Now, onto my blog about the new show - Fear The Walking Dead.
I really liked it! I thought that some people who wanted it to leap right into TWD arena are missing what could, and will, make this show so great, the character development, the slow burn, and the backstory.
It's kind of the opposite of TWD. We still barely know about the lives of some of the characters on TWD. In a way, that's telling for that show. It doesn't matter for them anymore who they were. The new reality is that they have to deal with.
Here, in FTWD, we get to start from scratch. We get to see the evolution. I think the concept is magnificent. We get to truly see how society would react to a breakdown. A massive breakdown.
One of my biggest pet-peeves in TWD is that the characters have not acted like people would in an apocalypse that far into development.
So far Travis, the father, and Nick, the son of Madison, are by far the best. Nick is the standout. He is selling this role like nobody's business. Well done actor Frank Dillane, well done.
Kim Dickens has been a fave of mine for awhile, however, she's not doing it for me in the show, well, at least not yet.
She was fabulous in Lost, superb in Deadwood, and perfectly adequate in House of Cards. I'm just not seeing the emotion, the kindness, the intensity. She has glimmers, but it's not quite there yet. She doesn't seem to show tortured over her son very well. I get strong, but I have the sense she is trying to portray a reserved torture, it's just not coming across. She can ... she did it very well in Deadwood. I'm just gonna chalk it up to new character jitters.
Any-who, I'm super excited for next week to see if they improve upon some of the things I would like to see. However, unlike others, I would like to wait for more Walkers. If more Walkers come, then that means we've missed the opportunity to have something really special in this show.
