Season Premier last night. First 5 minutes were great and had me thinking this show was coming back with some authority. Nope. The whole rest of the episode was unbelievably boring for a season premier. So much potential wasted. The radio would have been a great and inexpensive way to add tension and horror throughout the episode, but we get a less than 30 second snippet of people pleading for help, then it's just used as a setup for the honeypot pirates, aka Terminus on the sea.
This show has everything it needs to make a very interesting season. The mix of people on the yacht, the yacht itself (making the survivors much more mobile than those in the first season of TWD), the unknown factors of what is happening on shore, the coastal towns and cities the could attempt to land at, the possibility of islands being untouched by "the infection", and the relative safety from walkers while on the water contrasted with the heightened danger from other survivors while on the water. It could be a season of tense action, mystery and drama. I hope the show can live up to it, 'cause so far this episode was pretty disappointing.
