Keep The Cliches Coming...
5 December 2019 | by lewilewis1997See all my reviews

Netflix? What did you do?! I'd read the summary, thought 'this should be fun' and dived into ep' 1 about an hour ago. I will force myself to watch more, but it's tough, as tough as a 90 year old Floridan pensioner's sun scorched, leathery skin, very un-tasty. Why do I mention cliches? Everyone is gorgeous or hunky, they all have a brand new spotless car, from the latest Aston Martin to the latest Range Rover. The only ugly so far is the inept cop who oozes about as much authority as that security guard at The Mall that no one takes any notice of. Lucky that his desk is right next to the police station's reception desk so that he could be on hand to hear a confession and step right in. Handy to have the Homicide Dept' so publicly exposed and on display, isn't it? But the amount of convenient coincidences have already become a hallmark of this show, so I shouldn't have been surprised. Ian Somerhalder's wig steals the show, its prominence makes it the star. Adrian Holmes, probably the best actor of the ensemble, goes from reliable friend and subservient back up to evil personified in the space of a few scenes. White guy = good guy, black guy = bad guy. Probably the worst TV cliche of all, why not just give them white + black hats just to top it off? At least it will hide that ridiculous, scene stealing wig. The final and most glaring cliche is the title. V Wars, meet Z Nation, I believe you both know World War Z? I will carry on and do ep' 2 now, but this needs to improve massively. I'm just one more cliche away from...(fill in this bit with your favourite saying about bad things happening, it'll fit).

UPDATE; I couldn't finish ep' 2. I think this show will have a small, hardcore following, the kind that paint their bedroom black and scratch pentangles on school desks. But most of us will give it a go, question some of the obvious stupidity displayed and move on to better things
