Just watch Day of the Dead, then move on. Nothing from the Walking Dead, or it's spin offs, get anywhere near close.

Or just watch what you like and let others watch what they like. Simples.

So is Fear back after they get totally shafted and are isolated or is that the latest?

The show had to stop filming season 6 due to Covid but we should have the new spin off The Walking Dead World Beyond as soon as they can finish post production and if you can get it your region there is and 6 part web series The Althea Tapes which features Althea interviewing different survivors for their story.

Cheers 69,
Will keep an eye out for those, I finally got round to watching series ten finale and did enjoy the twists and turns of this series, sad to say my least favourite character from the comic turned up a the end, hopefully she won't be doing the heavy lifting in series 11.... Whenever that happens!

On the off chance you missed the news, that was not actually the finale as the proper finale was not finished in time before the lockdown hit. So the ‘actual’ finale will air as a special episode later in the year.

I love Fear. It's had it's ups and downs, but mainly ups. Started "ok", picked up in S2 and 3, went a bit "meh" then at one point (during the Negan TWD) was actually better than it's parent program imo. Very brave of them to do a reset too. Let's see what happens!

I'm continuing through Season 5 of Fear The Walking Dead and like the parent show, it continues to delight and frustrate in equal measure.

Delighting you have Lennie James who can grab you by the heartstrings with just an "Ummm" and a glance to the side as in 210 Words Per Minute (Episode 10 I think where he and Grace are in a shopping mall).

Frustrating are the pathetic shark villain of Logan/Matt Frewer (a non-Lethal version of The Governor/Negan), ott cheese (John Dorie's trick shot*) and storylines you know will only last three episodes otherwise they've painted themselves into a corner (e.g Alicia's conscientious objection).

But overall, I'm still on board as the diverse cast resembles that of Superstore more and more. We just need a fussy Mateo in there now.

* if the "splitting the bullet" trick shot had actually been that; a trick (maybe two shots fired very quickly in succession) then I'd have bought it more. And hey, that might have even added a more believable theme about things not being what they seem in Humbug Gulch. I suppose John Dorrie character relies on a charming performance from Garret Dillahunt and you just rolling with the unbelievableness of his character. Which mostly, I do.

Oh and I don't know if it's a COVID thing but some shots in Season 5 really look like the actors aren't in the same location... just a hint of green screen around some of them. I am aware that TV shows sometimes use special effects shots for something mundane like a character at a bus-stop but some of these seem quite noticeable. Or more likely my eyesight is going.

Ps: Day of the Dead is shit!

Joking! He’s fine and still firing off his pistol,  he is the shows moral barometer after all.
