Season 5 off to a Decent Start after the Mess that was Season 4
I didn't watch Season 4 and I "think" that I watched season 3, but it was so blase' that I honestly don't remember if I finished Season 3. Right when they started exterminating my favourite characters is when I decided to hit the eject button. In fact I didn't even make it to the episode where they killed off the protagonist Nick. I remember seeing the preview for the next episode where Nick was to die and I said "Ok, they just wrote my favourite character off the show! I'm out". I did just that, and that's where I left off, having never seen the episode where he was killed off. After that I read online or in the news that they were to kill his mother off too! She was the second best actress on the show!
So here I am deciding to return at the start of Season 5, having missed all of 4. I heard 4 was a total mess so maybe I made the right decision? Things seem to have changed. There are new characters and others are gone. I recognize our Kung-Fu peaceful crossover character from TWD. I recognize the journalist and of course our leading lady who is actually a good actress that brings a good performance to the show for her part. The gunslinger cowboy I recognize also. I have no idea about any of the others that seem to have joined the group. With Kung-fu leading the group it appears he has them out doing good deeds to help people? I think that is really dumb and it's lucky his altruism hasn't got the entire group killed yet.
Episode 1 seems to be taking place in some kind of nuclear zone? Perhaps it is a biological danger zone? It's one of those 2, but nuclear makes sense to me because the entire planet is already a no-go unsafe biological hazard. The nuclear aspect is a good direction for the show to take! Perhaps we will have to deal with some mutated zombies with special abilities! Wouldn't that be a refreshing change to hav3 something new and clever written into the story along those lines? We can only hope the answer is yes, and that they fired the S4 writers!
The premier episode ended with a mystery which did a good job of being interesting, mysterious and hooking the viewers interest for episode 2! Well I have to give this episode a solid 7.5/10. It was interesting, action packed and full of tense zombie sequences that we all love! I highly suggest watching this episode, especially if you skipped last season such as I did! Off to watch #2 so I will review that episode next!
