Amazon Prime watchlist: April 2019

After a full March watchlist, Amazon Prime Video in April was much more relaxed with only one TV show.

TV shows:
Fear the Walking Dead (Season 2) [7/10]

The second season of Fear the Walking Dead unfortunately spends too much time with character talk. This isn’t made any easier by most dialogues spoken in Spanish. While it adds to authenticity and sets the series apart from The Walking Dead, it becomes quite tedious to read all the subtitles. Even if various storylines are built up with varied locations, one rarely feels compassion for the characters, which is ironic, because there’s quite a lot of dialogue. Maybe it’s because they’re not that interesting or maybe the writing is simply too bland to evoke emotions. Still, despite all these problems, the action sequences and gore are what keeps the series interesting to watch, although it remains to be seen if the concept of more action, blood, and guts works in the next season, too.

I still can’t make up my mind about Fear the Walking Dead, the only series on Amazon Prime Video I watched in April. On the one hand, there’s always something (often gruesome) happening, on the other hand I couldn’t care less about the characters. However, as it’s always the case with these divisive shows: one still continues watching them.
