The Walking Dead has enough material for two shows.
“Fear the Walking Dead” has its first season of 6 episodes land on Blu-Ray. Doesn’t it seem like ages ago when “The Walking Dead” got the same shaky commitment from AMC? Well, this Walking Dead Los Angeles Special Victims Unit is a tale of blended families. Survivors come together despite their differences to escape the Walkers. The difference being is that this show actually acts like it enjoys having zombies on the program. Weird, huh?
It’s too early to call this series an improvement over the original show, but I’m tip-toeing around it. Will it jump the shark in its second season like the original show? I’m not sure, as they’ve got Ruben Blades in the cast. Blades can elevate anything, while the original show thinks they could survive without Rooker or Bernthal. Rookie mistake, Coral. Rookie mistake!
The Blu-Ray comes with featurettes as the special features. The A/V Quality is solid for a Walking Dead release. The 1080p transfer is sharp as one would expect for a recent TV release. The Dolby True HD 5.1 is on par with the last few Walking Dead Blu releases. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase to fans.
