GEEK OUT! ENDINGS AND BEGINNINGS

The new TV season is upon us geeks – even as Fear The Walking Dead and The Strain end their respective storylines for the time being (both will definitely be back), The Leftovers returns.

FearTWD 106

Considering how popular The Walking Dead is, it’s no surprise that this spin-off did well in terms of viewership. Fear the Walking Dead was a disappointment though and never got near to the intensity, drama and characterisation that its parent series managed in its powerful debut season (which was also only six episodes).

The Strain 213

The Strain‘s second season was rather mixed.¬†Plotlines were left dangling, women characters were killed off & still we are nowhere closer to resolving key issues.

The Leftovers 201

Now, I enjoyed the polarising quasi-religious HBO series The Leftovers and am glad to report that Season 2 is off to a great start by introducing a new town and a new family into the storyline before more familiar faces turn up. As usual, all the weird elements remain intact Рgoat sacrifice in a diner, anyone? Рwith ominous undertones bubbling under the surface wonderfully.
