The show is having a major turnaround in the wake of Rick's departure. Really enjoyed the last two episodes. The blizzard made things exciting and different for the finale.

The dialogue... is still atrocious at times. They don't seem to know how to have characters interact with each other in a believable way. But the show is really good right now.

I'm very intrigued where they go with the Carol/Lydia stuff. Seems like Carol is going to see herself in Lydia (the whole people telling her she's not worth anything, etc)

They mostly ruined Fear... after season three. The introduction of Morgan and the subsequent rapid removal of most of the original cast turned it into a tired retread of its parent show's later seasons. In my mind, I almost the dam-explosion episode as the end of Fear the Walking Dead proper.

So a few things about Fear... Season 3 was an absolute masterpiece. It was so unique, so well thought out. One of my favorite seasons of television, period.

Season 4 was pretty good! Not nearly as good as 3, but that's hard to do. I thought the addition of Elfman, Grace, and Dillahunt all mostly worked! As much as I like Morgan, it wasn't a great fit, but it could work over time. I thought killing off both Dickens and Dillane was a mistake. Especially Dillane.

Season 5 has been... a retread, as you said. It's watchable, but it's missing everything I loved about S3. Debnam-Carey is still a bright spot. And I do still enjoy the Elfman/Grace/Dillahunt combo. I just... bleh. The showrunners don't inspire confidence (especially with Gimple around).

If the show existed without The Walking Dead, I'd say it's a subpar zombie series. But against all the flaws of the mothership, I find myself more drawn to Fear and its characters, especially Alicia. She's probably one of the best female characters the franchise has created (which says very, very little). I hope they don't ruin her with a meaningless romantic storyline, like they do with all female characters on the main series.
