Talking Through All I See Is Red and Dead City Old Acquaintances!

For this episode 105 of Fear the Walking Dead Talk Through, Kyle, LT, and Brian talk through the mid-season finale, Season 8 Episode 6 of Fear the Walking Dead titled All I See Is Red, written by Andrew Chambliss & Ian Goldberg and directed by Michael E. Satrazemis. They also discuss the premiere of The Walking Dead: Dead City, Season 1, Episode 1, titled Old Acquaintances. Fear’s episode description: Morgan fights his past as he and Madison race to stop PADRE expansion.

Little Mo faces death straight in the face and fails.

Hey Survivors! Wow, did we get some walking dead action last Sunday. Fear finally wrapped up PADRE baby snatching ways and sent it off with some much-needed deaths; Mogan relapsed into his ‘Clear’ ways, but with some help from Madison and little Mo was able to recover and looks like he is on to new and better things with little Mo in tow. Madison is taking the show’s reins for the back half, and while some have speculated that Troy Otto is returning, LT has another idea, and I think we agree with his speculation. But we will have to see when Fear returns this fall.

Now, on to something bigger and badder. The Walking Dead: Dead City premiered, and did it bring some of the O’Walking Days of yor to our television screens. There were some questions about what was going on with the Marshall on one end, The Croat on the other, and Maggie and Negan in the middle. What is the connection, if any, between the Marshall and the Croat? Is he just the big main baddie or the Marshall? Why does he have little… well, now much older Herschel. Anyway, there are many questions, and I hope we get some decent answers. The atmosphere of Manhattan was stellar, and many fun, creepy tense moments have been a long time coming. So we are looking forward to the next 5 episodes and a fun ride.

Some good news: Brian could finally join us on the podcast. He only has seen episode 1 of Season 8 Fear, but if he is able to catch up we will hear his thoughts. But in the meantime, he should be able to join us while we cover Dead City, and so happy he can join us. We’ve miss you, Brian. 

So enjoy as Kyle, LT, and Brian discuss this double feature episode of Fear the Walking Dead, Mid-Season Finale of Season 8, Episode 6, ALL I SEE IS RED, and the premiere of The Walking Dead:Dead City, Season 1, Episode 1, Old Acquaintance.

We want to start offering Patrons a real reason to stay on our Patreon and to get more people to become Patrons. As such, we are going to start experimenting with bringing you some new content that will really make it worth your while to be subscribed.

We are going to try offering Patrons early access to our regular episodes. These versions of the episodes will be less polished than the final version of the podcast, will largely be uncensored, may contain things we fix up in the final version (like when we speak over each other, awkward silences, etc.), and content that we remove from the final version and may not have all of the sound effects mixed in properly (and in the case of this episode, doesn’t have the beginning and ending music mixed in at all).

To do this, we edited a different version of the podcast where we’re all on one single track and only edited major things. Aside from that, the process is similar to how we’ve been doing it. We think, at least from an editing perspective, this was a major success. In fact, this process may influence how we edit the main version of the podcast going forward.
