Season 1, Episode 1 – “Pilot”


Last Sunday, Misters Adair, Smith and I got together to watch the premiere of AMC’s new The Walking Dead spinoff, Fear the Walking Dead.

You know, like we do.

We’ve had to make some changes to our usual model of recapping and discussing the worlds of the Dead… since the original show wrapped its last season, Mr. Adair became a father, and his schedule and time has become a bit less his own, as all parents surely know. So we’re exploring a few different ways of bringing our fairly quirky written reviews into different mediums that might be a little easier and quicker to get to you, Dear Readers.

And so we ventured into the world of Periscope, with some mixed results. The idea here was to record our review and commentary, then get it out the next day, because hey, we have this quick and easy video option.

Yeeeaaaahhh… didn’t quite work like that.

Re-encoding, rendering, rotating, re-encoding, fighting with codecs, re-encoding, re-rendering… pfft. But we learned a lot, and here it is, our first thoughts on Fear the Walking Dead, in video form.

As always, there are spoilers here, generally inappropriate behavior for polite company, and freely distributed opinions of a questionable nature. We hope you are at least moderately entertained.
