Fear the Walking Dead vs. The Walking Dead

This may very well be the best season of Fear the Walking Dead yet. In fact, fans are loving this season so much that many think the series might now be equal to or rivaling The Walking Dead. Which series do you think is better, if you had to choose between Fear the Walking Dead vs. The Walking Dead? In Season 1, fans were really disappointed with FTWD, but as the seasons have progressed, the show has gotten better and better.

First, read some fans’ opinions and find out why their views on the show is changing below. Then take our poll at the end of this article and share it with your friends. 

On a Reddit thread for FTWD, one viewer shared a post with the headline: “Fear the Walking Dead has become everything we want Walking Dead to be.” Redditor _A_Day_In_The_Life_ said this was because FTWD doesn’t have the same cliffhangers and offers two-hour finales. Also with FTWD, another viewer added, you have no idea what’s going to happen, giving the writers a lot of freedom. And at times, it seems like characters on Fear travel a lot more rather than staying in one location, and the pace is a lot faster.

However, not everyone agrees. Redditor dchrisd pointed out that TWD has a better cast and Rick is a much better lead than Madison, in his opinion. Another viewer said that they believe TWD has more action than FTWD, in general. But viewers disagree on which show has more character development and complexity. Carol, for example, has grown and changed tremendously over the seasons of TWD. But Nick has also grown, and Daniel Salazar is an incredibly complex character.

Deciding between the two shows is a tough choice. As you can see, arguments can be made for both sides. So what do you think? Let us know in the poll.

Now that you’ve taken the poll, let us know any additional thoughts about the shows in the comments below.
