The Passage ends next week and it's been consistently good all season. They've sore of cherry-picked the best stuff from the first two books which means the only possible option for season 2 is the 100 year time jump... But, well, that might work. It'll be interesting to see how they pull it off.

So Z Nation -- set three years after the apocalypse -- is really retarded. I could never really get into the "zom-com" aspect of it (a genre that as overdone before it even started).

Z Nation was cancelled last year and Netflix gobbled up the rights, putting together the prequel series Black Summer. And...it's amazing! It's what Fear the Walking Dead should have been. Set during the apocalypse, it's more just a straight up zombie show. We follow an unrelated and scattered group of survivors all heading to the advertised sanctuary spot via several different paths. It's all quite simple, paint by numbers shit... But that's fine! It's a zombie apocalypse show! All they have to do is have scary monsters, likable and doomed survivors, and fun sets. And they do all of that without the navel-gazing of Fear or the convoluted retardation of TWD and, most importantly, without the comedy of Z Nation. 

Eight episodes, half an hour each. It flies by and is worth the watch.
