    So far, the 5th one is THE WALKING DEAD’s first season without a truly standout episode. That doesn’t mean it was bad, though. Far from it. FEAR THE WALKING DEAD’s 1st season was fine. That’s saying a lot, considering that I had low expectations. I mean, we don’t need to know the origin of the virus.
