Not a Dog's Breakfast.
24 May 2018 | by southdavidSee all my reviews

Episode Three of Fear The Walking Dead starts with our extended family split into two locations, but each facing a different threat. At the barbers, Travis and his family are holed up inside the Salazar barber shop, whilst the random violence of the riots take hold outside the shutters. Meanwhile, in the suburbs Madison and her kids await Travis' return and come under assault from the neighbour, who turned into a walker in the last episode.

Another pretty good episode. The gore factor, that some had complained about in previous episodes, takes a big step up as we see the effects of a rifle blast to the face. The scale of the disaster also increases as we see the effects of an overrun hospital and the blackouts across the whole of Los Angeles. It's a lot of fun to see those scenes of what we missed with the way "The Walking Dead" started. It also increases the human intrigue, as various characters are at different points of understanding what is going on, and only Daniel Salazar seems to really appreciate that there is no cure and that help is unlikely - and people are going to have to going to have to start to look out for themselves pretty soon, or be "the first to die". The ending to the episode is not something you see coming and though we know it's going to be a false dawn, it does also give us another angle on the pandemic that we have only heard about in the shows big brother.

It had some odd moments, I didn't buy the angles or the distance, with the scenes crossing into the neighbour's yard and then looking back at their house to see the walker entering and I'm not really sure why the neighbour has built what is essentially a maze in the back of their garden, but it certainly was useful for the tension on a couple of occasions.

A solid continuation to what has been a decent first half of the series.
