In episode one, we learn where Nick and Luciana ended up after encountering a hail of bullets last season in the failed exodus from La Colonia.

Check it out and youll get an eyeful of fun. Episode two continues the fearful reunions with almost immediate separation and for one cast member its a permanent one. Whats really going on behind the scenes of their new survivalist friends the Ottos, and will they find sanctuary with these “preppers” or simply more doom and gloom? Also we check in with Victor who was Stranded at the hotel at the end of last season. Will he become the new King of the Castle or is a Jaguar fueled exile in his future?

Will Rick and company negotiate the use of their weapons or has Rick decided, like Negan, that might makes right and better the thug you dont know instead of the one you do, or something like that. Maggie farms, Gregory is feeling inadequate and angry and Eugene is trying to get Sasha to join team Easy Street. Also, we have a very special intro to the show by King Ezekiel himself: actor Khary Payton! So remember kids, rape is bad, but having a harem of semi-forced concubines is A-Ok!

RickChonne is finding and fucking their way across the apocalypse in search of guns for the trash heap people. They even stop to enjoy a country fair along the way, but be careful of that Ferris wheel Rick and always keep a bad computer generated deer handy just in case you need to throw something to a herd of walkers. Back at Alexandria, Rosita is becoming worse with the meanness and suicide mission talk and Tara is using poor Judith as her personal therapist. Cue the Peter Gabriel music and “Say, Yes” to this John Hughesesque romantic romp for our two main heroes.

This week we swear to give you an interesting recap and review of the sixth episode of season seven of The Walking Dead. It's getting close to the mid-season finale and the show is spinning its wheels a bit, or getting washed up on a beach of Amazon Island. Scott, Mike and Brian discuss Tara's trip to the Oceanside colony where all the men are mysteriously missing and the residents have a strict (until now) shoot first and then shoot again greeting policy. Then they shoot again and then once more then they have to just capture you because they're horrible "Stormtrooper" level markswomen. But I digress. We also get a brief glimpse of mopey Heath before he goes off to his other job on a different network. It's fun in the surf and sun and no Abigail to rescue us from it on another Fear the Walking Deadcast.

Scott and Sara review the relentless final episode of the first season of Fear the Walking Dead and it's all they hoped the slow burn of five episodes would lead to. Los Angeles has fallen, the military has bugged out and all that is left for the Clarks, Salazars and Chris to do is try to rescue their loved ones. Thrill to Daniel the zombie Pied Piper, soldiers that need to learn to conserve ammo and survival tips from the mysterious and merciless Mr. Strand. Travis finally snaps, Nick realizes this is his kind of world and Chris steps up against the man to protect Alicia. This episode was so dense with action and character moments that Scott and Sara completely forgot to talk about an important main character death. We plead apocalypse trauma. Don't judge. That's a wrap on civilization folks. Remember: "The only way to survive the mad world is to embrace the madness".

In a special Mindless Drivel, Scott and Sara review episode two of Fear the Walking Dead and give their thoughts on how the story is progressing, writing issues and predictions of how this very different look at the Walking Dead TV universe will play out. Thrill to Junkie Johnny Depp puking, bitten boyfriends and Scott stressing about controversy that hasn't even happened yet (It's kind of his thing). Los Angeles is falling so come on in, the zombpocalypse is warm.

Don't forget to get your flu shots kids and join us for an amusing coffee deficient talk on the pilot episode that shows us the beginning of the end of the world, at least as far as Robert Kirkman sees it.
