Dead Set

Okay, I’ve done two bad movie reviews almost back to back so I thought I would put in a good one so that everyone doesn’t think I just like to complain or that I’m never satisfied.

A few weeks ago I was surfing through iTune television shows to watch on my iPad. I don’t like to spend $40.00 on a show that I’m unfamiliar with so my cheap butt was looking in the $15.00 and under section. Due to having four kids in the house this is about the only way that I get to watch adult television programs.

One show caught my eye, well, it wasn’t actually the cover that I noticed because that is pretty lame (there I go complaining again). No, it was the description:

Flesh eating zombies have taken over Britain and are multiplying as quickly as they kill. Survivors must rapidly find ways to endure in a world that offers little refuge. Cocooned in the safety of their “Big Brother” house, fame-seeking contestants of this hit reality TV game show are safe and blissfully unaware – until “eviction night” when all hell breaks loose…

Okay, that description caught my eyes. I bought the show, but I still wasn’t expecting a lot.

It’s funny how the best shows seem to be the ones that you have low expectations of.

This was hardcore zombie mayhem with an ending that I didn’t see coming. Like Piranha, you often see more of the inside of folks than the outside, but this is a zombie show so it is somewhat expected. Though, being a television series I really wasn’t expecting that – maybe they have different standards in Britain. If so I like the British standards better.

If you have the opportunity to check this one out I would highly suggest it as it has horror, comedy and even some romance thrown in so it is bound to appeal to you on some level.
