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

Fear the Walking Dead had a dubious start to its second season, with ample Zombie Rights issues, as previously dissected on the ZRC blog here. But perhaps after the premiere things could improve for the Differently Animated?

And that leads to a gun-toting standoff finale, replete with recriminations and hopelessness instead of tolerance and growth as a society, because, well, it’s Walking Dead.

Sigh. Maybe next week?
