Fear The Walking Dead (AMC) – Starts 23rd August – Renewed
The prequel to The Walking Dead set in LA at the time when the outbreak starts. Centering on one family whose son witnesses a fellow heroin enthusiast eat a couple of folks at the drug den, and then gets hospitalised running away from the zombie.
As it goes on more news footage emerges of the dead attacking people, whilst the son tracks down his dealer to find out if the gear he took was laced with anything else. That ends up with a heartwarming family reunion involving running over the sons drug dealer. Twice.
It’s epically slow going and the family itself are more than a bit annoying.
