FTWD Season 3, episode 1 Review - “Eye of the Beholder”
I did not realize how much I truly missed Fear the Walking Dead until last night. When it finally returned to my screen. I oddly missed seeing zombies get killed and/or turned. Plus, this show provides me with a weekly dose of Alycia Debnam-Carey blessing the screen. Come on, just admit it to yourself she’s the best part of the show. Especially with her characters development and her character Alicia becoming more bad ass.
Review in 3…2…1… beware the walking dead are leaving a trail of spoilers behind
I thoroughly loved the first two episodes. Just by this episode alone, we can tell this season is diving deeper into the zombie apocalypse and will have to face more trials and tribulations.
I know, I know above I basically said I watch this show for Alycia but boy am I loving kim dickens/madison already this season. Her mindset is now what it needs to be during this apocalypse. That she will do anything to save her family and we see that in this episode.
Madison being a distraction and shoving an object in the new character Troy’s eye and using him as bait for freedom. Like go badass mama clark. And then in that same scene where alicia and madison are trying to escape the room. alicia finally pulls out her butterfly knife.
and I am so glad to see luciana is alive but injured.
also, that at one point they were all finally reunited again and it felt so good. but unfortunately, that was short-lived because the compound the group who captured them was overcome with hoards of zombies. so, once more, the family had to be seperated.
like this episode was so good like ugh. I was like how could the second episode get better. boy was I wrong.
P.S. if you don’t watch fear the walking dead you should. I honestly feel like it’s way better than the walking dead (I do indeed watch both). It’s just the difference in dynamics between the shows and I feel like there is a more genuine connection between everyone…
Shows like ‘Queen Sugar,’ 'Greenleaf,’ 'Underground,’ 'Roots,’
'Insecure,’ 'Atlanta’ and 'Luke Cage’ are exposing how much talent is
A few isolated Twitter accusations that Marvel’s Luke Cage is racist for
its lack of well-rounded white characters are the stuff of clickbait
articles that I want no part of.
Complaining that one or two
(or even five or 10) current shows have become the inversion of the sort
of racially imbalanced casting that Hollywood has relied on for over a
hundred years on the big screen and for six or seven decades on TV is
sadly hilarious and also taking exactly the wrong lessons from a trend
I’ve been happily noticing over recent months. Rather than giving those
few Twitter whiners a lecture on hegemony, I want to accentuate the
After years of struggles to find even a few actors of color to play
leads or even token roles, casting directors have suddenly been able to
fill whole, multi-tiered casts with African-American actors, almost as
if when the parts are created and suddenly became available, there
turned out to be actors capable of filling them. Crazy, right? And it’s
been practically one new show or miniseries every few weeks, so it’s not
like the same 15 actors are popping up in everything. In fact, there’s
almost no overlap at all, either among the actors or the casting
directors bringing them together.
In some cases, it’s entirely unknown actors getting their first shots at regular TV work. In other cases, it’s veteran character actors reveling in the most substantive ongoing work of their careers. Sometimes the actors have been brought over from across the pond, but mostly they’re being found in our own domestic production backyards, the places you tend to find actors who want to work.
We/I write so much about struggles and failures of inclusivity in TV casting that I wanted to write something in praise of the stars and casting directors on such TV vehicles as:
Roots — None of its individual stars were nominated for Emmys, which says more about the depth of the limited series/miniseries category than anything else, but the casting team (led by Victoria Thomas, Leo Davis and Lissy Holm) got a well-earned Emmy. Whether they’re new discoveries or just under-recognized actors getting a big and visible platform, performers like Malachi Kirby, Emayatzy Corinealdi, Emyri Crutchfield, Regé-Jean Page, Michael James Shaw and many more should get a huge career boost from their Roots work.
Underground — WGN America’s antebellum series is all historical, so it may have scared away big audiences, but what if I tell you that it’s just a great action series that happens to use the Underground Railroad as a backdrop? Giving Aldis Hodge and Jurnee Smollett-Bell, who look and act like they ought to be A-listers but “somehow” aren’t, the kind of lead roles they’ve long deserved is one of the show’s big achievements, but all additional exposure for actors like Johnny Ray Gill, Alano Miller, Chris Chalk, Amirah Vann and more is a plus, so kudos to casting directors Kim Coleman, Eric Dawson, Carol Kritzer and Robert J. Ulrich.
Greenleaf — OWN’s summer sleeper hit got a boost from a recurring turn from Oprah Winfrey, but the show should be hailed for giving Keith David and Lynn Whitfield some of the best material of their careers as well as a supporting cast of less familiar actors culled by casting directors Craig Fincannon, Lisa Mae Fincannon and Kim Coleman.
Queen Sugar — Hail director and creator Ava DuVernay and also casting director Aisha Coley, because this OWN drama should provide breakouts for the likes of Dawn-Lyen Gardner, Dondre Whitfield and particularly Kofi Siriboe, as well as the myriad writers and directors given opportunities to shine here.
Ok, ok, ok. Every one needs to shut the fuck about Frank Dillane and his fight. You guys have no idea why he was there or what were the reasons that he was so worked up. i’m see all of his “fans” saying that all of his fame has gone to his head or that he was on drugs. Honestly just shut fuck up. we’re not even sure if this actually happened and the only thing that we really have to account for is a security guard saying that Frank punched first. for all we know it could of been the other way around. AND ON TOP OF THAT, we haven’t heard Franks side so everyone should simmer down until he tells us whats going on. and if he dosen’t tell us what going on thats ok too because thats his choice and we have to respect his privacy.
