Nothing happens ... and when things finally happen they turn the camera away for reaction shots. I'll just assume they are low budgeting this thing.

I can't believe a follow up show to The Walking Dead can be this bad. Terrible.

Do we know if this will be a split season like the original?

Thought this episode was ok. Better than the first episode at least. The main problem with this episode for me was the slow useless moments like when the girl is walking down the street signing billboards.

I did like the girl turning but thought it was silly how she died. The globe was way up high out of her reach. Also she must have seen it a hundred times why would she get into it now. She didn't show any interest in the globe when druggie had it.

I liked the direction of the ending but not how it went down. If they removed the more useless parts that could have ended the episode better. It wasn't really clear to me that the dad was going to kill the family for a easy out. He might have been saving he pills for when the S hit the fan and there is no way out. They were jumping to conclusions pretty quick.

I think the implication was that until the old person clothing wearer opened the globe, she didn't really know where the pills were.

That's what I gathered from the ep as well.

Why was he even going through their things? Was it for drugs? If so, why didn't they even question why he was doing that( sorry, I don't know their names and at this point probably never will )

I think it was because the young kid said something about how they would get power pills that would save them or some crap like that.

I completely missed that the kid talked about pills. The girl taking the suicide pills makes sense now.

He's styling now. He has an Abigail polo on under that jacket now.

I must've totally zoned out on that part, cuz I thought he was looking to score some drugs too.

Liked:

* The nice use of the Songs: Ohia song
* The total surprise that the father was up to no good

Disliked
* Having to lie about the second thing that I liked on the other list
* Everything else

So, an hour of program and of significance, we learn that San Diego is a no-go, and... Yeah, I guess that's about it.

They build up to something that sounds interesting, last week, and this week they just go and hide near the shore, eliminating or at least delaying the threat.

It was also surmised, -though not definitively, -that the Western half of the United States is pretty much "gone", or at least, out of contact.

It was when he was showing the old clothing guy his room with all those action figures.

I liked how they pretty much resolved any issues they had of having to do any location shooting by basically telling us that all the locations a west coast based show would have to film have been carpet bombed and napalmed to kingdom come.

Guess we'll never see any of those west coast iconic locations anymore. Fear The Walking Dead - Filmed solely on a mother fuckin' boat.

The season was filmed in Baja, Mexico and at Baja Studios. They started shooting in December.

AMC probably got a great deal with much cheaper production costs & labor than shooting in LA, Vancouver or Atlanta.

Would the military even be able to napalm the entire coast? Sure, they could hit all the major cities but what about every nook and cranny of all the suburbs?

I thought this was better than the 1st episode. Meeting the survivalist family was interesting and then seeing the suicide pills.

I did enjoy the young daughter chomping on the Mom's throat. Although, they cut away from it too fast.

And why again was Salazar, Ofelia and Strand not invited into the house?

Haven't' watched this week's episode yet. Are all these people dead yet? They make the morons on TWD look like Rhodes Scholars.

Well, they finally did it, they made the most boring episode of any zombie show ever. I'm not sure if they will be able to top this one. Congrats guys!
