Set in Los Angeles, California, the series follows a dysfunctional family composed of high school guidance counselor Madison Clark, her English teacher boyfriend Travis Manawa, her daughter Alicia, her drug-addicted son Nick, and Travis' son from a previous marriage, Chris, at the onset of the zombie apocalypse.

Fear The Walking Dead is the prequel to hit series on AMC “The Walking Dead.” The Blu-Ray/DVD will be released tomorrow March 22nd on 2016 and if you’re a fan of the franchise this is a must buy. One thing I really like about the show it’s more focus on the characters more than the actual event. This is the birth of the zombie apocalypse and what is happening to the people around it. The pacing of the show is much slower than The Walking Dead. However the build up to the actual event is intense, engaging and scary at times. Characters like Madison Clark played greatly by Kim Dickens and Travis Manawa by Cliff Curtis. The show focuses mostly on how the citizens and family are dealing with this epicdeimic. It’s more of a personal story surrounding these characters. While the zombie apocalypse is on the horizon you still get real human drama to the story. Such as Alicia the daughter of Madison who is going through her teenage girl phase. Nick who has a drug addiction and the relationship between Travis, his son and his ex-wife all comes together. The focus more on the human dynamic of the people around the beginning of this epidemic is a big focal point. In these six episodes questions are raised but not all are explain. Overall the first six episodes are great.
The Blu-Ray Special Edition is pack with special features that give fans a more in depth look at the show. Which I really enjoyed.
Pilot Episode: The Widescreen Version - For those who likes more of the Widescreen format for the television show. The special feature has the entire pilot in widescreen. I actually like the pilot in this format. It felt more like a movie.
Inside Fear The Walking Dead: This feature has the actors and executive producers breaking down the overall plot, characterization of each episode. Each section is about 4 to 6 minutes long. If you like more of information on how actors see the characters from each episode or just want a more in depth overview. This is a great section.
Fear The Beginning: This another more in depth look at actors and executive producers perspective on characters and story line.
Five Things You Need To Survive: This was a very fun special feature where the cast gives a list of 5 things they will need to survive. Spoiler alert Cliff Curtis needs positive music with him. I can agree with that. You will need something uplifting during the zombie apocalypse.
Locations LA & Vancouver : The cast and executive producers talk about shooting in locations LA & Vancouver. This was one of my favorite features. Not only does the feature gives us a behind the scenes look at the filming. We get a better understanding of why LA was chosen for the show and how certain interior scenes were film for the show. As someone who thinks that the setting is a character in itself. It was great to here an explanation of how LA was the choice location and why.
Other special features such as Quarantined, The Faces of Fear and The Infected offer more looks into the show. There is also some delete scenes which I did enjoyed I just wish there was an indication on what episodes it was deleted from. My favorite special feature is Stunts and Anarchy. This gives a behind the scenes look at how certain stunts were done like Nick car hit from the pilot. Overall the special edition is nicely put together. You get an in depth look at the show, great audio commentary with some great behind scenes stories and the show is great.

What makes this Scooby Doo entry a good one is the old school feel you get. Remember those Scooby Doo movies with Batman and Robin, Don Knotts and many more? This movie carries that same feel with the WWE Superstars. The film doesn't overdo it with guest appearances. Instead it has a nice balance of the Scooby and the gang and the WWE Superstars. The story is what you expect from a Scooby Doo movie. It follows the same formula of a spooky ghost terrorizing a town only this town is WWE City. WWE City is a city full of WWE Superstars, stores and many more. Think of it of a place where every fan of the WWE Universe would want to live. While the story is your Scooby Doo blueprint, it does pack tons of action, silly gags that the whole family will enjoy. Scooby Doo Wrestlemania Mystery is worth checking out.

But he can't help but wonder what their ulterior motives are... “In BLOOD PRISON, Naruto is behind bars in a shinobi Alcatraz, accused of murder and attempted assassination, and the storyline and action that ensue makes this the most exciting NARUTO SHIPPUDEN feature film yet,” says Charlene Ingram, Senior Manager, Animation Marketing. “Audiences are in for a wild ride as Naruto tries to prove his innocence and also help his new friends uncover the secrets surrounding the mysterious Box of Paradise, and their ties to what it contains. Catch all the action on DVD and Blu-ray!”
