It's a shame AMC only made six episodes for the first season of "Fear the Walking Dead." "The Walking Dead" companion series was just getting good.
The Season 1 finale, "The Good Man," was really good -- action-packed, tense, emotional, surprising, and filled with tons of walkers. One main character was bitten -- Liza (Elizabeth Rodriguez), the ex-wife of Travis (Cliff Curtis) and mother to Chris (Lorenzo James Henrie) -- and Travis shot her before she turned. But the season ended on a hopeful note as the group followed enigmatic smooth-talker Victor Strand (Colman Domingo) to his swanky ocean-front digs and prepared to join him on an even swankier yacht.
You may recall how that Atlanta character occasionally brought up the idea of heading east to the coast. »

While The Walking Dead's ratings were stronger than ever in Season 5, some fans noticed a trend that they didn't particularly like. The show was bringing some of its best stories to date, with Rick and his team escaping Terminus only to fall in line with the denizens of Alexandria. But between that first and last episode, a few major players bit the dust. And critics have decided to cry foul. Why were all the African-American men being killed off the show? During The Walking Dead Season 5, three black characters got the axe, with Bob (Lawrence Gilliard), Tyreese (Chad Coleman) and Noah (Tyler James Williams) all meeting a very gruesome demise. But show runner Scott M. Gimple has a perfectly good explanation for why this is happening. And it all has to do with casting the show.
