Quote:Inspired, says creator Charlie Brooker, by the classic horror film Dawn of the Dead, this five-episode series chronicles a nightmare scenario in which Britain is taken over by zombies. No one is spared the wrath of the undead... except the contestants and production staff filming a season of Big Brother. As they're unaware of what's happening outside, the house becomes a safe haven. Then the doors open on eviction night and all hell breaks loose. Among the stars is Big Brother presenter Davina McCall, who plays herself (and her dead self).

Repo, Ken, and I were talking about screening this on Saturday. I've seen it before, back before anybody in the US had even heard of Black Mirror (this comes from the same creator), and it's a great sendup of reality TV, specifically the British version of Big Brother. Probably my favorite zombie TV show or miniseries ever made, up there with the first season of The Walking Dead.

I admittedly haven't seen this, but iZombie says hi, and is certainly better than any TWD season (no shock, it's the Veronica Mars showrunner). This does loo fun, though, and I'm definitely hyped to screen.

The world`s a cesspool, filled with selfish and greedy beasts. We live. We die.

For some reason, I don't normally think of iZombie as a zombie show, even though it's right in the title. Probably because it's not a zombie apocalypse show.

iZombie actually plays with the zombie apocalypse trope in some really interesting ways in later seasons.
