Goofs

It's mentioned that when the PDS Sufferers were in their untreated state, brain eating was how they got their energy. It's never stated how they got their energy in their treated state, as the drug that keeps them in line only exists to help them function and doesn't actually give them energy. They can't eat or drink anything and are seen using sheep brains as a drug, but that exists only as a high. See more »

A great zombie drama!
22 March 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Now, I would have given it a ten, but I've only seen the first episode and drama's normally cannot achieve a ten and I doubt they ever will.

The good: This is one of the only drama's that aren't over dramatic, most over dramas have them overreacting to everything which is stupid and pointless. But in the flesh captures the drama genre perfectly like no other drama could ever do.

The action is spectacular and fresh, it's not everyday you see a zombie drama is it? This one just get's the job done just right.

The lighting sets a great effect that really capture the atmosphere of it all.

The storyline is also superb and strong.

It's very unique of how the zombies can be good if they aren't rabid!

The bad: Only 3 episodes, now this is one of the only bad points. It isn't so bad but I would love it to be at least six part drama.

Can be sometimes confusing, like sometimes you won't know what's going on. Like some people won't know what a rotter is.

9/10 it's an amazing drama that is worth checking out.
