Fear The Walking Dead episode 2 review: So Close, Yet So Far

31 August 2015 12:59 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The L.A. grid is quickly grinding to a halt in Fear The Walking Dead, ramping up to show us what we all came here to see...

This review contains spoilers.

1.2 So Close, Yet So Far

In this week's episode of Fear The Walking Dead, high school student and canary-in-the-coal-mine Tobias tells Madison that when things fall apart, they fall apart fast. There's already some sort of flu epidemic that's dropping otherwise healthy people like flies, and with that comes the reanimated dead, screaming, blood, and general chaos, but it's not just the dead causing the problems. If anything, at the moment, the dead are incidental and the real chaos is being caused by the sick living.

Think about the first episode; the school is half-empty thanks to the flu going around, and everyone's staying home. When someone stays home from a work situation, it creates more problems for the »

‘Fear the Walking Dead’ Episode 2 Recap: Lights Out in East L.A.

30 August 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler alert: This recap contains plot details from the latest episode of “Fear the Walking Dead.”

After a slow-burn premiere that spent more time on the humdrum problems of an unremarkable L.A. family than it did on the looming apocalypse, Sunday’s second episode of “Fear the Walking Dead” turned up the heat considerably. The result was a tension-filled hour of television that improved on last week’s debut in every way.

Following a brief pre-credit sequence, the episode – titled “So Close, Yet So Far” – begins with Maddie, Travis and Nick fleeing the scene of Calvin’s gory resurrection. Fearing for the safety of their kids, the two parents frantically call Alicia and Chris, while Nick searches the radio for news about the horrific outbreak.

A plan to escape to the desert is quickly hatched, though why Travis instantly decides they’ll be better off running away from the »

30 August 2015 6:59 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Well, that didn’t take long.

This week was only the second episode of Fear the Walking Dead, and already, the City of Angels has gone to hell. Which was great news for those of you who were hoping that the series would be grosser and more action-packed. Not only did the hour deliver our first beaned walker, but things weren’t looking so hot for…

On second thought, keep reading. We’ll get to the soon-to-be-deceased-and-reanimated when we get to him. We’re gonna recap “So Close, Yet So Far” from beginning to the end of the world.

Fear the Walking Dead: Season One Ratings

25 August 2015 7:01 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

The Walking Dead has been an incredibly successful TV series for AMC so it makes sense business-wise to make a related series. Will it also be a hit in the ratings? Could it become more successful or, is one zombie series on AMC enough? Could it be cancelled even though the execs already gave it an early second season renewal? Stay tuned!

Fear the Walking Dead, explores the onset of the undead apocalypse through the lens of a fractured family. Set in a city where people come to escape, shield secrets, and bury their pasts, a mysterious outbreak threatens to disrupt what little stability high school guidance counselor Madison Clark (Kim Dickens) and English teacher Travis Manawa (Cliff Curtis) have managed to find. The rest of the cast includes Frank Dillane, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Lorenzo James Henrie, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Rubén Blades, Mercedes Mason, and Patricia Reyes Spíndola. »

‘Fear the Walking Dead’ Sets All-Time Cable Ratings Premiere Record

24 August 2015 1:49 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

AMC’s “Fear the Walking Dead,” the much-anticipated companion series to megahit zombie drama “The Walking Dead,” opened to monster — and record-setting — ratings of its own own Sunday night.

Nielsen estimates that the 90-minute debut of “Fear the Walking Dead” became the No. 1-rated cable series launch on record with 10.1 million viewers, including 6.3 million adults 18-49. In total viewers, “Fear” surpasses TNT’s “Raising the Bar” (7.7 million in 2008) as top dog among cable premieres.

The previous record in the 18-49 demo was AMC’s “Better Call Saul” (4.4 million) earlier this year. In fact, AMC now has three of the top five cable launches of all time, with “Walking Dead” ranking fifth.

In both 18-49 and total viewers, Sunday’s premiere out-rated all 22 episodes from the first two seasons of “The Walking Dead.” The original’s third-season premiere did a 5.8 demo rating and 10.87 million total viewers.

Leading into the “Fear” premiere Sunday, »

Watch Gruesome First Three Minutes of 'Fear the Walking Dead'

20 August 2015 1:35 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

As Fear the Walking Dead lurches menacingly closer to its Sunday premiere, AMC has released a preview of the pilot with a new clip comprising the show's harrowing first three minutes.

The clip is, perhaps unsurprisingly, reminiscent of an early scene in the first episode of The Walking Dead, in which Rick Grimes awakes from a coma to find the hospital in disarray and a zombie apocalypse outside. The man in Fear the Walking Dead, however, is not another hero cop, however, but a junkie, Nick, played by Frank Dillane. »

The Comic-Con trailer for Fear The Walking Dead surprised quite a few people who had no idea what to expect from this companion series for The Walking Dead, and I'm really liking the fact that this purposely looks and feels different from the current TV series.
