After a six episode appetizer in season one, Fear the Walking Dead returned in 2016 with 15 episodes to its sophomore season. 15 episodes to familiarize us with the characters, 15 episodes to build allegiances, and 15 episodes to turn the patchwork Manawa-Clark family into a zombie-fighting, apocalypse-surviving unit.
Confession: I love Lost. Not just the first few seasons, I love Lost seasons one through six. I love the series finale, feel no resentment towards the ending we were given, and felt thoroughly satisfied when I first experienced those emotional character reunions, that comprise the final chapter of this ambitious, crazy, innovative series.
