Cops and Zombies
5 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A mix of Reno 911 and Zombieland, MTV's new mocumentary Death Valley follows the Undead Task Force. The UTF was created just one year before to combat the mysterious appearance of zombies, vampires, and werewolves in California's San Fernando Valley.

You might recognize Captain Dashell (Bryan Callen) as Eddie the wedding chapel owner from The Hangover. He's lost the accent and the overload of affection but not the humor. Stubeck (Charlie Sanders) and Pierce (Bryce Johnson) are the dynamic moron duo. They are more worried about looking cool and one-liners than doing a good job but they keep you laughing. Rinaldi (Tania Raymonde) and John-John (Texas Battle) are the resident bad asses who kick butt and take names. They aren't afraid to do what they have to including take out one of their own, a zombie bitten camera man. And no good spoof would be complete without the newbie, Kirsten (Caity Lotz). She may be new and the Captain may not believe in her but it's clear that she knows her stuff. But doubtful she'll ever get the credit.

The show has an interesting take on the zombie/vampire phenomena. Zombies are a part of everyday life instead of an apocalypse occurrence. The cops see zombies as just another criminal and take care of the problem like they would any other. Well, they beat them with bats and blow their brains out, so not exactly like any other. Vampires are prostitutes who get paid in blood. The show pokes fun at the zombie/vampire genre and does a good job of it while not being mean. Best of all the camera people get in on the action which is something you usually don't see.

These supernatural happenings are everyday things. One of the camera men even asks why people don't just move away instead of staying and dealing with the supernatural foes. The reply? It's their home, would you leave? They make a good point. Except for the being undead and drinking blood parts these cops seem to be dealing with the same things that real cops handle every day. The show could be a commentary on the craziness that people and cops are dealing with in the real world. We may not have zombies but we do have drugs, crime, and prostitution that can be just as bad.

Although the show is full of laughs there is an overkill of sexual innuendos. A few are funny but when they keep coming up they really get boring. There is a lack of back story. The audience is thrown into the action immediately following two cops running after a zombie and that's a little jolting for a first episode. This leaves you wondering where these supernatural beings even came from.

If you like zombies and shows like Cops you will like this show. There are a lot of laughs to be had and lots of zombie killing. It's a nice 30 minute show to watch and take a break from the stresses of life without having to think too hard.
