  • Yet another trash cliche installment. Could have been better.

    In the very begging the episode seems promissing, there's some suspense, but after some 15 minutes it all starts going downhill fastly. Personally i think the story was very poorly explored. Nothing against the zombies at all, i actually think as for the zombies themselves it worked as a "homage" to the theme, and did pretty good job. But there were so many variable factors in the story and the flashback recourse, and those were underused, as so many other things could have been written. The explanations for the origin of the infection and the way it's transmited and how it applies to the main characters and it's consequences in the end are just so failed and make no sense at all. There could have been so much more to it then the "i'm a drunk heartbroken teen angst zombie" finale.
