Primetime Picks… 6/2/19

Jun 02 Posted by in Features | Comments

Tonight AMC kicks off the fifth season of Fear The Walking Dead. During the fourth season we lost a couple of the original main characters, but gained some replacements along the way. As the season ended, our band of survivors consisted of Morgan, Strand, Althea, Alicia, Luciana, John, June, Wendell, Sarah, and Charlie. The group had been poisoned with antifreeze by a crazy serial killer, a filthy woman named Martha. However, apparently they just needed to drink a lot of beer to offset the poison, and they managed to find some in the nick of time. Martha ended up getting turned into a walker, and was quickly dispatched by Morgan. It looked like the newly reunited gang was all set to head from Texas to Virginia, to the Alexandria community. However, Morgan changed his plans at the last minute, wanting to stay and continue Polar Bear’s work, helping to provide supplies for lost travelers, and hopefully prevent someone else from ending up desperate and alone like Martha. The others decided to join him, and planned to start by trying to find and help some of the folks that were on Al’s tapes. So they set up shop in an old denim factory, using it as their base of operations.

As the fifth season opens, we are thrust right into the middle of the action/story. Our band of do-gooders is off on a mission to find a man named Logan, who contacted them for assistance, when things run afoul. They now find themselves in a dangerous, unfamiliar new location. Not only are there zombies to deal with, but there’s also some unknown person or group that doesn’t seem want anyone in their neighborhood, and they have put up signs and other roadblocks to keep people out—anyone having flashbacks to Negan? What is this new threat, what do they want, and should our group be concerned?

I checked out the first few episodes of the season, and it’s definitely shaping up to be another exciting one, with many twists and turns. Just in the few episodes I saw there are several new and familiar faces that show up to shake things up. And the number of threats our group is facing seems to grow exponentially with each new episode. I’m looking forward to learning more about what our survivors are really up against, and seeing what else this season holds!

In tonight’s premiere, “Here to Help”, lead by Morgan and Alicia, the group lands in uncharted territory in search of survivors to help; everything is not as it seems in this foreboding new land.

Tonight I’ll also be watching/recording Perpetual Grace, Ltd, NOS4A2, and Worst Cooks in America.

Happy! and the season premiere of The Inbetween, check out the If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/2/19 post at TVisMyPacifier.com. —>
