The National Guard has build a fence in the perimeter of Madison's house and the neighborhood has become one out of twelve infection-free safe zones in Los Angeles. They have strict rules and a curfew in effect to protect the dwellers. Chris sits on the roof of the house with a camera and is intrigued with a light blinking in a house outside the perimeter and he shows his footage to Travis first and to Madison later. Madison sneaks through the fence to see the other side and finds many infected and non-infected copses. Meanwhile Liza is assisting Dr. Bethany Exner that works with the National Guard and she transfers their neighbor to a hospital. Then she examines Griselda's leg and the addicted Nick and soon they are taken by soldiers to a hospital against Madison's will. Liza is invited to join Dr. Exner and she also goes to the medical facility. What will happen to Griselda and Nick? Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

[first lines]
Chris Manawa: [Chris video records himself on the rooftop, telling the latest news on the infected outbreak] Another one burned last night. Better than TV. People outside the fence, they took the last of them four days ago. People just like us run like cattle, piled into trucks, one suitcase apiece. Headed east. At least that's the rumor. Bakersfield, Vegas, who knows? It's safe inside the fence. Outside, everything's dead, everyone's gone. This is, uh, day nine.

Ahhhhh! Four episodes in and it's just so incredibly awful!!!
20 September 2015 | by the-real-max-g-forceSee all my reviews

Fear the Walking Dead is so bad, it made me doubt my own sanity.

1st Episode: Holy crap! It was just the worst premier for a highly hyped spin off I had EVER seen. Way too long, mind-numbingly boring, terrible characters.

2nd Episode: I watched it to see if my appraisal of the 1st episode was correct. It was. 2nd episode as bad as the 1st. How could this be?

3rd Episode: I watched it because I figured there is just no way the producers of a highly hyped spin off would make the viewers sit through THREE episodes in a row where nothing happens and there is absolutely no pay off. THEY DID! THEY DID!

4th Episode: I watched it because I have some pretty serious self-esteem issues and often I feel I deserve to be abused. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! Characters got more unlikable. The story became even dumber. The writing was insulting to anybody older than 14 years of age. I want all the characters in the show to die and die badly, except for the old Mexican dude, he's alright.
