Spin off series of The Walking Dead that portrays the beginning events of the zombie apocalypse in the West coast during the same time frame when the city of Atlanta was falling under attack, while Rick was in a coma at the local hospital. It shows how the strain was already in full effect in the south while it's just starting in California.
I can understand the distaste for s4 and 5, but hear me out. I started watching with s5. After catching up on the main Walking Dead, I was bored and decided to give Fear a shot. I watched trailers and just decided to start with s5 because the cinematography and production design judging off trailers looked awesome. I finished it and Im watching s4 atm.
I dont have any strong negative feelings about both 4+5 because I dont know the earlier seasons. I suspect that 1-3 build up a great show with good writing and 4 completely changed it. You can just start the show with s4. So I can understand people who invested their time and liked the older seasons and now hate the new ones. The writing of 5 isnt great, but to me the show is dumb fun. High production value, every episode they show you a new place with new problems and the cinematography is very good. The biggest problems to me were the villain Logan, who wasnt really used well and Altheas tapes, which are interesting, but stop doing whole episodes with just the bad quality video tapes.
Also while people say that S5 is slow af, I highly believe that it could provide very good build up to S6. This is of course speculation, but S6 looks highly promising as a continuation point from 5.
At the end of day, yes, the new Fear seasons arent like the old ones or like TWD, but they are really enjoyable if you dont take the writing very serious and enjoy the high quality production.
