077 – FTWD Pilot (S1E1-101)

We’ve been waiting in anticipation for months. The pilot episode of Fear The Walking Dead aired last night and broke current records. Quoting Entertainment Weekly:

Fear the Walking Dead delivered 10.1 million viewers and an incredible 6.3 rating among adults 18-49. That makes Fear the biggest series premiere in cable TV history in both total viewers and key demos.

“Thank you and congratulations to Robert Kirkman, Dave Erickson, the brilliant executive producers and the entire cast and crew of Fear the Walking Dead,” said Charlie Collier, president of AMC. “It is increasingly difficult to evaluate a show’s success on night one. However, we are releasing these live/same day ratings because Fear the Walking Dead delivered record-breaking numbers that are all the more special in this era of time-shifted viewing and audience fragmentation. To have a companion series to the #1 show on television driving communal, urgent viewing, social activity and pop cultural relevance of this magnitude is truly differentiating. Of course none of it is possible without the fans, whose passion leads to these remarkable results.”

074 – Conquer (S5E16-516)

We’ve come to the end of the fifth season of The Walking Dead with a great finale. We consider season 5 to be the best season yet and the finale, one of the best of all time. A lot of us thought that there would be major character deaths. Instead, we got some reconciliation and a lot of forgiveness. However, we were sweating it out all the way to the finish line.

Listen to our last episode of the season to find out how it all goes down. Click on the audio player above or you can find us on iTunes and Stitcher.

You’ve joined us on this journey over the years and we’d love to thank you for supporting us and listening to our podcast. We’ll be back this summer with our coverage of Fear the Walking Dead. Of course we’ll also be back in October with The Walking Dead season 6. Have a great summer!

Morgan (Lennie James) makes a return in the finale.

073 – Try (S5E15-515)

Rick has now turned into Shane. He wants action and thinks the people of Alexandria don’t know what they’re doing. Sound familier? Shane had the same feelings. It didn’t turn out so well for him, did it? We hope they don’t banish Rick from Alexandria, but what can Deanna do?

Also, in this episode:

  • Carl has feelings for Enid
  • Sasha needs to chill and get a grip. Going on a walker killing spree won’t solve anything.
  • Someone is carving Ws on walker heads and they might be a group to be feared.
  • Glenn confronts Nicholas.

We have some news about the Walking Dead spin-off series. Listen to the podcast to find out.
