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?

  • 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

    This show is awesome .
  • Fracking Zombies!

    7.5
    This may be a B level show, but it's funny and quite entretaining amongst all of its ridiculousness. Yes, it has a baby zombie that runs faster than Usain Bolt and eats Harrold Perrineau; and yes, it has a zombie dog that arrives in a sleigh and tries to kill DJ Qualls. It's lame and stupid sometimes, but it made me laugh, and some things - like their mission to save humankind - are really interesting. And honestly, it's Syfy. Could we expect anything better?moreless
  • A B movie view on the zombie apocalypse

    7.5
    If TWD is an A level series about the zombie apocalypse, Z Nation is more like a B level series you watch with a bowl of popcorn. Sure it's not as dramatic or well acted as TWD, but I prefer this quirky look at the genre more than the latest seasons of TWD.

    It's all a bit silly, but some things in it are in a way more realistic than in TWD. Not everybody is going to be a depressed idiot, just like now some people will just continue being weird and stupid.

    If you can enjoy slightly silly shows like this, give it a go and you just might grow to like it.moreless
