Is it just me, or is anybody else struggling to get into the Walking Dead spinoff, ‘Fear the Walking Dead’?
I watched the first season and thought that it had some potential. I liked the way that it covered the gradual decline of human civilisation, although it was a little too much like we were viewing this global disaster from a goldfish bowl. But still, it was better than the viewer being thrown into the thick of it, without experiencing the numerous scenarios of how a diverse society would react to such a devastating virus. There were characters that I liked, and some that I despised, which makes for a good pool of entertainment.
However, from season two onwards, it’s been one of the most dreary programmes on TV. More so than EastEnders, and for those who know me, I detest all soap-operas. So, to say that Fear the Walking Dead is worse than any of them, is truly saying something.
I recently attempted to begin watching the second half of the second series. Immediately, I was beyond bored. I found that scratching my arse was the only thing that could stop me from falling asleep. Within fifteen minutes, it became nothing more than background noise, while I began disinterestedly browsing the net and watching daft videos on You-Tube. If I had decided to watch paint in the process of drying, I would’ve been more entertained. I find The Walking Dead difficult to watch these days, but ‘Fear‘ is almost impossible.
So, please, before I decide to endure this any further, or delete it entirely from my viewing choices, can anybody tell me if it gets any better?
