A heroic group of teens sheltered from the dangers of the post-apocalyptic world receive a message that inspires them to leave the safety of the only home they have ever known and embark on a cross-country journey to find the one man who can possibly save the world. The Walking Dead World Beyond is not that good series to watch.
An apocalypse strikes so 4 young kids decide to leave their relatively safe haven to trek across the country(on foot) to find their father. They want to “rescue him” from an organization far more sophisticated and powerful then they are. Story of The Walking Dead World Beyond is quite boring.
They have no plan on how to find him, or what to do if they actually find him. Totally unbelievable story, and, characters. The writing is horrible also. The Zombies , in this show are called “empties”. Why make up a new name? Is the term zombie copy write? We are now all going through an actual pandemic.
Are we making up special names for the people infected? No, we simply say they are “infected ” or “tested positive” for the virus. The Walking Dead World Beyond is a bad choice for the producers of The Walking Dead.
The Walking Dead World Beyond is simply unrealistic, in any context. Remember in the original The Walking Dead, every other week they would write off a major character. Many of which were good characters and it was sad to see them go. I was hoping that tradition would carry over to this show. Losing 50% of the original cast would be an improvement and make room for an expanded plot development.
So far that hasn’t happened. The same cast just plods along every week portraying their shallow boring characters.. I never watched this show live, I DVR it. This way I can fast forward through the lengthy commercials. The past few episodes I’ve also fast forwarded through parts of the show, when the storyline starts centering on one of the boring characters. The Walking Dead World Beyond is not a must watch show.
I have a hard time assessing this from the lens of a teen. Being… well… somewhat past my teenage years, I can’t presume to speak for the predominant mindset and culture of that demographic. I can only speak for myself… and I will.
To me, this show was seriously lacking in depth, complexity, intelligence, sensibility — even redeemable action or superficial excitement (or fun). Not only is the plot centered around a bunch of teens, but they seem to think like teens, and make stupid typical teen mistakes. The problem is, in TWD universe — they’d be DEAD. There was nothing uncanny about them, their skills, or their situation which made it seem plausible.
Now, I’ve seen show aimed at teens or kids, which I truly enjoyed. Either they were more deeply layered, or had fun/excitement/action, or were just plain funny enough, to be enjoyable. I don’t see those redeeming complexities, here.
I actually wanted to enjoy this. I gave it a shot, but I just can’t. Some shows, I might say “it’s not for me, but give it a shot, maybe it’s more your cup of tea.” But not this one. Unless, of course, you are in that youthful demographic. Maybe the perception of the modern young person is different enough to like this. After all, someone makes Kardashians and other reality shows popular. But if you’re at all like me, you’ll wish you’d just passed it by.
I can’t imagine with The Walking Dead running out of steam and Fear The Walking Dead never really gaining it, that anyone was waiting for Nickelodeon Does The Zombie Apocalypse. Did Robert Kirkman lose a bet or something?
The acting’s bad, the dialogue is boring, and you wouldn’t even know it was set in The Walking Dead universe if they didn’t occasionally show those weird shots of zombies with cartoony outlines. Even the wigs are terrible.
The fact they call the zombies ’empties’ is kind of fitting. It’s how I’d describe the show as a whole.
Against better judgement I watched the second episode. It really is an unhinged mess. At least there were more zombies this time.
You should not watch The Walking Dead World Beyond if you were a great fan of The Walking Dead. It’s not for you. Review of this show on IMDB is so bad.
