The series fails so spectacularly on the level of characterization that its occasional grace notes, mostly concerning how catastrophe changes the circuitry of family dynamics, feel accidentally stumbled upon.

The idea of capturing the zombie apocalypse as it began, from a character-driven, family drama point of view, wasn’t a bad one, but this “Walking Dead” spin-off thus far hasn’t developed a cast to keep the premise afloat

While the sin of familiarity could be forgiven if the series matched the exciting highs of its sister series, the series' lack of identity is only compounded by its lack of urgency. The only thing to fear is "Fear" itself. And by that, I mean boredom.

Until the writers figure out how to better serve Dickens and Curtis--who are reduced to passively reacting to things around them--there's a vacuum on Fear the Walking Dead that's undercutting its forward momentum, just as it has solved its lack of action issue with the zombies.

Fear the Walking Dead often feels as adrift as its characters, seeking tonal stability and a richer sense of character in the same way our crew is frantically looking for a place to call home and survivors to band together with while they’re both literally and proverbially lost at sea.

Fear the Walking Dead tells what appears to be a similar story, but it's over within an episode. Sometimes not having anybody to copy is the best thing that can happen.
