While not living up to the standards of ‘The Walking Dead’, I took this for what it was. A stand-alone show exploring the origins of the main show. I, unlike EVERYONE ELSE gave this show a chance. Unfortunately they just couldn't resist shoving the fact that it was a prequel show down our throats with marketing and ‘Talking Dead’. this series isn't terrible. It's on par with season 2 of The Walking Dead. HOWEVER ‘Fear the Walking Dead: Season 2’ which is on TV at the moment is the WORST PIECE OF TELEVISION I HAVE SEEN SINCE Misfits Season 4! It's so bad! Awful acting, terrible directing and pacing, bad bad bad writing and bland characters make for a disastrous piece of trash that nobody should watch. So with season 2 being so revoltingly awful, there's no point in starting season 1.
