Hate Watching Time Again

It’s 9:07 on Sunday night. The worst show on television kicked off its mid season finale seven minutes ago.

Fear the Walking Dead. It’s just so… dumb. It’s like it was written by an illiterate six year old.

It’s so dumb.

So Unbelievably Terrible

I just can’t. I can’t put it into words. Tonight’s episode of Fear the Walking Dead is so bad. It’s just… sooo bad. Every episode this season has ranged between horrible and stupid. Unwatchable and ridiculous. Tonight’s episode has to be the worst of them all. I didn’t think they could do worse than the crying baby episode, but this one just blows the crying baby episode out of the water. Granted, there was a lot of crying baby in tonight’s cold open, but it actually went down from there.

Oh my god this is terrible!

Fear the Cold Open

I said I was going to push the Walking Dead spin offs until tomorrow, but my ears are fried and I won’t be able to get any mixes done tonight.

So it’s zombie time.

I just watched the cold open of Fear the Walking Dead. If it could have just been a tiny bit worse than the idiotic awfulness that it was then it would have been funny.

It definitely wasn’t funny. It was just awful. Like…. So awful.

Monday Monday

It’s Monday. November 15th. We’re halfway through November, which means we’re careening toward December and the holidays and winter and blah.

I had another bad night’s sleep last night. Less than six hours, and only about 60% in deep sleep. Blah. I feel like I am in a stage where I need to have a couple of bad nights before I have a good night. The night before last was good. So that means maybe Tuesday night should be okay?

The kids come home for Thanksgiving on Friday. Have I mentioned that? I think I might have.

The Bruins came back and won last night. There is nothing in hockey worse than losing to Montreal, so nightmare averted, babie. The Bruins have played the fewest games in the league, and now they are off until Saturday. Who is the add wizard who came up with this schedule?

Fear the Walking Dead last night was better than the week before but it was still laughably awful. It’s like driving past a car wreck now. I can’t look away, even though I really want to. I never considered myself a masochist before, but here we are. Granted, there were all those years of watching bad movies that were so bad they were funny. Fear doesn’t fall into that category yet. It’s just plain bad.

Okay. Time to go to work now. Have a happy Monday, everyone. Hang in there, Friday is only five measly little days away.

The Shittiest of Shit Writing

Fear the Walking Dead is just so bad. I don’t want to give examples that would spoil the show for some poor masochist trying to self torture but…

What the fuck? How? How can writing this bad make it all the way to the screen? Why aren’t the show running moron twins putting a stop to this before it gets out of the writers room? Why isn’t the network putting a stop to it before it leaves the editing room?

Good lord how is this level of shit even possible? It’s like they are fucking with us and just trying to see how bad they can get. Really. What the fuck???

Fear is Terrible

Spoilers. Not really story spoilers but still spoilers.

Like a schmuck I did it again. I kicked off Sunday’s Fear the Walking Dead again. I only got four minutes in last time and it was awful. I’m 15 minutes in and it’s worse.

My favorite part is the claim that a fucking Ford Pinto in safe from nuclear radiation. Really. They said that. Also, within the blast zone of a nuclear bomb the roads are still clear and passable. Also, they stripped the car of everything that it doesn’t need in order to make it lighter and faster but they left the cassette deck.

What the fuck, writers?

Also, the worst show in history has a nearly constant screaming baby. Our entire existence as human beings is programmed to not be able to stand the sound of a crying baby and the worst show on television fills the first quarter of the episode with a crying baby. It’s like they are fucking with us on purpose now. They are actively trying to make us hate the show now.

How Do You Spell Masochist?

Self torture, thy name is Robert.

Fudge.

I just watched last night’s episode of Walking Dead World Beyond. My spoiler free review of the episode? Meh. Just like all of the World Beyond episodes. It’s not terrible, it’s just dull.

That’s it, right? End of post, right?

I am a moron at heart so no, that’s not it. Four minutes ago I started last night’s episode of Fear the Walking Dead. It’s already one of the dumbest things I ever watched. In the previously on recap we watched two characters out-run a nuclear bomb blast. No, seriously. That happened. They out ran a nuclear explosion. Seeing that on the recap ties this episode for the dumbest episode in television history. It’s tied with the episode the scene originally came from.

Last night when 9:00pm came along I told myself I was done. Completeness be damned, I was not going to watch that idiotic, terrible, horrible, no good show again (unless I go back and rewatch season one through three, especially three which was friggin brilliant)… and now here I am watching the new episode.

Friggin idiot.

ADDENUM: Saved by the unconscionably shitty AMC app. I started watching on my laptop. It worked fine. After the last post I thought I’d get into bed and watch the rest on my iPad using the AMC app. Last nights episode is only available if you’re logged in. I refuse to create an AMC account so that’s out. I then tried to watch in a browser. It won’t load the episode. Fuck. You.

Should I Watch or Not?

The season premier of Fear the Walking Dead starts in less than an hour. Before the start of the last season I told myself I was done and I wasn’t going to watch any more of that garbage show anymore. Then I watched the whole damn thing.

Now the moment of truth is just about on us. When the new season starts, 50 minutes from now, do I watch or not? The cliff hanger at the end of the last season was dumb. I mean… the writing… the story… it was dumb. I could add more colorful adjectives to the description but when you boil it down to its main parts, the show is just dumb. Why would I subject myself to more of that?

Completeness? Is that why I keep watching? Some sense of I was there when this started and I need to see it through? If that’s it, then it’s resulted in the television equivalent of friggin’ torture over the last two season.

I am probably going to keep watching. I think it might be like driving past a car accident now. I just rubber neck out the window at the wrecked zombie show to see just how awful it could be. I generally feel sorry for the cast. Most of them I would watch in literally any other show, but they are stuck in this professional dumpster fire with nothing to do but be jealous of the folks who drive by without getting trapped.

Yeah, I am probably going to watch. What the fuck is wrong with me?

Why Do I Still Care?

Fear the Walking Dead is on right now. Like, as in on actual live television.

I’m at my parents’ house tonight and I learned the hard way that the Verizon Fios app only streams live television when you’re on your account’s wifi network. Well that blows. The app wouldn’t work on my iPad, and the website wouldn’t work on my MacBook.

So I am watching it on my parents’ cable. Like, on an actual television rather than a computer pretending to be a television. It also means that starting about 8:51 I jumped through a ton of hoops in order to watch tonight’s episode. The real question I should be asking is why? Because… this show sucks.

Season three was pretty much perfect. Then they changed show runners. Season four was good to start with, but the second half was pretty bad. Season five was awful. Like, terrible. Like what the hell is going on here level rotten. The current season, season six, has been better but it’s still not even close to good.

Tonight’s episode, the third episode of season 6B which is probably supposed to be the second episode if not for Covid, started out with a call back to one of the dumbest things they did in the unwatchable fifth season. It’s just plain terrible… and I’m still watching.

Every week, I’m watching this idiotic insult to good writing.

Why?

What the hell is wrong with me? I could be binge watching Community on Netflix right now. I could be rewatching The Mandalorian. Hell, I could be binge re-watching all 10 seasons of The Walking Dead proper but I’m not. I’m watching this shit. I ask again, what the hell is wrong with me?
