Pilot: Left quite a bit to be desired. Can Kim Dickens react to anything in a reasonable manner like a real person. Weird pacing, off putting ' acting '. Going to watch at least 4 episodes but yuk for the pilot.

Episode 2: It got better, which isn't hard when you came from a total place of yuk.I think the writers think we have a lot more investment in their characters than we do. Still none of the relationships are all that believable.

Kim is such an awful actress that for her big emotional scene they literally shot the back of her head and foleyed in her crying and allowed her to exit the scene with a phone call.

Just asking for a believable response to anything. " My boyfriend has a fever, i didn't notice the gaping open wound on his chest but i do have an overwhelming need to be right next to him while having the complete inability to read the room.

That's this show in a nutshell.

Update: 12-04-16 : The worm did not turn. same crummy actors playing highly stereotyped parts. Writers developing awful characters no one wants to invest in. Ugh its so awful, especially when i wanted to like it so bad.

Enjoyed the first ep, but I think it'll get better, the showrunner said it would be a 'slow burn' and that's true of the Pilot, just until the end. I really liked it and will keep watching, for now, anyway. Nice to see things from a different perspective.

ETA: 4 eps in and it is so boring and dull and all related synonyms. How they could make something so clueless out of such great material is beyond my comprehension.

So DIFFERENT from TWD yet still so good!

Same zombie/"walker" plot with an entirely different feel. To see the virus as it first happened is a new and interesting point of view. So far I love it!

Not impressed and I've watched 2 seasons. It's boring and the characters are boring.
I'll take TWD ten times over this boring show and better still is Z NATION. Now that's a great show.

Set before the events of The Walking Dead, The story of Fear covers what happened from the earliest days of the outbreak, to the inevitable collapse of civilization. Fear has shifted focus from action to drama, so expect to spend more time getting to know the characters before they die horribly.

I'm sorry but how is this any different than The Walking Dead???? Oh it sucks compared to it, that's how. I don't care about someone's drug problems amidst all of the zombie stuff. The acting is really sub par as well. Shame. Could have been so much better.

Loved it! You are kind of expecting zombies to come out and kill everyone, but that is not what happens (yet). It seems like and feels like they are building up to something. The atmosphere is good, you can feel the panic start to build and the disbelieve. It has that TWD vibe, but with more civilisation and much more to lose!

The pilot has this weird feel about it, you just want people to start freaking out, but instead they're all oblivious. Hopefully a few episodes in and we'll start to see the real dirt and grime of this show come to the surface, in a bite into your face kind of way. I truly can't wait.

FTWD in 5 words: Gritty. Intriguing. Not-disappointing. Cliff Curtis = Rick Grimes!

Starts slow and continues even slower. The main characters are quite annoying and can´t get me interessted at all. Most of the time I wanted to scream at them. If any of them lives through the apocalypse I would be surprised. Probably won´t watch it anymore.
