Critic reviews for The Dog

This works so well because our main characters don't understand why this is happening, or the scale of it. But man, they need to start understanding something.

The question remains, though, whether atmosphere is enough to convince us to relive what we've already lived. I'm not sure yet that it is, but I continue to hold out hope that the producers have something more up their sleeves.

If, like us, you were slightly concerned by the pace of the first two episodes of Fear The Walking Dead, then "The Dog" should finally assuages your doubts. ...the show nails the sense of escalating fear and paranoia in LA

While that twist delivered a genuine surprise, it also doesn't leave me hopeful for the future.

There were so many intricate moving parts but they were all calibrated so nicely to make your butt edge just a little bit closer to the edge of the couch.
