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?


    Z Nation Season 2 Premiere Review: Saving Humanity (and Money) at What Cost?

    The low-budget balls-out zombie drama is a charmer that knows what it fans want.

    • Totally sucks

      I tried to give a try... couldn't even finish watching the first episode. Terrible actors and production. As I said before,they should've used this effort on another idea.
    • Really good!

      I can't get over how great this show is. It combines humor with a VERY serious situation like the zombie apocalypse. There has been a few duds, but hey, that's with any show. The humor just makes it even better.
    • What Happened Season Two??

      I was such a fan of this show I even got 6 other people hooked on it. That was Season 1. But except for a few standout moments, season two was a letdown. Still love Murphy and Doc, the two best characters they have, but everyone else went down the tubes. Season 1 was great in that you cared about everyone so no matter who starred in an episode you were interested. The characters had depth, many sides, there was some drama, some comedy, some camp, & a great storyline-good combo. Two was mostly camp, 1 dimensional toons, little to no drama or story with the depth of season one. Bring back the old formula or I won't be around for giving it a couple stars for Murphy and Doc.moreless
    • Z Nation: Good. Not as good as The Walking Dead. But still good.

      One viewer says, "But the Walking dead can be extremely boring and drawn out to consume

      Comment: The social commentators are right. Attention spans are shorter today.
    • Easily the best Zombie series around

      I have been a zombiefan ever since my brother told me he had seen one about zombies in a mall. I was eleven years old, next year my mother took me to a zombie movie, we left halfway because of the gore, but I was hooked. Now in this era of zombies I am having a ball :-)

      But the Walking dead can be extremely boring and drawn out to consume time.

      Then this beauty comes allong. Fastpaced, clever and original. I thought I knew most of the angles by now, but this series just keeps comming upi with great great ideas.

      Maybe you have to look throught the acting a bit and not all idead are brilliant ^^

      It is a shame that people give this series such a bad rating over that moneymachine with half a story called the walking boring or was it the boring dead?

      Anyhow Z NATION is awesome! Go and try two or three episodes.moreless
