    Thought this second episode was depressing as hell, strong start of season, that park on the Island, what a nightmare.

    I’m watching it and I loved last night’s episode. I’m not usually a fan of those self contained type episodes on Walking Dead: Original Recipe (Morgan and the Kung Fu Master or Beth and Darryl at the house), but this one worked. I think it’s because it was something that actually moved the story forward instead of just giving backstory and/or exposition. Last night’s episode was about how much help do you give others, how are others mentally/emotionally dealing with the crisis, and how much can kids and teenagers handle. Who would have thought that Nick would be the happy outgoing one with the kids? Who would have thought Chris would be that sullen and walker kill happy? I love the growing strength and confidence of Madison. I was glad to see Salazar was able to find some more stuff about Strand. When the teenage brother told his young brother to look at the boat and wave, though, I was thinking of when Carol told the girl to look at the flowers. 

    Overall, a very strong start to the season, in my opinion.

    I thought this was not as good as the previous two, they are dragging to much this thing with Strand. It was great to see the characters from the Plane webisodes and the Pilot, however pretty shit what was done to them, hope this isn’t the last time we see them.

    It wasn’t a good as the last episode, no, but I still enjoyed it. I was reading the recap on EW.com and some folks hate it, and I think it’s because it’s not TWD and it’s not all zombies. I treat it as a different show/tone entirely. This is about people learning that the apocalypse is happening and how they deal with it. TWD is about people post-apocalypse. Of course FTWD folks make stupid decisions, they don’t know the full scope of what’s going on.

    But I was having a conversation with a friend yesterday about Zombies: Original Recipe (aka TWD) and we see the flaws in it as well. Neither are perfect shows but both have times when they are great (Carol this season) and awful (Morgan bottle episode).

    This could’ve been such a landmark episode for the series, but it was so poorly structured, horribly edited and some of those new characters, awful, jesus.

    Denis, there are many of us out there watching FEAR THE WALKING DEAD, fear not.

    Nick, to Strand: “Are you insane?”
    Strand: “In a world that has gone mad, you have to
    embrace the madness”
    Nick, as Strand exits: “So is that a yes?”

    I love the Gothic pacing.
    So far, Nick and Strand are the most compelling characters.
    Lorenzo Henrie(Chris) and Ruben Blades(Daniel) are also exceptional, as is Kim Dickens(Madison). Cliff Curtis(Travis) is good, ok to good. I am hoping for more character development. The constraints were on TWD, and the last episode totally sucked…poorly conceived and written. All of Rick’s crew wandering aimlessly through the countyside only to be captured by a psychopath, really? again?…lame story development.
    At least FTWD does not have to follow a graphic novel storyline.

    Haven’t been having lots of time to comment these last few days but, I think the border crossing wasn’t handled very well, but it is kind of fascinating watching what is going on with Nick and if they handle it well, Chris’arc could become interesting, but he would have to do something really drastic like kill some major character. Daniel is my favorite character along with Nick, but I wish Dougray Scott could’ve been around a little longer, I was very fond of his character Thomas Abigail and his plot with Strand had a lot of potential.
