Fear the Walking Dead, Episode 208 “Grotesque.” AMC. 2016.

Who watched Talking Dead following the Season 2 mid-season premiere of Fear the Walking Dead last night?  An awful lot of you, that’s who!  Thank you for continuing to make Talking Dead the number one talk show on television among adults ages 18-49.  Last night Talking Dead featured exclusive on-set interviews with Cliff Curtis, Colman Domingo, and Paul Calderon.  In June, I went down to Baja Studios in Rosarito, Mexico and met with the cast and crew.  The local Mexican crew that worked with us were fantastic and knew what I wanted even before I knew myself.  Gracias a todos.

Fun Fear Fact: the hotel where we stayed was also used as a location on the show, making it necessary to investigate every little noise after I got back to my hotel room!

On an earlier episode of Talking Dead, Kim Dickens, who plays Madison, mentioned the “special” qualities of Rosarito’s signature drink, the cadillac margarita.  Since then, I decided to go on my own fact finding mission.  I sampled them at the Hotel Rosarito, El Nido and La Casa de la Langosta in Puerto Nuevo.  They are delicious and quite potent. And the ingredient that makes them so special: damiana.  Look it up, kids.

I’m really excited to see how Fear the Walking Dead explores the Mexican cultural approach to death in this season.  As always, Chris Hardwick will help us sort through our feelings afterwards.  Stay tuned for many more behind-the-scenes interviews with the cast and crew.  Many, many thanks to Talking Dead EP Brandon Monk for inviting me on these adventures and to Carlos Huizar for organizing them.
