So many terrible things about this episode
11 November 2020 | by david-3444See all my reviews

My god, the writing on this show is horrible. I thought Fear was bad after those idiot showrunners Chambliss and Goldberg took over, but World Beyond is making Fear look decent by comparison. All of the characters behave as if their brains have already been eaten, doing ridiculously stupid things in the most laughably contrived situations.

The dialogue is terrible. The acting is terrible. The plotting/narrative is simplistic, seemingly copied from bad 1970s shows. No attempt is made to make the story even vaguely realistic - how does Elton have an endless supply of film for his flimsy little camera 10 years into the zombie apocalypse?

We were promised lots of answers about the CRM in this series, but we get essentially nothing from episodes like this one. What we do get comes in the last two minutes of the episode in what is basically a stand-alone epilogue. Why are the writers unable to organically incorporate this plot into the actual body of the show?

The only things keeping me watching are these tiny snippets of information they toss out. Well, that and Nico Tortorella, who is too cute for words. Everything else about this show is not worth watching. The ratings reflect that.
