Talking Through USS Pennsylvania

We’re very late this time out AGAIN, but for this episode 82 of Fear the Walking Dead Talk Through, Brian and LT talk through Season 6 Episode 15 of Fear the Walking Dead, titled USS Pennsylvania, which was written by Nazrin Choudhury & Nick Bernardone and directed by Heather Cappiello.

This was was a mixed review, but not so mixed…

We were split with this episode. LT gave it a 5, while Brian gave it an 8. Neither of them thought it was the worst episode, but clearly, Brian liked it more. Listener reactions were similar to LT’s than Brian’s.

Just go? And a strange use of resources…

One thing that we all had a problem with was Morgan telling Teddy and Riley to go. That just seemed dumb for everyone. Also, it seemed weird that everyone went to the sub, but they weren’t used very well. Only Strand and Morgan go forward. Why were the rest of them there? What did they do?

    So what you’re saying is “Ugh, it’s Brian’s fault!” that darn Brian. Lol. Also I support the LT calling himself the LT. 🙂

    The LT is a funny man on this podcast. 🙂

    No the Brian, “Radioactive” is performed by the band Imagine Dragons.

    Yeah I’m with the LT, Dakota is EASILY the worst of the two! It’s not even a contest. Ginny was problematic, but Dakota is a psychopath.

    I thought it was Sarah who was tasked with reading the manuals?

    Hopes and dreams Morgan is gone the Brian, he doesn’t even have to die – just leave; but yeah I’ll believe it when I see it and he doesn’t come back ever because again Gimple loves him for some reason, more than the original cast given how much screen time he’s gotten and the position he was given since joining.

    “I don’t care. Don’t explain it to me!” – lol.

    LT supports your assertion.
