Not to mention that a familiar face from TWD pops up by episode three.

It's funny how FTWD has so far shed more light on Rick's whereabouts than TWD.

I always give shows three episodes to come of age. Also this is the first zombie show I've been able to share with my more mainstream friends, and have them enjoy. I don't think this is aimed at hardcore hack n slashers and people who like all the usual zombie fare (gore and splatter)...this is one more for the majority view, and people who like a bit of story with their chaos.

I think it's good this is getting out to the wider public. If you take the time to notice, there's some reasonably contentious viewpoints being subtly expressed.

So, would you recommend I give this series a try ? Keep in mind I have never seen TWD and my list in my General Discussion thread, is a decent representation of what I watch.

I'm thinking it should be okay to watch this spinoff without having watched the original. Any thoughts ? Thanks.

Re: Fear the Walking Dead

Easy: watch the trailer. If it excites you, watch an episode or two. If not, don't.

This.

Take a look, try an episode or so (I always go three episodes to give the actors time to get into their character), if it's good it's good!

That would be correct. There's no need to watch eight seasons of TWD for the sake of two crossover characters that appear later in the series, and their respective backstories that shouldn't be mission-critical to your enjoyment factor. When and if you do decide to watch TWD, after completing FTWD, it will be one of those light-hearted "Ah, I see..." moments after you encounter those crossover characters on TWD.

The first 4 Seasons of TWD is the best about Zombies there is on TV, FTWD is good but doesnt come close imo. Seasons 5-8 of TWD are still not bad but gets weaker from season to season tho.

How about this. What's YOUR opinion on the show ? Do You like it ? Are Seasons 1-4 better than 5-8 ?
Honestly, I want to know what others think, and don't really need advice on how to discern what excites me. Obviously, I'm giving some value to others opinions of shows they watch. If it bothers you that I'm asking and you don't like sharing, that's fine, but this, "if not, don't" is a little ridiculous, imo. I'm 51 years old, lol, Hmmm, let me think if I've ever considered "watching the trailer" or an episode or two, to see if I like a show. Ha. C'mon, you know me well enough just from here, that I've negated numerous Series after 1 or 2 episodes. It's perfectly fine to like a show and recommend it, especially if asked directly.

You either recommend it or you don't. I'm not going to judge you if you like something that I don't. I obviously want to hear an opinion, or I wouldn't have asked. This IS the Fear the Walking Dead thread, yes ? Ya know I'm doing my best not to even mention a different series on a particular thread. Can't have that mess. LOL.

Peace, bro.

I wrote "Yay, renewed! smile" a few posts back, so you could already know that I like the show.

I was just trying to suggest to you a way to find out if the show is for you. You won't find out if you like it by asking others if they like it. That's why I didn't go further in that direction.

Sorry my reply wasn't as helpful to you as what HomerS and Lollie wrote. cool

Re: Fear the Walking Dead

Ok, I'm on S01ep03...and it's awesome so far. Glad I chose this before TWD, actually.
This will fit in nicely with the other Series I'm watching.

Ha. I'm up to S2Ep08 of FTWD (recall when I started), and it's probably my favorite of the 10 or so different shows I'm currently watching. Have a feeling now I'll end up viewing TWD and any other spinoffs. LOL.
Crazy how I keep finding these.

Good to hear you like it. I'm looking forward to your review once you've finished season 5 (which ends Sep 29, 2019).

Cool. I'll definitely let you know. I'm aware of the direction the reviews are going, but I don't always put too much stock in the uber critical zombie followers. smile  I'm no zombie apocalypse connoisseur....Glad I listened to ya'll.
Probably wrap up season 5 by mid October -
