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... More

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

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.

Very well made and interesting take on the zombie story which frankly needs some new insights.

Loved this show. Took until the end of season one to grasp everything I had just watched. The episodes are short, yet so much detail in each one. Such a new concept on Zombies, screen wise that is.

Our hero, and his time in the reeducation camp being taught how to be "normal" again. And after he, along with any other fixed Zombie can reenter the world they once. As "normal" members of society. Kieren Walker (wonder if that was an Easter Egg for zombies being called walker in so many other shows and book. Anyway, he wakes up, puts on all the make up and prosthetics for appearance, then with an empty cup and plate of food he, pretends to eat. Gets to hang out with other from the reeducation camp. Since they are all pretty much outcasts.

A different take on the zombie subject. A show about integration, love and the acceptance of the other.

i absolutely adored it...every character represents an ideal, and they're all understadable, even when you don't like the character itself. Maxine is a villain of the likes of Dolores Umbridge, terrifying and horrible, completely hateful, which makes her even more powerful. The oppression of the pds sufferers is somewhat cartoonish, but it cuts into the middle of the things, it makes you ache for kieren, amy and everyone else...there's... More

The oppression of the pds sufferers is somewhat cartoonish, but it cuts into the middle of the things, it makes you ache for kieren, amy and everyone else...there's realistic representation of ptsd in jem's character..the relationships between the characters is realistic: kieren and his family is not the perfect representation of family, but you can feel that they love eachother, there's also the relationship between jem and the hvf members

I like it but I am just not so sure about it. I hate that it concluded without more info but it was a good watch if you are bored and like dark shows.
