The Overview: Beware of spoilers…
Tales of the Walking Dead is an anthology series that takes place in the world of The Walking Dead. Each episode is a self-contained story with no continuing characters. This series sometimes ventures into different horror subgenres (time-loop, a haunted house/witch, etc.) which is refreshing. I enjoyed all the episodes, but even if you find one lacking, the next is something different.
My favorites were:
1. “Evie / Joe” starring Olivia Munn and Terry Crews
4 “Amy / Dr. Everett” starring Poppy Liu and Anthony Edwards
5 “Davon” starring Jessie T. Usher
I hope we get a season 2.
Tales of the Walking Dead, Season 1 earns 4 of 5 stars.
