I am!  Last season got me back in the game for Fear and I'm looking forward to what comes next.

Love the Morgan and Althea characters and especially John Dory.  Hard to not like a guy with a cowboy had and twin six shooters!

Yes I thought last season was a significant step up from the previous ones.  Really looking forward to it.

Right now there are no spoilers, since the season is not out, but I added spoilers to the title so that we cna use this thread in June when the season begins.

I was able to meet and interview the cast of Fear at WonderCon. So exciting!

I know I might be in the minority here, but I really hate what the new showrunners did to Fear. I was glad it was set in a different time compared to TWD. I really thought they left the show at a great point at the end of season 3. There were so many possibilities to go further into Mexico, head North with the Native Americans, or just go elsewhere.

Instead AMC abandoned the entire concept of the show (how it wasn’t TWD) and made the decision to have a time jump in order to bring it into the same timeline as TWD. Then because their writers cannot write a linear script to save their lives, they told the entire first half of the season backwards and with flashbacks.

I realize Frank Dillane (Nick) asked to be written out of the show because he wanted to go back to the UK, but his character deserved a way better sendoff.

By the third episode I figured they had killed off Madison. I wanted to give the show, the characters, and actors I’d come to love a chance. I knew as soon as the Vultures (or the West Coast version of the Saviors -0.2) showed up it was going to be a real train wreck.

Strand and Alicia carried the entire season, while flashbacks of Nick and Madison struggled to string viewers along.


With all of this said, I enjoyed the edition of John Dory, Morgan, and Al to the cast. Everything else in the season was just horrible writing and special effects. The duality of June/Naomi was so poorly written in my opinion I’m at a loss why she made it to the end of the season.

Kim Dickens (Madison) deserved a better on screen death, if in fact she is truly done with the show and not just taking a break while working on Deadwood and other projects. The fans that watched the first three seasons deserved better than some psycho bag lady terrorizing Morgan.

I don't dispute some of your points, Stadiumarcadia, but I want to point out that Fear is once again at a different timeline from TWD, as it is NOT making the 6-8 year jump that the main series did this season. I believe the only reason for the time jump in Fear was the bring over Morgan and Dwight.

I didn't even realize the season started.  I was just surfing for something to watch.  I started watching EP 1 of this season and realized that I hadn't seen a lot of the stuff in the what happened previously montage.  I thought I had watched all of S4 but it turns I only watched about half of it.  I didn't watch anything after the mid season break.  Watching it now.
