Just a week after The Walking Dead wrapped up its sixth season, Fear the Walking Dead has started up again, ready to begin a new series of zombie carnage.
It was a fine first episode, not alleviating any of my worries about the show and managing to be both too fast and too slow, all at the same time.
There was some good zombie action at the start with some nice fiery destruction in the background and towards the end there a bit of hardcore swimming alongside some floating walkers, but overall it was a subdued beginning.
Most of everyone was looking into the middle distance thinking, particularly Chris after the death of his mother. Alicia began chatting to a guy on the boat radio and after Strand wouldn’t let any new people on the boat, it became apparent that maybe this guy may have other motives.
It was a fine episode, just not particularly exciting.
