A New Cult Comedy Halloween Classic
3 November 2013 | by (Bay Area, CA) – See all my reviews

Zombies munching to ABBA? I knew this episode was a cult classic the minute I saw it.

"Epidemiology" (S2/E6) turns zombie clichés into pop culture fodder and never. lets. up. Seriously; every actor in this episode has more than one memorable quote.

Greendale Community College faces a "ZOMBIE ATTAAAAACK" that results in the need for "a leeeetle baby quarantine." Unfortunately there is no escape for our heroes, who must fight the zombies and avoid getting' bitten (except, of course, for those who think they're immune because they're "special.")

I'm waiting for a TV station to play this one episode in a loop some Halloween. I'll be sitting on the couch with friends eating a big bowl of hot buttered "Echo Tango X-Ray 9-9-7."
