FEAR THE WALKING DEAD: SEASON EIGHT - PART ONE
Starring: Lennie James, Kim Dickens, Zoey Merchant, Jenna Elfman, Maya Eshet, Karen David, Austin Amelio, Christine Evangelista, and Rubén Blades
Creators: Dave Erickson and Robert Kirkman
Although Fear the Walking Dead has been inconsistent in its quality, it's been an enjoyable weekly watch as the campier, more ridiculous sibling of The Walking Dead. But, enough is enough. Part One of this season (it's 12 episodes, and did NOT need to be split) fails to build on the walker advancement The Walking Dead teased, or provide an interesting path to the finale until its dying minutes. Add in bringing Madison Clark (Kim Dickens) back too late and the continued bastardization of Morgan Jones (Lennie James) (though "King County" is admittedly the season’s highlight), and I'm not optimistic Part Two can salvage this series.
