Z Nation – A Quick Review
These are my first impressions of the TV Show Z Nation. I watched the first episode of this show tonight. I watched it on demand since I couldn’t figure out when the silly show was supposed to air.
I hadn’t heard much of a buzz about this show on the interwebs so I wasn’t sure about what to expect.
The episode was called “Puppies and Kittens” and introduced us to this world where we’re told that the president is dead and there is no functioning government left.
Rather than give you a blow by blow, let me give you a synopsis.
- These are super zombies. Meaning they have super strength and speed.
- The zombies are also able to hunt in packs and set boobie traps.
- Zombie baby.
- Annoyingly, they call the zombies “zombies” or they call them “Zs.” This both annoys and makes me not want to watch the show anymore.
- If they’re not calling them “Zs” they’re calling them “puppies and kittens” which is even more annoying.
- The only person with a mission and purpose in life, other than to just simply survive, dies. I guess that means that there is no purpose to having a purpose.
- The guy that plays Billy, on Jim Jefferies TV show Legit, DJ Qualls, plays a radio tech stuck in the north pole. He’s supposed to try to help our band of hapless survivors but I’m not entirely sure that I read that right.
- So far, people in this show seem nicer than the people in The Walking Dead.
- Looks like we’re going to follow our merry band of survivors as they try to make it to California to take a guy that was given the only existing dose of an experimental drug that made him immune to the bite of zombies. The mission, is to get that guy to California, where there’s a lab that can synthesize additional doses of the vaccine from the his blood.
- Or something like that anyway.
Bottom line, I’ll probably watch a couple more episodes, on demand, and see where the whole thing goes. If it gets any cheesier, I’m not going to watch anymore of it.
Right now, it’s pretty Kraft Macaroni, and anymore will be too much for me. The show, is produced by The Asylum, which is the production house that brought us Sharknado 1 and 2, so you know that it will only get cheesier as time goes on.
