Lmao @ “lil Negan and his band of traveling ********”.

I’d go see that band.

I try, Jesse....I try.

RV villain sort of reminds me of Cherry 2000 and Tim Thomerson's group.

^^That's pretty cool.

Being a Texan, I do get tired of the stereotypes.  FTWD has definitely played into that with that new character.  It's a bit annoying.  We don't all walk around with hats, boots, and a revolver on our hip.

Having lived in Texas for six years I can say that you're absolutely right.  You don't all do that. 

But most of you do.   :)

Okay, that's funny.  Not true...but still funny. :)

So far... enjoying Fear this season more than TWD.  Looking forward to hearing others take on tonight’s episode.

Good episode. This show is getting better.

The end definitely caught me off guard.  I was finally getting into that character a bit.

I think people need to listen to Morgan.  It think it's pretty cool how the crossover blends his experience from TWD to FTWD. Obviously they have to do that, but it's cool that he mentions what he's learned/scene/experienced without name dropping and making over the top ties between the two shows.

Another solid episode last night.  I like the flashback style of episodes this season.  It's allowed the storytelling to go on without getting bogged down in mindless details or moral debates.

Cool twist at the end.

Agreed.... Fear has been very enjoyable this season.  (Something I never thought I'd say).  While I appreciate the use of muted Black/Whites vs Vivid Colors to differentiate the story timelines... I do enjoy the vivid colors more.

Just watched the TWD Finale and I'd agree it was pretty telegraphed.  Can't quite put my finger on it, but the "anguish" of the characters isn't what it used to be.  I remember when Lori died - Rick's grief was gut wrenching.  But Car's loss has just kind of dragged on and Maggie's cries for Negan to die were almost silly.  I'm super tired of Rick's "Hey, just trust me" then killing or slashing people.  I haven't watched Fear yet - hopefully the new format is a fun reboot.
