    i used to host walking dead viewing parties for my friends who were too cheap to get cable. this has been going on since the series started and on any given night there were 3-5 people over and sometimes even 7-8. this season nobody comes over at all and im only half paying attention. i vacuumed my house and did dishes last night whilst watching.

    its like they dont even care anymore. yet another too-long "inspirational" speech meant to rally the troops and more stupid, wanna-be artsy time-jumps. ezekiel is cool in the comics and this guy plays him like a massive douche. i hate him more every week. and each week someone else is having some moral dilemna or crisis...rick, morgan and now ezikiel. and by the end of the episode nothing has really happened...or at least nothing that could not have been taken care of in 20 minutes.

    and whats up with the guy in truck with machine gun shooting at rick from like 50' away and not even hitting the windshield...then all of a sudden daryl comes back from a major wreck and kills him with a couple pistol shots on his f***ing motorcycle.

    most unbelieveable and lame motorcycle scene since this...


    each week this season finds me paying less attention. and my friends who used to come over and also read the comics arent even watching. im the last one!

    I'm still a fan of the genre. Is Fear the Walking Dead better than the original at this point? Considering giving up on this series, but I thought I might give the spin-off a chance.

    Well, if you stick around it seems they will have a cross over in the next seasons of both according to the shows producers...:eek:

    I liked the first season, 2nd season was weak but they really cleaned the slate near the end. 3rd season was solid. I'd say it's first 3 seasons have been better than the last 3 seasons of WD, faint praise I know but I pay more attention to whats going on with Fear as opposed to the mothership......

    King Ezekiel is too over the top for me.

    I’m glad they finally got rid of Shiva...the CG was sooo bad, and that tiger was way too unrealistic...I know I’m suppossed to suspend disbelief, but c’mon

    I watch Fear the dead up until season 2 and thought it was worst than walking dead. The writing and acting is horrible.

    Oh please. Unless Rick dies, nothing will surprise me. Even if Judith dies, who cares.

    I'm in the middle of it now. Surprisingly good. I barely remember any of the second season it was just bad.

    yeah bro, I was expecting it to be bad and was ready to hate on it, but it ended up being a nice improvement from the 1st 2 seasons

    it was a lot better than season 7 of TWD to me, and season 8 is pissing me off because I feel like the writers aren’t even trying anymore...they know they can do a bunch of dumb **** and still bank 10+ million viewers an episode

    Season 8 dude...how hard is it to make a post apocalyptic war boring?! Well they have managed. These flash backs and flash forwards are killing it. Season 3 of fear dos the whole war thing way better so far.

    yeah, and I don’t know anything about the comics, but I’ve seen people who have read them say that the war with Negan is suppossed to be the high point of the series...if that’s true, and it’s all downhill after this then
