AMC has had tremendous success with it’s adaptation of the comic book, The Walking Dead. It is a dark, gritty, and sometimes disgusting show. We all love it, and can’t wait for Season 5 on October 12!
Then BBC America came out with a very different take on zombies with the show, In The Flesh. It is dark, sometimes gritty, but a lot of times sad. It’s zombies in a different way, and after two seasons I love it and hope it gets renewed for a third!
So, of course my interest was peaked when I heard Syfy was coming out with their own. Given Syfy makes some cheese-tastic B movies, like Sharknado, Ghost Shark, Sand Shark, Ice Twisters, Sharknado 2, and on and on. However, do not discount their tv shows!
They have some great shows I watch/watched: Being Human (series has ended), Helix, Haven, and Dominion are the one that pop into my head.
My favorite part of zombie shows, movies, or books is the how..how did the zombies happen?, how can you kill them?, and how can you survive?
What stands out on this take on zombies that I have seen from previews is a person who survived a zombie bite. That’s pretty impressive! Normally you are screwed once bitten..perhaps you can chop off the affilicted areas, but odds are not in your favor.
Of course I see some familiar faces, which I love…it’s my thing to point out people in shows and movies (compulsion perhaps)
Then when I went to the Syfy site, and I see Tom Everett Scott!
Oh man, I can’t remember last I saw him. First thing I think seeing him is That Thing You Do! Great movie that he played in with Tom Hanks and Liv Tyler.
Check out a trailer for Z Nation. Creepiest part..zombie baby…I hate zombie babies and kids!
