Fear the Walking Dead Arrives
The show that The Walking Dead (TWD) fans has been waiting for all summer is now about to bring the herd of walkers to the second largest city in the U.S. The pilot airs tonight. Don’t forget to set your DVRs and stay off of social media for those pesky spoilers from the East Coast. Remember what happened last year during the mid-season finale? AMC is hoping this show gets all of the same mojo that has made TWD the most popular show on TV. Game of Thrones fans want to argue, but TWD doesn’t have many letdown episodes.
As for the show, AMC has already given us a quick synopsis. In the TWD timeline, the show will take us through the events just before the apocalypse while Rick Grimes was in a coma. It will center around a fractured family…a guidance counselor Madison Clark (Kim Dickens) and the English teacher Travis Manawa (Cliff Curtis) bring their families together in a backdrop of Downtown LA. If Fear is anything like TWD, the character development around this Brady Bunch situation is going to be the driving force behind the show. The zombies might have something to do with viewers tuning in as well.
We’ve seen urban zombie on screen before – World War Z and 28 Days Later are films that come to mind. How will this play out in the TWD world?
