Just watched the first of the new mini series and wondered what fellow BTSers thought. I'm a massive zombie fan, they're my most favourite horror
genre. Mindless killing machines with no agenda other than instinct to guide them. So, in that, this series hits all the right buttons for me.
I like the fact that its based around a 'real life', if you can call Big Brother that, scenario. They even used the real presenter, Davina 'don't
say *snip* or bugga' McCall, and included past BB contestants as well.
The effects were, ok not the most gruesome you'll have seen, but good none the less. Especially for a made for tv drama. The end scene with the fire
extinguisher, was especially well done despite being not massively graphic. Davina coming back as a zombie was a laugh too.
Some zombie purists will not like the zombies being 'runners' as opposed to 'walkers'. I disagree, I think theres room for both. The runner genre
has a lot of scope for development I think. Given that, I think this story still could have a place in the seminal 'World War Z'. There was plenty
of accounts in that for Dead Set to have a place in a second book.
Anyway, thats me for now, I'd be really ineterested to hear others thoughts on it
