Recently the BBC stepped up with a new Zombie series that really blew me away. In the Flesh is a fantastic story about the aftermath of the zombie outbreak, it’s about how people move on with their lives, or try to, after things go wrong. It’s well worth checking out for the effects and the story telling and I don’t want to give too much away except to say the basic premise is that the humans survived the zombie apocalypse and found a cure of sorts which allows the zombies to be returned to consciousness. They have to be heavily medicated and will never be normal again but they are trying to reintegrate back into society.
The story follows one zombie “survivor,” Keiren as he struggles with memories of what he did in his undead state. The first series is a short run of just three episodes and well worth every minute of watching. Think of them as a great opening movie leading to series two coming soon.
