Los Angeles Times:
In a sense, it feels likes Fear is mashing four or five different shows together.

The biggest problem this show faces: repetition.
Credibility aside, the slow disintegration plays out in satisfyingly tense if formulaic fashion. One challenge for “The Walking Dead” has been generating drama without the usual TV devices — phone calls, traffic, hospital visits, police stops. “Fear” has access to all these things and doesn’t hesitate to use them.
While some may find it too slow in some ways, from what I’ve seen, the measured step-by-step approach instituted by showrunner Dave Erickson and his fellow EPs reflects a terrifying future being born – and I don’t just mean all those too easily mocked Sunset Junction hipsters. With variations of wealth and status, Fear isn’t about those best poised to make it through the worst but those who are scrambling to figure out what is going on — let alone what to do about it as Hell on Earth emerges.
Fear the Walking Dead brings a welcome shift in location, tone, and characters. Like Telltale's The Walking Dead video games, it's able to present us with an whole new cast of characters while demonstrating that it's really the zombified world that that's the star of the show and all that you really need for there to be a spinoff.
Since Fear The Walking Dead isn’t featuring any pre-end-times people or places from the other show, it’s missing a sense of irony that might’ve made its early scenes more meaningful. Plus, most of The Walking Dead’s best characters connected immediately because they were already battle-tested. It takes a lot more faith in the show’s creators to watch heroes who haven’t done anything heroic yet.
Fear the Walking Dead could have something to say, but it's not equipped or willing to do so. In episode two, the panic starts to spread, and seemingly more people are becoming aware of the growing zombie danger. The police shoot and kill a homeless zombie — and this sets off a huge anti-police-brutality rally. Is the show really making a Zombie Lives Matter parallel? Oy. FTWD seems to have seized on the imagery of the current American condition without actually responding to the ideas. That refusal to be about anything is an issue on The Walking Dead, too, but it feels additionally egregious here for a few reasons, including that the show is literally titled Fear the Walking Dead. This is what you were supposed to fear, show. Not the zombies, not the occasionally bad acting, not the crazy eyes. The emptiness. Now, that's scary.
