"They're calling it what?!" (via AMC)
The Walking Dead is such a conundrum. Is it the shittiest great show on television, or the greatest shitty show on television? Who knows?! It's so frustrating! Sometimes it's great, and other times it's very, very not great.
The good news is that we've got a second zombie apocalypse show coming from the people behind The Walking Dead, so hopefully the two shows will take turns being good. The bad news is that this is what they've decided to call it:
IT'S OFFICIAL! The walking dead companion show on AMC is called FEAR THE WALKING DEAD! Expect more news very soon! #FearTheWalkingDead

Fear the Walking Dead? That can't be right, can it? I'm not buying it until I see the show's official logo. Oh wait, what's this here?
(via TV Line)
Does this even count as a new title? Can you just put one word in front of a title and call it a day? I can make a list of ten titles just as good as this one with about two minutes worth of work. Wanna see?
1. The Walking Deux
2. More the Walking Dead
3. The Other Walking Dead
4. The Walking Other Dead
5. The Walking Dead 2: Still Walking
6. The Walking Dead 2: Still Dead
7. Another Show About Some Walking Dead
8. The Walking Exquisite Corpses
9. The Walking Dead: Age of "Avengers: Age of Ultron"
10. Putrid Perambulating Re-Animated Cadavers
AMC, you officially have my permission to use any of those for the spinoff of the spinoff.
