  • Was alright.

    This episode saw a goth girl named Helen, waking up one early morning on New Year's Day and finding the entire city taken over by zombies. I have to admit the cheap scares are really getting old unfortunately, and I had to stop the episode twice and come back to it, though I did finish it though because it did have zombies in it. The twist at the end was very predictable, that many empty pill bottles plus an empty bottle in the very first few minutes sold it for me right there. Also the one scene where the old lady in the hallway not coming after her as she banged on doors just sold it to me even more that she was a zombie. It was alright to see how the other side lived, but not enough to get a higher score than what it got from me. I believe this show is going to be one and done unless the next few episodes pick up wonderfully.
