I hear they are doing some sort of tie in episode for season two already. It's a stand alone show about half an hour long about a plane that has some infected on it. Apparently this plane will land in LA and have a majorish character that will be in season two.

I got it off the radio this morning, so I wasn't aware it was a webisode.. makes sense though.

I'll admit that I don't really watch the webisodes. Most of them seem trite and formulaic. Like this one, zombies on a plane.

There is the dumb 2007 movie: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0780583/

The opening to Dead Rising 3.

The scene in World War Z

The video game: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfile.../?id=224048143

So, I've seen zombies on a plane, guess it really doesn't grab me.

*EDIT* (Oh and honorable mention to the ending of 28 Weeks Later, zombies on a helicopter.)
Yea but I hated the movie for World War Z, such trash I was so disappointed.

I'm liking it much better than the original so far. Mostly because of the cast, I think. There are many reasons I couldn't keep watching the first one but on of the biggest reasons was Andrew Lincoln. God I hate that guy. Well, no, I hate Rick Grimes...maybe Lincoln is playing the part as the director intends. That character is god awful though. Everything he says is so over-the-top dramatic that I want to Van Gogh myself to avoid hearing it. If he says some super mundane stuff like "Hey Carl, I have to take a shit...please stand guard for a few" he would insert long pauses and put mega-emphasis on every other word like he was reciting the Gettysburg Address. Ugh. This cast seems to be light years ahead of TWD and I hope it continues to be enjoyable.

The tension in his eye fades into relief as he hears children playing. It was a great scene, he is a good actor. I can see where people will dislike him for say Carl a lot, but it's only a fraction of the show. I can't say that FearTWD is better then TWD based just on 2 episodes, but I am also enjoying it so far.
So we are 2 episodes in and the rioting/looting has started. They introduced the other family/characters that will be part of the regular cast this week. Random bites are starting to turn people already. That didn't take very long. Being that this series was going to focus on a more urban setting, were is the show going to go as they are already making plans to leave LA and head out to the dessert.

Well, AMC already ordered a season two. And since it is the same production staff (writers, producers, directors), I do have genuinely high hopes for it.

i didn't know they ordered a new season so i'm definitely excited about it, it's great to see the differences in both shows Pre and Post Apocalyptic settings told in story.

I know that both the comics and the show are different but whatever he did for the character works well to the point that when i read the books, i hear the voices of the characters they portray in the show.

I think it has to do with freedom more than anything else. Think of popular characters from the show, like Daryl, who has no comic counterpart. He isn't an amalgam of characters, and he rarely takes the role of a comic character, he is basically a clean slate for the show. So, the writers have freedom to create, the actor has freedom to create, the director has freedom to create... I think Andrew Lincoln does a fine job getting Rick from comic to screen, but, he and the writers and the directors are all tied, to some extent, to the existing character.

Fear the Walking Dead is nothing but Daryls.

Episode 3 aired last night. I thought it was great and I am now liking the Daniel Salazar character much more. He just barged in and took Pete out without even blinking. Being from El Salvador, He must have seen some shit in his day and he hasn't even experienced the zombie apocalypse yet.

In the timeline it has only been a couple of days and everything is heading south. The rioting, the hospitals already aren't a safe haven. The jet liner at the end was flying haphazardly. I think Brad Pitt might be on that plane (Joking).

Who is the most prepared mentally? It might be Daniel. I think Daniel's wife will also be the first to die and possibly next week.
I got the impression that life was "returning to normal" at the end of the episode. The whole taking out the trash part. But yeah, I like the old man (I suck with names). And Pitt, World War Z, I saw that. I get jokes.

I kind of had the opposite reaction. The taking out the trash for me was more like muscle memory and him not really thinking straight. I mean they just blew Pete's head off. You can't go anywhere so how do you get rid of a carpet full of blood, why didn't he also just bury it. Is it just some wishful thinking that no one will look in the trash? Then when he is at the curb and locks eyes with the other neighbor down the street doing the same thing. I wouldn't say that the next day might be trash day, the other guy looks shady. He looks like he might have been in a gang and just lives down the street. Or it could just be trash day and Uncle Chewie slept through it all (LOL).

As for the army/military swooping in to try and control the outbreak, is it a reaction to the infection or to the rioting? They talk like they know a little more then they are letting on. They were very well organized. There was a blackout, but we don't see any news programs instructing people to stay in doors to let them do their jobs. The family across the street I think is dead, implied by the bloody deflated bouncy house (I can't remember what it was exactly).

The hospital is on fire and not safe, we are coming out of the night time rioting, the military is taking action, but this thing is to big to contain. A Plane flying in the sky a normal sign, but the erratic flight path to me suggest it's about to get worse. If that plane does not making it to the airport and crashes into a neighborhood there could easily be up to 1000 new zombies.
So we disagree on the trash. I agree the outbreak, especially at the hospital, is going to be difficult to maintain. The plane making that sharp turn must have meant something, but I told my wife (because we live next to an airport) that it was just the plane making it's turn for approach. I guess it was too sharp to have been that, but it went with my "things have the semblance of normal again" feeling. I took it as it's trash night and everyone was back to normal.

I guess we'll find out next week, but I feel like they are going to milk the unknown thing for probably at least the entire first season. So I believe next week will be back to things are opening, planes are coming and going, and there is a big government coverup to protect the people from freaking out. Our crew knows first hand its' bs, but they will have in fighting because the main dad is going to be on the deniers side (like he was with the asian neighbor).
