  • #KharyPayton officially bows out of #WSCAtlanta. #JamesFrazier answers questions
  • shouting out @celtictso with the dirty dad jokes and Sharon Siope from Australia
  • Discussing the #TitleSequence(s) ... and @wtfnyssa breaking our train of thought
  • The #JohnDorie in his natural habitat... and the #SanAntonioSplit is the #OldWest equivalent of the #MagicLoogie
  • ...and the #Western theme music in key moments! and the #campy old west #tropes work!
  • The genius way they folded in #DwightTWD into John & #NaomiLauraJune's story
  • ...who, what, and where in the world is Sherry (Sandiego)...
  • ...and where do this kids fit into all of this?
  • ...what if Grace is the big bad?!
  • So many questions about these kids... and who is the big bad? the kids? ...but why?
  • #AMC has to learn to allow the audience to be surprised
  • and speaking of surprised, that last scene broke our brain
  • SQUAWKING DEAD road trip to #WildWestCity! And John is the coolest character in the TWD Universe. #sprayandpray #TWDseason8
  • practical vs special effects in FearTWD vs TWD (and a shout-out to @tarantactical & @susassin)

  • #AvengersAssemble fasle start... to pick up the kids... who play with their body parts?
  • seat belts in the apocalypse: what do you think?
  • If Dwight left just after #AllOutWar, he's been lagging/stuck long enough for #MorganJones to overtake him

  • ...and, remember, the #comicbook doesn't always jive with the show #thewalkingdead192 #HeadsOnPikes #GlennRhee #AbrahamFord #RickGrimes
  • ...that being said #RobertKirkman is a brilliant writer. #AaronTWD and shout out to @TWDMarquand

PLEASE, donate to Rachael Burt's #fundraiser for #StJudes Hospital: every #donation gets us one step closer to SHAVING HER HEAD (like #AlphaTWD)!
  • #Michonne leaving #TWDseason10 earlier than anticipated
  • Rachael is takes going full Alpha VERY seriously (see the link, above, to #donate)!
  • Looks like we were right about Dylan coming around, helping #LucianaGalvez with the radio tower
  • ...and the kids are alright! ...protecting other children.
  • @celtictso: #DanielSalazar repeats leading the herd a la #FearTWDseason1 (away rather than toward)
  • Dates on the calendar might validate the pre #RickGrimes departure theory
  • This episode is a love-letter to #RubenBlades' acting. Charlie et al sticking up for #VictorStrand
  • What's in Daniel's cookie tin?
  • Strand has changed, but not changed. Daniel & #MorganJones don't die
  • Humor galore from Sarah and Wendell. And we're more Pro-MoMo as a result.
  • #LennieJames (as well as Morgan) is a little of our reach, on a human level
  • Sarah & Wendell are converted shit-heels: masters of the #apocalypse
  • "Tamplin's Grocery" is a nod to Fear's Assistant #Stunt coordinator #JackTamplin
  • #HershelGreene: #Walkers aren't your friends, kids! #CarlGrimes #RIPCarl #RIPCarlGrimes
  • @Gotz2BLove, "Can't wait for Skidmark to meet Dog" ...and calling some trap bullshit
  • Still not on team Charlie? Missing #NickClark. #DarylDixon #GlennRhee
  • EPIC #IndianaJones and the #RaidersOfTheLostArk TIMES 100 #WalkerKILL. #Jadis #heapsters
  • It was the kids, not #TheCommonwealth, that stole our groups weapons... so what are the CRM soldiers after?
  • ...and they may be the big-bad of this season. Looks like Fear finally has some thread to the #comicbook
  • ...and making fun of their terrifying new weapon. #ApplePicking, anyone?
  • SQUAWKING about #FanFest #FFNJ and a #shoutout to @Clout_Henry & @zainap.twd.spn.ftwd.caryl #RIPHenry #HenryTWD #JusticeForHenry #HeadsOnPikes
  • Daniel's words, meant for #OfeliaSalazar, said to Charlie... #MadisonClark?! The irony of his words.
  • ...Shout out to @HJM_Edits when comparing #Negan to Charlie. #TeamNegan, sure, but why not Charlie?
  • ...and comparing #AliciaClark to Madison, in terms of effectiveness
  • Saving the Cigar... Victor? Madison?! #ABRAHAMFORD?!
  • ...and who did Daniel inherit the warehouse from? Logan? MADISON?!
  • Will Daniel return? His appearance was foretold around the beginning of #FearTWDseason4
  • What if Daniel was what The Commonwealth was after? Alphabet soup.
  • Or maybe Daniel's meeting Sherry? Discussing #DwightTWD
  • What if Madison is the ultimate big-bad?
  • ...and back to the cookie tin: Ofelia's ashes? MADISON'S ASHES?!
  • #JohnDorie & #NaomiLauraJune are helping Dwight find Sherry
  • Is #Althea in the helicopter? and #JJAbrams' frustrating #LOST #MysteryBox of questions #TED #LostSeries #LostABC
  • Dylan and #TheLittlePrince: where do you think his character goes from here?
  • ...and our growing suspicions towards Grace. Ultimately, we want some sort of #conflictresolution with the soldiers
  • Luciana & Dylan: is her guard up (because of Charlie)? Or embracing Madison's way?
  • Possible Althea backstory with the tape from The Bog in the #SneakPeek? Stepping-in too late #DaleHorvath
  • ...and is Al in trouble (next week)? and is the solider at the end of this episode Grace?
  • It's possible that one of these kids, or John & June, birth the children in the #spinoff series?
  • #LIKE, #SUBSCRIBE, ENABLE #NOTIFICATIONS, AND #COMMENT! WE'LL BE BACK, #LIVE, TO BREAK DOWN NEXT WEEK'S EPISODE OF FEAR THE WALKING DEAD AT 10 PM EASTERN/US!

