Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!
The return of The Walking Dead is still six weeks away, but to help fill the zombie void, tonight AMC kicks off the new prequel/spin-off series, Fear the Walking Dead. In the original series, we were thrown right into the thick of the zombie apocalypse as Rick Grimes awoke from his coma, but we never got to see what the original outbreak was like. This new series takes a look at how those events unfolded, through the eyes of a whole new group of survivors in Los Angeles.
The cast of characters includes divorced high school English teacher Travis Manawa (Cliff Curtis, Gang Related), his free-spirited ex-wife Liza (Elizabeth Rodriguez, Orange is the New Black), and their son Chris (Lorenzo James Henrie, Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2), as well as Travis’s fiancee Madison Clark (Kim Dickens, House of Cards) and her two kids — the highly-ambitious Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey, The 100) and college drop-out Nick (Frank Dillane, Sense8), who also has a drug problem. Joining them are immigrant barber Daniel Salazar (Rubén Blades, Gideon’s Crossing), his devoutly-religious wife Griselda (Patricia Reyes Spíndola, The Color of Passion), and their first-generation American daughter Ofelia (Mercedes Mason, 666 Park Avenue).
I’m really looking forward to seeing what the initial stages of the apocalypse are like, the panic and mayhem that ensues, and how a very different group comes together and figures out how to survive.
On tonight’s 90-minute premiere, “Pilot,” a dysfunctional blended family is forced together when they realize a reported virus is actually the start of the zombie apocalypse.
To see how the zombie apocalypse began, tune in to AMC at 9/8c.
I’ll also be watching/recording Big Brother, The Strain, The Great Food Truck Race, The Last Ship, Falling Skies, and The Brink.
