So far I'm loving it. I was a fan of the Walking Dead and sad to see it end.

I'm not really into zombies - I can't stand zombie movies in general and it took me a long time to even check out that series because of my scepticism. But I guess it is the examination of human nature, and how people cope with crisis and real struggle, how it effects relationships and personality.

Sometimes I wonder if we don't become more fascinated with end-of-society catastrophy scenarios (doom porn and such) exactly because our world has gotten too comfortable, too automatic, too....boring!

Perhaps we retain the need to face challenge to survival, and at some point miss the way it brings us back to our social animal within, and the necessity to truly and sincerely need each other. When there really is dire threat to our lives, all fears of reaching out to others become knocked down.

As long as life stays easy, we can cringe behind our computer screens, order our groceries on-line, tell our selves we're being social because we tweeted a picture, and brave because we dared to face down a troll. While our machines do our laundry and dishes, and the food is delivered by a faceless teen at the door for two seconds.
It's all bs, and I suspect our bodies are dying to get out and have real interaction with the real world!
If the world suddenly blew up around us, our survival instincts would be unleashed. That might just be the point.

If I have to face the end of the world listening to Hipster love songs as a sound track I probably will hurt some one

Episode 6 wasn't too bad. But given the population of LA you figure there would be hoards of zombies wandering around.
Go down to Hollywood and there are hoards of zombies wandering around now.

No sure how i feel about this show after watching the first seasons finale. From the get go ive hated Madison (the mother)
She seems completely wooden and lacks any acting ability. Shes busts in her old bosses head with a fire extinguisher and walks it off, like not even phased. Shes always expressionless, as if shes been on prozac for 5 years and now lacks any emotion.
The Father - Travis is a complete fool. The actor played Pablo Escobar in the movie blow, but the writers in FTWD have made him into a sissy. The only decent characters ive come across are the daughter - Alicia, cause shes eye candy and the new guy Strand because he seems like a cut throat, grease ball.

I had high hopes for this series, but with the exception of the season 1 finale, have been let down. The best part was when Travis's ex wife let him shoot her in the head....every mans dream...

I just hope S2 has more action and character development to it.

I have to agree that at least the finale episode made it worth the trip so far.

The dad finally manned up at the end, after being a whiny b*tch the whole season. Just when I was getting to like the junkee kid, he went and did that morphine drip thing. Now, pretty much confirmed in my "wish the zombies would get him" file. The sister is a clueless tool, and while they are trying to make the younger boy out to be some kind of activist, he really needs a reality check. The mom is hit or miss...but she's still the most likable of the bunch. Which isn't saying much.

At least they met up with a rich prepper. He's pretty cool, so far. Finally in these shows, a man with a plan! Of course, I'm sure he'll get killed off though, because otherwise, kind of a short show, hehe...

Not sure what is up with the yacht. I mean, usually, something that big would at least have a couple of crew members. Personally, if I was the crew, I would have just taken off without the boss I'm hoping they get aboard with a couple of zombie crewmen to deal with. (otherwise why is it still there)?
