Zombie shows are popular. Many of them provide jump scares and violence and jenga the whole thing on a roller coaster of static characters and pure emotion.

This show takes a WHOLE different tact. The Zombie apocalypse is over. Those who have suffered from ' partially deceased syndrome 'and have been rehabilitated are being returned to their families and society.

The story has all the earmarks of great writing. People being returned loved ones they have lost. The bigotry that was built up among those whom killed PDS sufferers. Biblical scholars, undead meet-ups, ostracization, denial of self etc...

The first episode is slow and pretty much exposition but the third episode is emotionally powerful, deep, well acted and poignant.

This show is seriously depressing but you should still watch it. Kieren is the cutest zombie (or PDS sufferer) there ever was. There is so much more to this show than just zombie drama.

Concluded? Are you kidding me? Why? This show was beautifully offbeat. And what a good idea to make this about what happens after a zombie apocalypse and not while it's happening. Really pissed off to see that show go.

This is a pretty cool twist on the Zombie story. It's always nice to see an imaginative change to an old idea.

I am so sad this tv show got cancelled. It had so much potential to grow out to something more. I hope it will be renewed or restarted at some point in time.

I had high hopes for this show. It had a good premise, but I never really got excited about any of the characters or episodes.

This is not what you expect a typical zombie series to be. Yes, there are awesome zombie make-ups and gory men-eating scenes, but "In the Flesh" mainly deals with the social and psychological trauma of a possible zombie apocalypse, both for the victims, their families and the former zombies. This was quite a interesting take on the subject. As a whole the show was a bit too slow for me in the beginning, the second season picked up the pace and I liked it much better. I would have enjoyed a third season, but I guess it wasn't meant to be :(

One of the best Series I have ever watched. It has a wide variety of characters with different sexualities which is one great thing but the show puts you in a different light about "zombies"

I would recommend this to everyone, and I truly hope that it will get renewed.

I love zombies of all ages and cravings. But this show lost my attention after a few episodes. It was good but I cut it from my tracker and never looked back with regrets.
