To be honest, the first season nearly lulled me into a coma. In fact, I thought I had deleted the series recording from my DVR after last season, I was surprised when it started recording new episodes. I just wasn't into the show at all. The characters are all awful and boring, especially the drug addict son. I'm not really a huge fan of The Walking Dead either, even though I am still watching. That show is constantly going through ups and downs. It will go really really low to the point where I vow to stop watching, then something will happen that hooks me back. By this point, I've sort of come to terms with it and accepted. I've been enjoying it more this past season though and I'm sure I'll see that series through to the end. I've never read any of the comics, so I have nothing to compare either series to anyway. Even though I'm not a fan of Fear The Walking Dead, it's always great to see horror doing so well on TV, even if there are much better shows out there.
