As regular readers know, I enjoy my fair share of zombie related antics as much as the next guy. I’ve had my issues with the original series The Walking Dead here and there, also here and here too. Heck, just search for key words and you’ll likely find all my observations and gripes about the show.
This brings us to the spin off show Fear The Walking Dead scheduled to kick off in August. Oh look! A trailer!
My only question is why are they showing some milquetoast, who clearly needs to invest in a belt, running in abject terror? I don’t really want to watch a show about that guy. I guess the audience is to ignore the fact there is a huge military presence in California and we are to accept the idea some hippie who needs to pull his pants up survived where they could not. If this takes place on the west coast, they should have a trailer featuring a U.S. Marine with a meat cleaver in each hand smiting the undead like a war god. Who wouldn’t want to watch that?
Of course, I may have to simply accept the fact that a show about someone like me might get boring after a while: This week, America’s SgtMaj saves stupid people while clearing another 10 square miles of the undead menace in an effort to restore order and save humanity.
Sigh, one can only dream I guess.
Stay tuned for next week’s episode when the flame thrower runs dry. What will our heroes do?
