Fear the Walking Dead doesn’t quite live up to the strong start its had so far this season, but it’s not as bad as Team Zombie feared it would be. It’s Zombpocalypse Now!
Season 3, Episode 5 “Burning in Water, Drowning in Flame”
Written by Suzanne Heathcote
Directed by Daniel Stamm
Timothy: This episode of Fear the Walking Dead was directed by Daniel Stamm. He directed The Last Exorcism.
Dustin: Didn’t we all go see that in the theater? We liked it, as I recall.
Timothy: We did. One of the few found footage horror films I’ve ever liked, actually.
Dustin: As opposed to Paranormal Activity. Which we laughed through. We got some nasty looks from the other audience members.
Timothy: Well, it was awful.
Curtis: Made a ton of money though.
Timothy: That it did. Hey folks! It’s your usual motley crew of miscreants what recorded a podcast about the dead that fear the walking, here again to ramble on for almost the same amount of time it takes to actually watch an episode of this very show we review.
Mindy: There was that 30 minute idea that was almost a recurring thing. Almost.
Curtis: There are four of us now. And based on how much Tim cut out of the podcast, we digress like… crazy digressing people.
Mindy: About 15 minutes?
Timothy: Yeah. Mostly things that Man Was Not Meant to Know.
Mindy: So most of the sex stuff.
Dustin: It was so wrong this week, people. SO VERY WRONG.
Curtis: Funny as hell, though.
Timothy: Oh yeah. But not fit for man or beast. We were quite inappropriate.
Mindy: There is a sexual undercurrent in the show though.
Dustin: Oh, this episode was all about the sex. Even when it wasn’t about the sex, it was about the sex. And that’s not entirely a good thing.
Curtis: Yeah, I really didn’t think too much of this one. It wasn’t bad, but it was a letdown after the last few. But hey, you guys listen to us talk about it, and then tell us what you think, OK? OK.
