Having enjoyed the Walking Dead, I gave Fear the Walking dead a try.
The first issue I had with the show is my general feeling about how unlikely it would be for zombies to win against humans. Particularly worldwide. Islands would be fine. Mountain folk would be fine. People in the tundra would be fine. People in the desert would be fine. Even people in rural areas would stand a good chance due to having plenty of space and guns.
The second issue I had was “Who am I rooting for here?” My choices seemed to be a self-righteous blonde, a stupid teacher, a spoiled brat teen, a love-lorn teen, a druggie, and a few other unworthy characters. I mean…what do I care if all of them got wiped out?
Tonight was the final straw though. The show has been portraying the military as being indifferent to the life of civilians. This has increased to an outright desire to kill said civilians. This makes no logical sense, and it just an eyeball-rolling, knee-jerk anti-establishment intellectualism.
Rare for me, I will not be watching the finale to a show that I’ve been watching. I’m annoyed at their impugning the military.
Long Live the Constitution!
