Really enjoyed it!
14 April 2019 | by kmary0622See all my reviews

I really liked it. No, it wasn't TWD, but it was action packed and probably a more realistic depiction of how an outbreak would go, especially with fast zombies and especially in the beginning when the useless people were being weeded out. Yes, I screamed at the TV because it drove me nuts that most of these people didn't even TRY to arm themselves, but maybe that's how it would be. We have to consider the fact that this is a world where no one has every heard the word zombie, and even though these things are dangerous, the survivors are still seeing them as people. It would take some time to wrap your brain around the idea that it was okay to kill them even if they are attacking you. Regardless of what we think when watching a show like this, the average person wouldn't be able to pull the trigger and kill a person so easily.

Having said that, it seriously irritated me how stupid some of the people were and how they walked by dozens of things that could have been used as a weapon in the absence of guns. I'd personally rather carry around a lamp and try to use it to beat the things off me than walk around empty handed. Even if the lamp didn't save me, at least I tried! But really, no one had a baseball bat? Golf club? A knife from their kitchen??? What in the world?!
