Take the subject matter seriously.
Don't let zombies become totally inconsequential non-threats outside of a human driven context. Zombies need to continue to be a threat in and of themselves.
For this show in particular, this absolutely needed to show the actual fall of civilization, how in fact did zombies take over. No time skip, no 2 weeks/28 days later shit. Should have shown in detail the rise of zombies, them gaining in numbers, the failure of institutions and end at the set up for TWD.
That'd probably be the thing, the show just becomes TWD: Mexico the way it's done now, which makes the series pointless since you've got a series doing a better job already.
FTWD probably should have only been a mini-series or something at the end of the day.
