'Fear the Walking Dead' Premiere
For one, they still don’t know what these things are. Plus, we get to see normal life in this world for a little bit, which is so weird to see, but also refreshing.
The show revolves around one family in LA, the daughter in high school, the son a drug junkie, who opens up the episode by finding his girlfriend eating someone else’s face (women, amirite?), the dad is a divorced teacher and has a kid from another marriage, while the mom works as a counsellor at the same school, where a child tries to tell her about the oncoming apocalypse.
The girlfriend from the first two minutes of the show is actually only one of three zombies we see in the whole episode. The second showing up in a video of someone getting shot over and over and not dying, and the third being a drug dealer that the son shoots and obviously also does not die.
Overall, the episode was a little dull, for what it’s supposed to be, and definitely a setup episode. I was still entertained, and the characters and family are interesting enough that I want to know what happens to them and how it will turn up. The end is just beginning, and it’s off to a slow start, but I’ll keep watching, that’s for sure.
