Another 7 days or so before the premiere of the Walking Dead. I was wandering around on the internet looking for stuff to add content to this site and I stumbled on a mini-series called Dead-Set. I was actually very surprised I had never heard of it.
It is a mini-series from the UK about people who are in the middle of filming a reality television show when there is a Zombie outbreak, and pretty much everyone outside of the house they are filming in dies. I would say that this mini-series is awesome (If you like zombie stuff). The acting is decent, there are not huge plot holes, no superman heroics, and the Zombies are pretty nasty. It is actually very realistic and good, realistic of course outside of the zombie outbreak but it’s inferred that you suspend disbelief in that. Don’t get me wrong watching Milla Jovovich Karate kick zombies is entertaining in all, but what I really like is the survival stories of regular people figuring ways to deal with the worst situations.
I have watched half of it so far and unless the the ending suddenly gets very stupid I would have to recommend it to any fans of the genre. I haven’t actually seen any zombie movie this good in a very long time.
