    It's like Walking Dead and the CW network had a baby!

    I wonder how far these guys will go to make a buck over their franchise, I do no think I will bother with this new, whatever, as you say it just looks like another soap opera based zombie spinoff for teen girls or something.

    Fear the Walking Dead was cool for a while but now is just terrible, I think after Nick (who I liked for the most part) and the addition of Morgan and Dwight it could not go very far and now is just a terrible mess that cannot be fixed without a miracle plot-line or some character that just stands out enough to watch - unless of course you are bored like me and then you sit through it anyway because you have nothing better to do, or maybe you want to watch Morgan bleed to death on the steps of some porch in a ghost town in the new season premiere, this may really be the only thing that stood out this last season.

    Sorry for spoilers if you did not sit through the last season and are waiting for a Blu-Ray release.

    I'll watch it. Why not. I like anything sci-fi/fantasy/horror really. Sometimes being light entertainment is enough for me.

    Well unless it is almost painful to watch like some YouTube videos I guess I would tune in for a while too. That is if I do not forget it is even on, this is really the first time hearing about it.

    I'd never seen TWD until recently, a local store had series 1 to 5 boxset on DVD for 20 bucks so I took the plunge. I managed to get through 5 episodes and gave up. It was so bad and boring.

    And I am a big fan of zombie movies.

    TWD suffered from repetitiveness and bad directors/writers (show was changing them all the time) - it got kind of better lately though.

    Such a great TV show, it's a shame it was cancelled.

    Brilliant show - and the American version is better than the English one, for once. Watch the IT Crowd if you haven't already and Garth Marenghi's Darkplace for a powerful dose of great English humor.

    Ravenous is dope too.

    Black Summer was cool.

    Braindead/Dead Alive will forever be my favorite... zombie thing.

    TWD had many issues. People hated certain characters and loved others. What sucked about it was that they'd keep one that nobody liked around for way too long, then finally make them semi-likable, then they'd kill off somebody else, and finally you'd be done with the one you're left with and totally ready for them to die too. It just never felt like the writers listened to the fans. Carol was that character for me. I hated her whiny attitude in the beginning, tolerated her when she became sort of badass, then hated her when she started thinking as though her newfound badassery made her the arbiter of life and death and righteousness. The governor was the last great character arch. Negan was great, but the show became more about shock factor, i.e. the deaths of not one but two characters. I haven't been able to get myself into the mood to catch back up with the show.

    Z Nation was too much of a goof for me to get into either. Some friends like it due to its brevity, but for me it's too much. I've yet to find a tv show that has zombies and doesn't fall apart. The last show for that matter that started and ended on a high note before jumping the shark was Burn Notice, in general I mean. All the rest either jumped the shark or tried to top even that. This is why, for my zombie fix, I go with video games though that took a hit as of Black Ops 3. That got too convoluted.
