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 »

A touching TV show
27 May 2014 | by thalassa-90See all my reviews

This TV show is not like most of the movies featuring zombies. In the flesh is set after the apocalypse, where zombies can be treated and they can be a part of the society. The show focuses on the psychical damages of the treated zombies, how families deal with that they've got back their dead family members, the fear of the unknown and the discrimination. Sometimes it's very touching and makes you think about our society. The treated zombies behave just like other people, so don't expect too many brain eating walkers, like in walking dead. This show is not violent that way. But it shows us, that a zombie show doesn't have to be full of blood and brains.
