ZRC Review – Fear the Walking Dead Season 2, Episode 1

This television season, the ZRC is going to do short, episode-by-episode recaps of various Zombie and Zombie-related shows in order to provide the larger Zombie Rights Movement with a response to endemic Living Supremacist media.

Here we go!

—————

When last we left the ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ Living cast, they had just settled in to a lavish seaside mansion with the sort of ocean view one normally has to commit serious financial services crime to afford.

Someone in LA seems to have left the gas on, though. So the gang feels it’s time to go.

FEAR 2X1 LA BURNS

Can’t say I blame them on that one. Looks toasty.

And then the local Undead Community shows up and our ‘heroes’ get unpleasant.

FEAR 2X1 BALCONY BEACH

Something many people do not know, but that your ZRC President learned in law school, is that California has a legal regime in place whereby the public has broad rights to access the beachfront, even across privately owned land in many circumstances. Those rights long went poorly enforced, but a recent change to the law is finally ensuring that the public has the right to get to the beach. Huzzah!

So these Zombies have every right to go down to the waterfront, most likely. Certainly if they come up the coast.

But try explaining that to our entitled, lawbreaking Living cast.

FEAR 2X1 BEACH ACCESS

Who sadly resort to violence to stifle our Undead allies’ rights under California law.

For shame! I am not a member of the California bar, but I would strongly suggest that any Zombies facing such a situation seek qualified local legal counsel or report it to the state authorities. They probably have a case!

But thwarting lawful beach access is only the start of the cast’s bad behavior, naturally. Our alleged protagonists take to the sea on Mysterious Strand’s shiny, largely automated yacht, the Abigail.

In the parlance of our times, it is very 1%.

They quickly find opportunities not to help others stranded at sea, which is just bad manners. Could also be a violation of maritime law, but I’m hardly an expert in that area.

FEAR 2X1 OTHER BOAT

Alicia meanwhile throws the whole ‘avoiding other people to save our own skin’ plan out a window, or porthole if you like, by blabbing all sorts of details about their swanky seagoing palace over a radio.

And the episode ends with a bit of light looting/piracy for good measure, as Nick steals from a boat currently operated by Zombies.

FEAR 2X1 THEFT

Shocking. An episode rife with illegality and Anti-Zombie prejudice. It bodes very poorly for the next season.
