    So Sunday is the night. 3 days away. Who's in it to win it? Hope we get a lot of people watching from the beginning.

    I'll definitely be watching, but after Summerslam. Really looking forward to it.

    Have the PVR set. The review I read sold me on it, though I would be checking it out regardless. Sounds a fair bit different from TWD, which is a good thing.

    It's Walking Dead related and has Lexa from The 100 in it... give me a reason NOT to check it out.

    I'll most likely watch this instead of Summerslam.

    I'll most likely spot-watch Summerslam, but when FTWD is on, it'll have my undivided attention

    So did anybody else watch this?

    I went in with pretty low expectations but was actually pretty impressed, will certainly be watching again this week.

    Yeah I ended up watching it, and really liking it. I can't wait for the second episode. For a premiere it was pretty damn good.

    Re: Fear The Walking Dead coming to AMC

    A lot of people seem to be really down on it, as if they were expecting the shit to hit the fan immediately and for it to be an all out war between the living and the dead as soon as the episode started. Personally I really like the slow build and can see them maybe working towards the finale for that massive blow-out moment. It wasn't the most interesting episodes of television ever, but their was more than enough interesting stuff going on and a cast that I really liked, so I'm definitely in for the full season unless they do something super dumb between now and then.

    I've watched the first two episodes and I'm really digging it.

    Same. I actually quite like the slow build that's showing how things break down, rather than just the aftermatch. TWD skipped that entirely so its pretty cool to focus on.

    Yeh pretty much the whole point of this show was supposed to be showing the initial outbreak so I'm not sure why people are pissed off at a slow build like this, if it went straight into apocalypse then it would be no different than the original.

    I didn't think it was that slow of a build, TBH. I thought it hit the ground running. I love it. I seriously hope it gets renewed.

    Well, its been a slow build compared to what we've seen previously. The Walking Dead pretty opened with the world gone to shit. We didn't see that descent at all. Z Nation was much the same. With FTWD, we are 2 episodes into a 6 episode season and we still have very sporadic walkers, still functional emergency services, etc. Not saying the narrative has moved overly slow, just that its really cool to see them actually show the breakdown of society and how people are dealing with that aspect as much as the walkers. Like Darkness says, that is pretty clearly the intent of the show but it seems like some people were expecting a straight lift from TWD.

    Fair points all around. Loved the one line: "When civilization falls, it happens fast."

    Re: Fear The Walking Dead coming to AMC

    Yeah I don't think the build has been majorly slow - I wasn't expecting a walker encounter in episode 1 and we got that. Although I could see it coming a mile off as soon as I figured out Calvin was going to try and kill Nick. Episode 2 was good too... shits really starting to pick up... I am into just about all of the characters. I can see Travis' ex wife being one of the major first deaths. Feel like one of the kids are going to die too but I don't know who. Alicia is the one I want to die... i'm pretty fucking annoyed by her. Travis' kid... Christopher (?) is a bit annoying too. But I think this season we probably won't see alot of major deaths other than Travis' ex wife and that Tobias kid getting munched.

    I def thought Tobias was gonna get it in the school... and I like Alicia... but you're right, Travis' kid is a huge pain in the ass.

    Re: Fear The Walking Dead coming to AMC

    I can see myself liking Alicia eventually - she was nice to save Nick from dying but she's been a bit of a pretentious cow since the start. She'll probably change my opinion soon enough. It's annoying looking at the characters and realising that they're gonna die as I feel like they've all got a good chance of being likable and have a chance to shine. Travis is my probably my favourite character right now though.
