    Anyone watching this? TERRIBLE!!! The ONLY reason I watched the first episode was I wanted to see anything about that other secret group with the helicopters with the 3 circles logo. I couldn't relate to the 4 high school aged kids going out ON THEIR OWN to cross over 1000 miles of zombie infested country to get to the father of two of them. Walking Dead shows have a history of people going out on their own but this is more stupid than other instances.

    There was some interesting stuff about the Civil Republic Military (I thought they were called The Commonwealth?) but the rest of the episode was very uninteresting. As far as the CRM why on earth would they kill EVERYONE in the Campus Colony? I can see if they want to take it over that they might target whoever was in authority but why kill everybody?

    I doubt I'm going to stick with it but I may try 1 or 2 more episodes.

    "SOILERS"? Freudian slip or pointed commentary? :D

    It is terrible, I agree.

    I had hopes, since it is planned only for 2 seasons, that they would have this great story that would get me engaged.

    They call the zombies 'Empties'. Sigh. I know that everyone would call them something different, but it just seems so dumb.

    I guess we are supposed to see the kids grow up as they make their way to New York. But I found it hard to really care what happened to them. Is it wrong to cheer for the Empties?

    How's this for a one-season spin off? We follow a person as they are living their life in this world, and then they get bit. Then it shifts to following around the walker as it hunts for humans to bite. And then maybe at the end of the day, it goes home to his walker wife and kids. Gets up the next day to go hunt for someone else to bite. It would have to be better than this, right?

    I wasn't even sure what they were referring to for a while using the term empties. I was like what do empty beer bottles have to do with anything? :)

    Not impressed. Will give one more episode. I already have dropped FOTWD.

    I think we'd probably all call them same thing, due to popular culture: zombies!

    I haven't watched yet. I would watch if I felt it added something new* to the universe. It feels like the story has been stalled for so long.

    * did FTWD ever offer anything new? I think I watched the first season, but gave up early into the second.

    I really wanted to like this series as the main actress interested me. Dommage que ce soit si terrible. The characters are just too annoying.

    I still like FTWD.

    It took me eight full seasons of TWD to get to the point where I feel all the main characters are just too stupid to live (S09E01 is the one that broke me), and start rooting for the zombies. It took a couple of seasons of FTWD.

    I see nothing redeeming so far in any of the characters of WD:WB. Go team zombie!

    I'm sure they'll milk it and won't cancel after one season but this is not a good show.

    It's a limited run series, only two seasons from the get-go. They could still cancel it after one.

    This show is complete garbage as all Walking Dead shows have become. But this one is worst of the lot...

    Funny, I'm really desperate for content to watch, so I grabbed the 10 episodes from season 1 and started watching.

    I'm only 4 episodes in, but I actually like all 6 of the characters currently making the trek to New York. So that's actually something. Now the whole backstory of the morons killing off an entire community and all that crap is really annoying, but I'm going with the 6 characters at the moment. Because I just really need to like some people at the moment. :)

    (And yeah, 10 years into the walkers, and of course we have yet another name for them here, and it seems like they avoid teaching anybody how to kill them properly, even now.)
