Default Fear the Walking Dead General Discussion Thread

Quote:
AMC announced today that the network is in the initial stages of developing a companion series to its original drama series The Walking Dead, which premiered on AMC in October of 2010. The Walking Dead is currently the #1 show on television among adults 18-49. Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert are on board as executive producers, with AMC Studios set to produce. The companion series has a target on-air date of 2015.

“Building on the success of the most popular show on television for adults 18-49 is literally a no-brainer,” said Charlie Collier, AMC’s president and general manager. “We look forward to working with Robert, Gale and Dave again as we develop an entirely new story and cast of characters. It’s a big world and we can’t wait to give fans another unforgettable view of the zombie apocalypse.”
“After 10 years of writing the comic book series and being so close to the debut of our fourth, and in my opinion, best season of the TV series, I couldn't be more thrilled about getting the chance to create a new corner of The Walking Dead universe,” said Kirkman. “The opportunity to make a show that isn't tethered by the events of the comic book, and is truly a blank page, has set my creativity racing.”

In addition to Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Hell on Wheels and Low Winter Sun, AMC recently greenlit two new drama series for 2014, Halt & Catch Fire and Turn. The network today began shooting a new pilot, Line Of Sight, directed and executive produced by Jonathan Demme, and has a licensing agreement with Sony Pictures Television for a spinoff series of Vince Gilligan’s landmark Breaking Bad, based on the Saul Goodman lawyer character with the working title Better Call Saul.
Season four of The Walking Dead returns to AMC on October 13. The Walking Dead is based on the comic book series created and written by Robert Kirkman and published by Skybound, Kirkman's imprint at Image Comics.

The Walking Dead season three out-delivered everything on television including The Big Bang Theory, The Voice, Game of Thrones, Modern Family, and almost doubled The Bible for the broadcast season for adults 18-49.

Maybe I'm just too deep into Gay Tumblr, but I half expected Nick and Troy to start making out there after their scuffle. :o

If your first TV love was Buffy, this season of The Magicians is the adult who looks like that first crush but is into your kink.

I'm liking Troy as a villain. Jeremiah is also shady. The Ranch is an odd, but kinda fun, place.

Yay for the return of Daniel!! He's gonna be pissed when he finds out that Strand doesn't know where Ofelia really is, though.

I like that we're learning more about what a bastard Strand is. So he stole from Thomas, the love of his life.

Yeah, he was one of the better original characters.

It was ballsy to make an episode almost entirely in Spanish.

I like Daniel so much as a character. I'm so glad he's back and didn't kill those people the way Dante wanted him to.

Ep. 3.4 "100" is the best episode of FTWD yet, imo. It even surpasses most of TWD bottle episodes. This episode alone seems to understand the concept behind bottle episodes better than TWD. Also 100 is a clever title b/c prior to this episode Daniel has only killed 96 people but by the end of the episode his kill count of the living moved up to 100.

Ruben Blades (one of the better actors on the show) really carried this episode. Easily gave one of the best performances of the show, imo. I've always liked Salazar but this episode made me appreciate him even more. His character brings a lot of weight and depth to FTWD due to most of the morally grey decisions/choices he has to make to survive. That alone makes Daniel one of the more compelling characters on FTWD. He's up there with TWD's stronger and more fleshed out characters (Rick, Morgan, Carol, etc.), imo. Now I'm really looking forward to the Daniel/Ofelia reunion. Hopefully it'll happen during this season. The only problem is the character development for Ofelia has been really lacking. Hopefully it'll be revealed soon of what happened to Ofelia.

I was very invested in the story and the new characters (Efrain and Lola) dealing with Dante's dam. I wonder if it'll be the last we see of Efrain and Lola now that they'll most likely be in charge of the water from the dam due to Salazar putting an end to Dante and his oppression.

Also the subtitles didn't bother me or take away from my enjoyment of the episode. It just made this episode feel more personal for Salazar, imo. It's not only very character driven but has a much better structure and understanding of the bottle episode format than most of TWD bottle episodes (which for the most part only go in that direction to begin with to save money), imo. This episode tackled so much in a short amount of time than most TWD episodes (especially Season 6 and 7) do, imo.
