The Walking Dead: World Beyond - Season 1 Quick Review

Image

The Walking Dead: World Beyond is the latest installment in the successful The Walking Dead franchise. (I previously reviewed the Blu-ray releases of The Walking Dead - Season 9 and Fear The Walking Dead - Season 4.) Although it premiered back in October 2020, I finally got a chance to watch the episodes on my DVR.

The series, set in Nebraska ten years after the zombie apocalypse, features four teenage protagonists and focuses on "the first generation to come-of-age in the apocalypse as we know it. Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. In the end, all of them will be changed forever. Grown-up and cemented in their identities, both good and bad." The series is scheduled to only air for two seasons. No more, no less. Well, here's my quick review of why that seems to be two seasons too many...

Little Judith Puts These Teens To Shame

I struggled just to finish the first two episodes of "The CW presents The Walking Dead" and that's it. I'm done with this. Fear The Walking Dead at least got me for a season and a half before I checked out of it, only to come back when they rebooted it in Season 4. This one won't be so lucky, especially since it's only going to last two seasons. These teens, supposedly, grew up in the zombie apocalypse, yet act like they know nothing about it. Little Judith Grimes from the parent series is ten years younger than them and does a better job of dealing with the zombies. There are other issues with the series, as well, including bad acting and an unnecessary traumatic gay backstory that (at least in the first two episodes) has no bearing on the proceedings and seems to have only been included for the sake of checking off a box on a list.  I'd write a more detailed review, but honestly, I've given this series as much of my time as I feel like giving it.

I reviewed several of Neca's themed blind bags in the past. After what happened the last time - buying two Pop Culture bags that were EXACTLY the same - I soured on them and was on the verge of never buying them again. Well, I bought four more bags from Target the other day - two Pop Culture and two Sci-Fi & Horror - and I don't think I will be buying any more. Read on to find out why...
