Watching the first episode and this is by far the best spin off and best episode of any walking dead since the Negan days of the OG show.

Spot on. After watching the first episode, this series looks to be very, very good.

Has there been a better character evolution than his?

Do you need to be caught up with the other series like TWD, FTWD, etc. to enjoy this or does it stand-alone? I bailed on the franchise a couple years ago shortly after they took out Carl.

Not really. I know for me watching his evolution as a character makes it more enjoyable, but I think you'll still enjoy it. There is one reference to the Commonwealth you won't understand, but so far the really is it.

I wonder if it is because there was more freedom with his character. He is a character written for the TV show that has no storyline to follow from the source material (The Walking Dead comics).

Episode 2 didn't disappoint. Great character development for the first time in forever and some glimpses of the first days of France going under. This episode also has an episode 4 feeling from the OG season.

Average episode, but some fun moments. This show feels more what the Zombie apocalypse world be like.

Homing Pigeons!

10% is Paris is powered by wind. It's realistic that they could tap into that with only a few thousand people left and have enough power. The US show was so much in the sticks, it would had been harder.

Another great episode with a giant reveal. It's looking like there might be a cure.

Also, in World Beyond, the leader of the Villians made an appearance and there was a cut scene to France at the end that let us know the virus originated there and there are major ties to this series. We might actually see an ending to it all. I was reading up and of all the new series, this one is the one they are planning a handful of seasons. The rest are limited. I wonder if they are sync back up and they do a movie to finally finish it off.

I have been waiting for the "verse" to go there for sometime. I mean, they seemed to make progress in Fear the Walking Dead's final season in that aspect. The reason being is that you could build an entire show around still battling the dead but trying to spread the cure. What happens if the virus then mutates? Still lots of ground to cover.

100%!

I know there are a few more FTWD, but I'll read the recaps. Such a crap fest! I'd love to see your vision of a new world.
