AMC has decided to try a money grab by offering the season finale of The Walking Dead & premiere of Fear the Walking Dead on the big screen, via fathom events, on Sunday, April 15. As if this latest season wasn't crappy enough in the first half, at least the second half has improved.

I won't. It's too much to risk (money!) considering how crappy the season started out. I'd hate to go into the theater and be hit with more of that crap. Plus whenever I smell a crossover, that usually means one of the shows needs a boost from the other, so what better way to get folks migrated over than to move a character and have a few crossover events.
We'll see how it pans out.
