      Robert Kirkman sure did shake the industry with his excellent graphic novels and executing it perfectly to a TV show, make that two TV shows! I love how there's nothing tacky or phony about it, it feels so dark and serious which i love! 2 guns up for Robert Kirkman and pulling off the "infected/dead/zombie" genre, i hope it lasts as long as it can! **Spoilers Ahead** There was a lot of buzz surrounding the companion series and prequel to AMC's wildly popular The Walking Dead. Was it worth the hype though? Absolutely! Fear the Walking Dead's premiere snagged an staggering 13.96 million viewers, the highest ranked debut of a cable series ever. By the show's 3rd episode, that number had dropped to 11.6. Still an impressive feat for a show's debut season. All the buzz hits a boiling point in the first season finale. People complained that the show's debut season, comprised of 6 episodes, moved at too slow of a pace, but people seem to be forgetting that Fear the Walking Dead is set during the early stages of Kirkman's zombie apocalypse. The Walking Dead didn't pick up the pace until the show's third season. Showrunners Robert Kirkman and Dave Erickson had to take a new approach to a storyline that we've all become accustomed to having seen 5 season's of The Walking Dead. We, as viewers, are witnessing the beginning of the apocalypse through the eyes of a dysfunctional blended family, even more dysfunctional than The Walking Dead's Grimes family. Keep it coming Robert Kirkman!

      This is not The Walking Dead or a pretender

      Is this The Walking Dead? No. The only similarity is it takes place in the same world and shares parts of its name. Other that that, Season One should not be compared to The Walking Dead. Travis is a dolt and my least favorite character, until the season finale that is when I believe the events that happened have woken him up. He will be a changed man in Season Two. The rest of the players have their ups and down and I can see potential parallels to The Walking Dead characters as they grow and are forced to change. We like our characters on The Walking Dead because we see how aware they are of the threat, how to survive, go on runs, take down walkers but would we have liked them if we met them during the "Fear" stage? Maybe some of them. Maybe none of them. In Fear, we see a modern day family just trying to get through the day when inexplicable things start happening around them. Like most people would be, they are in denial of what's happening, put blind faith and trust in the government and military and are more than happy to let other people control things while they sit behind a fenced in town under martial law. The focus is on this one family (and the people that have been sort of adopted by them as well) and how they come to terms with society breaking down and less on the walker effect. Could they show downtown L.A. being overrun by walkers gnawing on people for six hours? Sure. But that's not where the "fear" really lies. The "fear" is, how do I get food, water, am I safe at home, do we stay, go, wait for help, do it on our own, what's really happening, is anyone in charge, and so on. When society collapses, the fear is not the visible decomposing flesh-eating former humans walking the streets. It is the fear in what can't be seen, controlled or known. Going into this show, that is what I anticipated and that was what I received. With that said, I cannot wait for Season Two!

      Anchor Bay Entertainment has detailed the Special Edition Blu-ray release of Fear the Walking Dead: The Complete First Season. The series premiered in August 2015, becoming the #1 show in cable history. The 2-disc Special Edition set features collectible lenticular packaging and hours of new bonus content, including deleted scenes, newly produced featurettes and audio commentaries for every episode. Street date is March 22nd. Living in the same universe as The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead is a gritty drama that explores the onset of the undead apocalypse through the lens of a fractured family. Set in Los Angeles, a city where people come to escape, shield secrets, and bury their pasts, a mysterious outbreak threatens to disrupt what little stability high school guidance counselor Madison Clark (Kim Dickens, Gone Girl) and English teacher Travis Manawa (Cliff Curtis, Missing) have managed to assemble. The everyday pressure of blending two families while dealing with resentful, escapist, and strung out children takes a back seat when society begins to break down. A forced evolution, a necessary survival of the fittest takes hold, and the dysfunctional family must either reinvent themselves or embrace their darker histories.

      Why should you buy this when you already seen it or want to view it on a service. BECAUSE OF THE EXTRAS. This show is a perfect show and listening to the ext as enhances the view. I have met the stars of the original show and received some insight to the stories but how many people can attend comic con. This lets you know things you would never know about the actors and the show. I would have given it 5 stars but i would have wanted even more extras and possibly more about where the series could go. I would not have bought this but for a salesclerk who recommended it to me as a must buy. I was not lied to and I am glad I bought it. Please do the same.

      I already had this season on Blu-ray when I bought this, but there were two things that made me "double dip" on it, the cool lenticular slipcover, and all of the bonus features included with the special edition. I was not disappointed either, as the extras were very interesting, and I would definitely recommend picking this up if you're a fan of the show (or even if you're just a fan of The Walking Dead and have been considering watching Fear the Walking Dead). Of course it's not as awesome as TWD is (in my opinion), but I still really enjoy it, and I think they should make more spin-offs!

      I love The Walking Dead, so I was curious if a spin-off would be able to add anything to an already interesting "walker" universe. I was pleasantly surprised that this show actually did just that. Not only does this story take you to the opposite coast of the country, but it also takes you through the earlier stages of the outbreak and with a different dynamic of characters. Some people were bored with this show, but I found it quite entertaining, as the writers obviously need to establish a good base for the story to jump from. I'm curious to see where it goes from here!

      A glimpse into the Pre-Walking Dead world...

      Fear The Walking Dead had quite a challenge trying to meet the lofty expectations of the current fanbase/watchers of the original Walking Dead TV Series...and many of them wanted to see how things broke down before meeting Rick and the gang...back when noone even knew anything about walkers...this is that story...but be warned, unlike Walking Dead, this series has a slow burn kind of buildup for the first 2/3s of the first season then REALLY picks up in the last two episodes...overall a good time and worth watching as long as you have the right expectations of this series...
