Z Nation

Show Summary

This show is about... err...zombies.

The story starts three years after a worldwide zombie virus outbreak. In a period referred to as 'Black Summer' the zombies end society as we know it. In the last desperate days researchers at the Naval prison laboratory in Portsmouth try to speed up the process of finding a cure by injecting some appointed 'volunteers' with experimental vaccines. Apparently one of these volunteers, Murphy, gets lucky and, even though he's bitten 8 times by zombies, survives. From this point on the story is about getting Murphy, and more important: the vaccine in his blood, safely to California where there's supposed to be a still functioning lab that can extract the vaccine.

Even though the main story is about extracting the cure, this show is about zombies. If you like zombies, this might be a show you'll enjoy. In the first episodes there's some nice elements like a zombie baby, a zombie dog (like in Resident Evil) and finishing zombies with the Liberty Bell (like one of the actors states "I'll pay money to see that again''). The show got some really bad reviews in the first week, but that's also because everybody today e x a c t l y knows how zombies look, move and should be, right?

  • love the show

    it's scary at times and funny....
  • If zombies could laugh this show would never see a zombie attack.

    There's plenty to turn away from with this show. The first few episodes are bad. From silly storylines to worse acting it leaves a lot to be desired. That said it does have a way of growing on you. You actually want to know what happens next. The Walking Dead takes a look at the serious side of the undead. This show brightens the light on how amusing the people living through it can be. Don't expect any kind of award winning performances but you'll find plenty to laugh at with this show.moreless

    I Think the shows great I don't watch TWD but this show I do all around a good series
  • Entertaining!

    Love the humor and story line! Great show!!
  • A show that deserves to be cancelled

    Sheesh, What a boring show. 3 episodes in and I find myself fast forwarding, just to get it over with. Deserves the low rating and deserves a cancellation, but will probably get a longer run than shows that are awesome and get cancelled due to low ratings.

    The walking dead has been boring the last 2 seasons (unlike the graphic novel, which is AMAZING), but Z Nation makes one want to run towards the Z's!moreless
