13 Things Going Through My Head While Watching The Walking Dead Companion Series
It's called Fear the Walking Dead.

The Walking Dead won't be back until October, but in the meantime, you can take a bite out of its companion series that follows a family of four in LA at the onset of the zombie apocalypse. No Rick, no Daryl, no Michonne—think all-new characters, all-new gruesome fun. Here's what we thought of the first episode of Fear the Walking Dead.

  1. We're supposed to be scared for this guy, who stumbles upon his friend feasting on a stranger, but we're so distracted by his cropped cardi. Where is your shirt??

  2. Oooh, nice opening credits.

  3. Is that girl Lexa from The 100? Yes, it is! She really likes her doom and gloom.

  4. "You need to spend less time online." HAHA.

  5. Hey, Lexa's boyfriend is Malik from Suburgatory! What would Lisa think of you kissing another girl, Malik?

  6. We don't know about you, but we would never walk into an abandoned church by our lonesome with just a flashlight, after someone says that a mass murder possibly took place there and that a flesh-eating person was involved. Have these people learned nothing from horror movies?

  7. Aww, Malik drawing on Lexa's arm. Artsy guys are the best. <3

  8. Imagine if the classrooms here were also bugged so that the principal could “evaluate” the teachers. Eep! 

  9. Lexa's brother, a.k.a. the guy with the cropped cardi, is smart to wear baggy pants. Tight pants have no place in the impending apocalypse.

  10. Lexa to Malik: "I'm here... Where are you? You better be dead!" Be careful what you wish for.

  11. "Might've been a high-speed (chase) gone bad." Or it might be zombies! Yasss, finally!

  12. "There must be an explanation." Have these people never heard of zombies? Well apparently in zombie universes, people are usually not aware of the undead until they’re up in your face. Literally. Ew, sorry.

  13. And there you go, we have the first gruesome zombie kill of the season. As with all zombie shows and movies, this begs the question: What would you do in the event of a zombie outbreak? Taking a page from our friend’s survival guide, the first thing we’d do is get our family and set up camp in a grocery. Then get all the ice to preserve the frozen goods for as long as possible. The last thing we want is to be hangry during the zombie apocalypse!

Have you seen Fear the Walking Dead? What do you think?
