    Fear of The Walking Dead In Love

    I only started watching The Walking Dead about 6 months ago and got through all 5 series in quick time. Loved it. But Fear of The Walking Dead is another class above in my eyes. Tremendous cast and script. Absolutely love it.

    If you want a TV Specific section you can add it.

    I never liked the Walking Dead that much tbh...

    Game of Thrones is where it is at

    Man TWD is my jam hey. Watched it and rewatched it so many times.

    Haven't touched FTWD yet, waiting for a full season.

    I've read the graphic novels of TWD and they're so brutal it's amazing.

    TWD definitely picked it's game up in the 2nd half of last season, but Fear of TWD has been a grind for me. Too many idiotic decisions made by the characters [poor writing], of which I don't like any anyway.
    To be fair, Kim Dickens has annoyed me since Deadwood, and continued to do so through Friday Night Lights, Sons of Anarchy and House of Cards Mad

    Oh, and what's the deal with a SIX episode season.

    Seems to be the general concensus that it is a grind. I found it the opposite, it actually took the time to develop the characters and I think that will hold it in good stead for the next couple of seasons. I actually already care if one of the main characters ends up dead/undead, as opposed to most of the WD characters where I was more waiting for the next character to come along once one went down.

    Im a bit behind on FTWD - only 3eps in (work FIFO and only get to download a batch of episodes every 4 weeks) but im liking it so far. Not as good as TWD but I think it will get better once it settles in and becomes more about survival then figuring shit out.

    They are doing a webisode series for FTWD thats set on a plane, that surviving characters will cross over into the main show for - cant wait for that.

    On other shows - The Last Man On Earth is pretty good. Its kinda the same jokes over and over again but during the first season enough stuff happens to keep you interested. Second season just started.

    Arrested Development is on the to do list some time in the future.

    Animated I know but have watched a couple of eps of Mr Pickles. It's seriously twisted so only funny by pushing the boundaries. Not sure how long the novelty of a satanic dog that roots everything in sight will last but some great guests and voices as well-Frank Vincent, Tracy Morgan, Iggy Pop apparently, and Brooke Shields.

    +1 for Californication
    Entourage last few seasons dragged a bit. Nowhere near the first 3 which are great.

    Halfway through the first season of Sense8. Really liking it. Bit of sci-fi, bit of T&A.
