    Well TWD went to shit really fast and this looks like a cheap cash-in trying to get the same profit that TWD did.

    So no thank you.

    Yeah I have long since given up on the original show, a pity given the promise of the pilot. I do not normally grab shows before they have finished a series, or otherwise been cancelled, but I thought I would make an exception. However I have yet to get around to it, and I also have that dead rising film to watch so that will probably come first when I am in a zombies mood.

    So basically they just added "Fear" to The Walking Dead. Real creative, AMC. I'll give Fear the Walking Dead a watch tonight, anyway.

    I dodged FAST's comment and others so nothing was spoiled but I predict that this will be a borefest as TWD is.

    its moving far too slow, really hope they pick up the pace rather then focusing on the kids drug use and "family drama"

    The pilot episode was rather uniteresting, slow and boring. I thought it was a girl when the first character showed up but it was a guy.

    I'll give it a 2nd chance when the next episode is out but if still a no go I'll just stick to the regular TWD.

    That's no excuse. They could've used 20-30mins to get an overall of all the characters and instead it was a shitty pilot episode.

    It makes TWD's pilot episode look like a masterpiece, although joking aside, it definitely was great! Unlike this pile of poo.

    Hoping for a slow burn, but never know. We don't know the characters yet, so we aren't invested.

    A show going fast into action would be kinda lame in my opinion.

    A show to be interesting doesn't need to jump right into the zombie action.

    Hate to say it but it was worse than an episode of Zoo. At least in Zoo I'd get to nitpick shit to complain. Here.. Here it's just dull as fuck.

    Yea I know, it was really dull with the typical high school crap. It would of been more interesting if it had more than one protagonist.

    The end of the ep was kind of cliff hanging to the imminent infestation
