Remember how amazing the first episode of The Walking Dead was? How intense it was? How it was filmed like a really good movie. How the characters were instantly intriguing?

Fix that in your mind. Now picture something exactly opposite to that and you'll have Fear the Walking Dead.

Set just as the outbreak is beginning, it is understandable that the first episode of this show couldn't be as action-packed as the first episode of TWD. It's a problem inherent in a show that takes place before the mayhem. But the pilot deals with this issue as poorly as possible.

In an attempt to create suspense, the show is full of little teases. Someone is facing away from the camera - is it a zombie? There are weird breathing noises behind a curtain - is it a zombie? It's a cheap approach and not even done well; rather than creating suspense, it only creates irritation when the transparent trick is revealed with an unearned "tada."

With no chance for suspense or action, what the series really needed to do was create interesting people with compelling stories so you would be instantly invested in their future. Instead, uncharismatic actors play uninteresting people who wander through the episode like confused sheep. It's a show where people say "what the hell is going on" because that's what you're supposed to say in this type of show.

Having given up on TWD in the middle of season two, which threw away almost everything that made season one amazing, I was hoping that FTWD would be a fresh start that could pull me back in. Instead, after one episode I feel the end of days cannot come soon enough for this show.
