and give it a chance.

9/10

Massive improvement.

Morgan and Dwights characters are so much better in this show - but JD still rocks! :headbang:

Where I am the opposite.  I am disappointed they have not user Frewer as a larger villain yet.  I feel they have wasted his potential.

And this season has been WAY too unbelievable, even being a show about a zombie end of the world scenario.  The whole plane situation was just too far out to me.  Literally none of them implied they had any mechanical background to essentially build a plane from scratch before they just did it.

I think they still need to find their stride in some fashion.

5/10 this season so far after the early episodes.

I do like Dwight and Morgan being in this series.  But it is sad that each episode I pray for a major death to bring something to it.

Each to their own I guess.

It seems we are the only 2 people left watching it on this forum anyway!

@BladeTX Is still watching, but he has been pretty busy as of late.  So he might not have seen the topic.

But yes, I agree to each their own and where our opinions do not coincide, I still respect yours. :)

Keep enjoying it and I will keep loathing it (until it changes). ;)

im watching and think this season is pretty lousy. I really thought the show was great and hit a stride when they did the big re-cast but has since slowly died back down.  this latest episode I thought may have been the worst episode of the entire franchise.  was extremely boring.  it felt like more of a recap for people who have never seen the show before.  and can we get over this whole leave a box thing, we get it, it doesn't need to drag out and be the entire premise of the show.  you can leave boxes while doing a bigger story line to keep continuity but to keep it as a main focus is just dull.

Yeah been off these boards a couple of weeks.   I'm a die-hard TWD fan but Fear... I don't know where to begin.  Now we have a neutered Alicia, who was starting to become a badass, not even willing to kill a Walker.   PTSD?? I don't get it.   Then there is the big deal about the painting on the trees... is it Madison?   Then it turns out to be some guy introduced the week before.  But the real killer for me... what is with this guy who is asking everyone where the oil fields are??? I'm from Texas and it's easy.  Want millions of gallons of refined petrol?  Everything North of Houston on the coast is a refinery.  Want raw oil?  Head to Dallas and take a left and you will see oil rigs forever.   And Morgan saying he does not want him to "control the gas"??? You would need a full-on Army to guard 100 miles of Texas coastline and all the gasoline.    And then when they have Alicia and Morgan cornered?   This is the ZA!!! Capture them and either torture them or force the rest of Team Morgan to come to them and give up the location of these oil fields.   WTF... makes no sense at all.   I'm pretty close to just giving up and getting an hour back to my life each week.   They are literally destroying the franchise before our eyes.

The guy that wrote the sayings on the tree was probably the only realistic character on the show.

I was full of optimism - even with the fuel storyline (I thought they has REFINED fuel ie Petrol) hidden, not Oil?

However doing a father Gabriel Part deux in a separate show was just plain lazy.

Sloppy.

Pathetic.

Sad.

Downright insulting to the few remaining viewers.

A man of god with his dead flock.

Who cares how they died - when you repeat identical stories in seperate shows - you are done.

Even "handsome Dwight" - as amusing as it was, could not remove the stink of death for this entire franchise.

 

The writers et al are burnt out.

The franchise is burnt out.

The whole thing needs to end and have a re-boot 2-3 yrs down the line with a new location and cast.

Throw the Rick movies on cable and have done with it all.

What a real shame - but to greenlight this identical episode was the end.

Pretty steady 2 yr slide - once the 2k average is broken, next resistance point is probably $1500

9.8 TWD #1 Blue Label - ave $2029 (90 day)