[Episode 53] Season 5, Episodes 1 & 2 of FearTWD, "Here To Help" & "The Hurt That Will Happen"


We have a two-fer on our hands! covering the #SeasonPremiere & the 2nd episode!
The #FearTWDSeason5 #SeasonPremiere at #IFCCenter was AWESOME, especially the Q&A at the end. Special shout out to @celtictso & @sonnengartens for meeting me there!
PLEASE, donate to Rachael Burt's fundraister for #StJudes Hospital: every donation gets us one step closer to SHAVING HER HEAD (like #AlphaTWD)!
* That settles it, we're all shaving Rachael-Scissor-Hands' head in August (HELP US RAISE THAT MONAY!)
* #AMC throwing a ton of marketing dollars in Fear's direction
* ...no doubt it's in no small part to the large roll it will play in the overall franchise
* And with #DwightTWD's arrival in the next episode, we need to talk about the timeline
* Reopening Carol's wound: The opening theme
* Doubling-down on Fear, the discomfort in coming back to The Walking Dead
* Enter: Logan. #MattFrewer
* ...Big-bad vs Bad... Bad is far more interesting
* The idea of Jim and, again, humanization by way of movies. #JimbosBeerbos
* #DanayGarcia turns the acting up to 11, buuuuut... the show fails at making us care about #LucianaGalvez
* ...and speaking of being hamstrung, R.I.P. #MorganJones' stick
* #DanielSalazar (and #MadisonClark) possibly flying in to save the day?
* ...and #AliciaClark ironically following in Madison's footsteps. #TroyOtto #JeremiahOtto
* Are you team people or team animal in the #ZombieApocalypse? #NakedAndAfraid
* ...the idea of Dylan, Max, and Annie: where they came from and the Nuclear Meltdown as a backdrop
* ...and with Grace as a possible foil, is Sherry a part of the big-bad group? How will that affect Dwight?
* ...and speaking of Grace: maybe She & Morgan?
* The most capable characters, this season, were the most messed up, last season
* #Althea may be gone for most of the season, but ( #prediction ) is the last man standing
* #SneakPeeks: Looks like they'll be encroaching on big-bad territory... in an old west/ghost town?
* STAY TUNED FOR OUR NEXT PODCAST DIRECTLY AFTER THE NEXT EPISODE OF FEAR THE WALKING DEAD, AT 10 PM, EASTERN/US TIME!

  • But #NYCC (and #SDCC) take the cake. The culture of #ContentCreators, larger than you, lifting you up with them: #DaveSolo #BrandonDavis

  • ...and talk about Xander: when he talks, you stop to listen. And, finally, the story about him painting Dave
  • ...but as much fun as we had with cast, it really is everything to us to meet fans of the show (F/TWD, BMNY, and SQUAWKING DEAD)
  • ...and along came #PollyannaMcIntosh... another reason Why CMCB is such a singular experience
  • What really floored Dave was how many people recognized him and know about SQUAWKING DEAD podcast
