Trivia

Several of the names in the series are puns. Kieren's last name is Walker, which is a term sometimes used to refer to zombies. Amy's last name is Dyer, referencing her deceased state. The show is set in the fictional village of Roarton, which sounds like "rotten". 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 Brilliant Zombie Show with a lot of heart.
12 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

\Going into this series i knew only one thing about this show and that was it had zombies in it and I needed something to tie me over until the next season of Walking Dead arrived. What i got was an emotional roller coaster which not only takes the typical zombie gore fest in a new and less mindless direction but provides an inescapable emotional roller coaster ride which i would highly recommend.

The series focuses on Kieren Walker a recovering zombie who is placed back with his family and has to deal with his new condition as well as the prejudice and hate that comes from the accepting community around him. The concept itself is very interesting and many of the subjects it touches upon has real world and often very relative implications.

In The Flesh is not a TV show to watch for mindless entertainment, it looks deeply at real world issues and can get quite dark, looking at ideas of prejudice, suicide, sexuality and extreme religious views. What ever you do don't watch In the Flesh for loads of gore or violence because you wont get much, however this I think serves the show well and its sparing use of violence and gore even more impact when situations do escalate to deadly results.

Visually the show is a treat and beautifully shot, with excellent locations and a diverse range of settings its hard to falter the production values of this show. Acting is top notch and every cast member gives memorable performances and I think this is what really brings in the flesh to life. It creates these living breathing characters that you feel for and understand, which makes their problems even more relatable and interesting.

I have to warn you though that this is not a feel good tap your heels and skip off into the sunset type of show and I often tell people that if you get into this show there will be more than a few tears shed by the end. To me this show has positioned itself quite comfort next to some of my favourite TV shows. Well worth a check out. Bring on Season 2 is all I can say!
