Bad writing, bad, very bad writing.
9 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

Very bad writing. In fact it's so bad that I can't help feeling perplexed at how in god's name the writers of this show got to be writers in the first place, let alone on such a big franchise. The characters are parodies of themselves, making decisions no one in their right mind would make, be it in a zombie apocalypse or otherwise.

These characters don't communicate with each other, don't laugh, don't reflect, don't reason, don't foresee obvious consequences etc. They are a group of selfish whining people, made even more unlikeable by the very dumb decisions the writers force upon them. They sulk, they daydream, they act as teenagers, even the adults. There is no tension in this show. You don't care whether the characters die or not.

The most interesting facet of this series was to show in detail the dawn of the apocalypse, and instead you get a family drama in the suburbs for an entire first season (later, for 5 episodes and counting, on a boat), which is itself badly written.

This show is cringe-worthy to watch, the writing is THAT bad, and I can't help wondering who the writers are and how they got to write for this show. These writers have no grasp on the psychology of men. It's quite pathetic.
