    Out of the box theory from the first episode and talking dead.

    Lets just lay out my reasoning first. Nick had that extended underwater staring match with a floater. Drugs will be on short supply. Nick has already said he is used to this world and I think compared himself to the walkers. The guy on talking dead said Nick’s addiction will continue to be a storyline.

    I think Nick will become “addicted” to close encounters with walkers. He’ll want to be around them, stare at them close up, and feel like he is one of them.

    I really enjoyed the second episode and thought it was probably one of the best episodes of FTWD so far.

    • TrentC

      I missed the – Did you turn on the lights bit – from Madison, and it being a lighthouse. You’re not alone.

  • Matthew Murphy

    These podcasts are more rewarding that the shows sometimes and Fear is the case. I know any 100 fans tuning in to see Alicia just for Lexa hype and be super disappointed.
    Also Rob at around 38 minutes in somes up my thoughts. You know you messed up when the two characters outside of your main family are far and alway the best part of the show. Either way I’m anxiously waiting for the first minute of next weeks recap to drop.

  • DieJerks

    the swimming in episode 1 annoyed me to no end. As a surf life saver i know how incredibly hard it is to swim in full clothing. For a show as implausible as FTWD the ease in which they moved around in the water with full clothing was by far the most unrealistic part.

  • Charles Bikle

    In Travis’ defense, who among us hasn’t wanted to shoot our ex-wife in the face ?

  • Harriet Tubgirl

    I like the Star Trek analogy. Quite frankly, I think the flagship show suffers from stretching out an arc over a season. Usually, its best episodes are the contained one-offs. While Fear isn’t perfect, I think this second episode told a solid story. This show might benefit from not having beats it has to hit because of a beloved source material.

    Hopefully, the cast gets trimmed down. There is at least one too many teenagers.

  • Emily Stobs

    I guarantee you, that by season 3 ya’ll are going to be on the Nick train along with me. JUST WAIT.

    • Charles Bikle

      I like Nick and no one seems to really give him credit for all the good stuff he’s done (although he definitely is responsible for that family’s death, as his snooping allowed the little girl to find her “power pill”.)

  • Edwin Hernandez

    Strand and Daniel are the best two characters on this show. Nick is growing on me as well.

    • Charles Bikle

      Keep them, kill everyone else…NOW YOU GOT A SHOW !

  • TrentC

    I’m still not sold on this show, yet I like the pre-Walking Dead premise. To me it feels like we’re holding our breath, waiting for something amazing to happen.

    Conversely, they’re getting into some of the pre-moral dilemmas and that part I love. How far is too far during this early stage of the game? Characters like Strand and Daniel are willing to do anything to survive from the outset…people like Travis and Madison are more altruistic.

    Notice how most of the fence zombies still have great teeth? That’s a nice touch by production.

    • Alex Kidwell

      Good catch on the teeth!

  • Paul

    I actually liked these episodes. We don’t get a lot of “exploration” style episodes on TWD now that the world is so developed.

    I feel like in the early stages of the apocalypse these types of interactions would happen a lot.

  • Linus Wesley

    I didn’t watch the Flight episodes as they were airing but decided to watch it before the season two premiere. Probably because of the low expectations from you guys hating on it all the time, I thought it was really solid. The fact that the main badass was played by Michelle Ang probably helped a lot, knowing her from the amaaaazing post-apocalyptic New Zealand teen soap The Tribe.
    On The Tribe, her character at one point was the only person who knew how to make the cure for the virus. In the Flight 462 short she’s shown to know a lot more about what’s going on than anyone else. Weird!

    I’m hoping this is a character they can keep around for a long time but do they have room for anyone else?
    How about this: The plane obviously must have crashed some time ago by now. Is she the one communicating with Strand and he’s taking the boat to pick her up?

  • Reynaldo Hernandez Aponte

    Fear the Stupid People. Man that first episode was very hard to watch. I can’t stand Madison wanting to save every single person. It’s not your boat, you are a guest, chill out and be grateful that you and your family are living. Alicia, yeah let’s just talk to some random guy over the radio during this. Smart. Poor Strand, he picked up Nick, unfortunately Nick’s family baggage is going to get him killed.

    • TrentC

      I agree, Strand offers a luxury home that is mobile, complete with supplies and they’re constantly asking to bring new folks on board.

      I hope Strand uses Nick’s family for organ sales.

  • Charles Bikle

    They should rename this show “Feh The Walking Dead”.

  • S_Carl_Dixon

    You guys haven’t done your death draft for this show yet…..

    Who do you guys think will not survive this first half of the season?
    My bet is on Ofelia & Chris!! Can’t wait for Chris to be eaten alive~~~ Hahahah.
