Last season, 'Fear the Walking Dead' explored a blended family who watched a burning, dead city as they traversed a devastated Los Angeles. In Season 2, the group aboard the Abigail is unaware of the true breadth and depth of the apocalypse that surrounds them; they assume there is still a chance that some city, state, or nation might be unaffected some place that the Infection has not reached. But as Operation Cobalt goes into full effect, the military bombs the Southland to cleanse it of the Infected, driving the Dead toward the sea. As Madison, Travis, Daniel, and their grieving families head for ports unknown, they will discover that the water may be no safer than land.
Special Features: Audio Commentaries, Deleted Scenes, Flight 462 Webisodes, Q&A with Cast and Creative Team from Paley Fest LA 2016, Inside FEAR THE WALKING DEAD, The Making of FEAR THE WALKING DEAD

The biggest problem I'm having this season is with ***AMAZON NOT HAVING EPISODES UPLOADED BY THE NEXT MORNING.*** If I'm spending close to $40 for a season pass, of what? 10 episodes?, Amazon should get these episodes uploaded IMMEDIATELY AFTER THEY AIR.
I wish they'd address the pace of the story better. The compressed timeline seemed to serve no purpose than to make character evolution harder to buy into. A lot of the plot and seemingly abrupt shifts in character would make more sense if they had weeks between events rather than days or even hours in many cases. It seems like a detail they just lost track of when it could have been a great tool. That said things are set up well for S3 if they take what worked from S2 and had more fun with it going forward. 3.5 out of 5 stars.
- Had to mash around the menu a bit. It's 2016. Why does this keep happening?
- Deleted scenes had a lot of character moments. Particularly Madison who could have used more signs of humanity. Interesting to see that's what they cut.
- PaleyFest was a great addition. A lot of genuinely nice people work on this show.
- The commentary is only for the first half of the season. Bummer. Colman Domingo's inclusion is a standout. No commentary from Alycia Debnam-Carey this time. Odd miss since she was a delight on the S1 Blu-ray.
I continue to watch FWD, but I'm not being engaged philosophically, even though the writers are trying to do that. First, we come upon a compound where the local people actually believe the cult-like housekeeper's idea that the dead are the next phase in God's plan. OK, maybe we happened to get some really uneducated simpletons.
But then Nick finds more. Same thing here with the pharmacists believing since he didn't die, it was a miracle of some sort. Look, this guy is a pharmacist, educated in the sciences, and thus it is just to much of a leap to think he would not know about immunities and antibodies. He could be the the cure for the entire epidemic. But no one even brings that up.
One has to ask, what are the writers trying to do here when they start a dialogue about evidence vs belief, and then never ask the basic questions therein? Nick does say, "How do you know?" The answer from the pharmacist is "Faith" or a circular argument restating that he is correct. Then, no followup. Why bring it up if you aren't going to investigate it, even in a simplistic way? E.g., Whenever anyone states they know something, the next question is "Why?" Nick does ask that question, asking "How he knows?" If that doesn't produce any valid reasons for a belief, the next step is to explain that subjective beliefs cannot and do not create objective truth. Simplistically, that's epistemology 101 in a nut shell, or the start of the scientific method: you don't believe something unless you have evidence.
Another thing that the writers always have Nick doing is being so selfish that he nearly gets him or others killed, like stealing candy from the water gang. I guess this goes back to his drug addiction and heroin, showing that addicts are selfish? In this case, Nick is so self indulged he threatens everyone around him, even when he hasn't done any drugs in weeks. But he keeps doing really idiotic things like that, and at the same time, is supposed to be more of a hero than antihero?
It's a confused story line. I know what the writers are doing. They want to show even heroin addicts can do the right thing, or are people, just like the rest of us. But this isn't sociology 101. Nick is a weak hero archetype, and his cleverness amounts to deception and selfishness, and just bad choices. Consider Nick steals the candy, and is about to get his hand cut off by the gang member. He goes into this diatribe about them needing drugs and they are the only ones providing it. So, they should give them twice as much, or they won't deal with them anymore.
The problem is that the argument works before they even go into the store, and he doesn't need to be a scum-sack to make it work. So the entire episode is based on Nick stealing. Are we suppose to believe that stealing and endangering others is a valid way to conduct one's life, that that behavior is "ok" because it can lead to great things? You could argue that NIck stole the candy to give to the little girl, so compassion was the end result of bad decisions. So making bad decisions is ok? Again, I'm having a REALLY hard time buying that. It's almost like the writers want us to believe being a scum-sack leads to great things. Again, I'm not buying that.
It's hard to follow what point the writers are trying to make. Nick, a recovering heroin addict gained skills others don't have by being a heroin addict, which leads him to a heroic place in the story line, gaining his own apartment even. Are we to believe that being a full-time heroin addict is a good way to gain the necessary skills to survive? Look, continued bad choices never lead to glorious and positive outcomes, ever. Just ask those who continue to make them, like heroin addicts. I've known many, and of all of them I have known, none gain skills to live productive lives be being addicted to heroin. Again, this is just too large a leap to swallow: From full time heroin addict to hero, based on skills learned being a heroin addict--like how to cut heroin and make pills? Sure. That's realistic, in a delusional way.
I might just be reading too much into it, but that is how I see it so far. I really like this spin off.
If you watch this with expectations set by the original series, you will most likely find it dull and boring. However, if you watch it with a "fresh" set of eyes, you will find that it does quite well at what it aims to do.
