Trivia

Anyone who was a zombie during the 'rising' and got the medical treatments are diagnosed with PDS (Partially Deceased Syndrome). See more »

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 »

Zombie series with a brain and a heart.
3 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

Just watched "In The Flesh" and thoroughly enjoyed it. An interesting take on Zombie apocalypse, playing with our preconceptions of Zombie rules and presenting a tense personal drama. Many plot lines and complex relationships with plenty to make you think about in between episodes.

Disappointed to see one (spectacularly) bad review for this mini-series but I think all of the other positive reviews speak for themselves. If you want to see some Zombie carnage (which I do like) then this is not it. However, given that almost all Zombie films/series feature brains and blood letting action, I think there is room for something a bit more contemplative, gentle and thought provoking.
