Maggie and Negan travel to post-apocalyptic Manhattan - long ago cut off from the mainland. The crumbling city is filled with the dead and denizens who have made it a world full of anarchy, danger, beauty, and terror.

WD Dead City if the first episode is anything to go by, suffers from the lack of inspiration, often associated with spin offs. Everything feels tired and forced. From the predictable team up of two characters with an abundance of well worn, negative history, to the cut and paste bad guy. A concocted peripheral character, from the original series, who is inexplicably elevated, in importance and threat. The series cause is not helped either, by clumsy literary props. The cliched, dystopian lawmen, the cheesy wanted poster of Negan, all post apocalyptic spaghetti Western knock offs. Zombie lemmings, falling from buildings is another bland touch, that does nothing to fix the pervasive feeling of lethargy and inertia. In summary, I hope this series gets better but if the current state of affairs is anything to go by, it may well go down the same path as Fear the Walking Dead. That is, nowhere interesting, let alone entertaining.
