It’s been a week since we enjoyed the record breaking season premiere of Fear The Walking Dead. So far there have been praises and accolades for it and yet there have been some viewers that think it moves too slow. When asked about the difference between FearTWD and it’s big brother, The Walking Dead, frontrunner Robert Kirkman had this to say to EW.
What is the biggest difference to you between the two shows?
“It’s the exciting blend of uncertainty and the inevitable. On one hand … you have a cast of question marks. Who will survive? Who won’t? And how will they evolve? How will they grow? I think not having source material, where you kind of know there are stories with Michonne that just have to be told — and sometimes we break that mold, but too often, we can’t because it would change the overall story we’re talking — we don’t have any of that here. We can, and do, go in any direction we imagine and that’s made for, I think, a companion show that can stand shoulder to shoulder with the original.
Now on the other hand, there’s the familiar, the inevitable — people know this world. All our viewers, or at least most of them, will have seen The Walking Dead. They know the rules, they know what these people are up against. Our characters do not and that creates a tension and a sense of dread in the viewing experience that I think is unique to our show, and very exciting.” Read the full article here
So what will this Sunday hold in store for us? We know that the virus is upon us. We met some of the dysfunctional, blended family. Nick, the junkie, thinks he is going insane and his mother Madison and her live-in boyfriend Travis are now questioning their own minds.
“What the hell is happening?”
“I have no idea.”
With the virus spiraling, seemingly out of control, we see more and more “infected”, walking among us. Will the family band together and get to a safe place? Will they realize that this is not your normal “flu” outbreak? In episode 2, So Close, Yet So Far, will see the ramping up of the chaos. LA is beginning to crumble into the depths of dispair and disarray. Police and Government agencies are not reporting on the outbreak. There are no leaders here. Alicia’s boyfriend, is missing and not responding to her calls or texts. Where is he?
Social media is abounding with viral videos,(no pun intended). No one is talking about it, it is surely the blind leading the blind. Tune in to AMC this Sunday night, August 30th 8 pm central, and watch the next episode of Fear The Walking Dead!
