Trivia

The actor who plays Travis Manawa, Cliff Curtis, is a New Zealander of Maori descent. Curtis has become known over the years for playing characters who come from a wide variety of racial, national, and/or ethnic backgrounds (including Latino, African-American, Iraqi Arab, Indian, and others) but he has only rarely had roles in which he played someone who shared his actual lineage. In an August 2015 interview, Curtis revealed that when he was cast as Travis, the show's creators adjusted his character to make Travis also of Maori descent, and that it is one of the only roles he's had for which he was not required to cover his traditional tattoos. "Manawa" is a Maori word meaning "mangrove tree"; it can also refer to a person's hand, breath, or heart, depending on the context. See more »

Maybe, with a strong emphasis on maybe.
24 August 2015 | by MisterHOHSee all my reviews

Having a story before the apocalypse it's interesting as a concept and definitely worth watching, but what we get in FTWD is a meaningless plot that cannot carry itself into the apocalypse because it's pointless. All we saw are some characters that I personally disliked and cannot relate to, that defy all logic and reason with their actions.

Another problem is the content, more like lack of content in the pilot, with a lot of filler shots that add nothing to the current story. You can easily skip the first 45 minutes without missing anything. A pilot is a pilot for a reason and its main purpose is to create a good impression, which FTWD failed to deliver. Maybe a 2-hour premiere would have been better.

However I am enthusiastic about what's in store for the rest of the plot, even though I'm a bit skeptical since I believe that this season is wrapped and ready for broadcast without the possibility of changes in its structure.

Let's not forget that zombies are not trending very much these days and if the show wants to build notoriety, it has to do much better than the pilot. For comparison, I think that the original TWD's pilot humiliated this one. Time will tell if we're gonna fear the walking dead or be bored to tears by the walking dead.
