Z Nation: Under rated zombie show

24 Nov

Z Nation When most people think zombies in relation to a television show their first thought usually goes to the now well known and beloved franchise that is The Walking Dead. However there is another zombie show which is highly under rated and unknown by the vast majority of the public...Z Nation.

A SyFy channel creation this everything the Walking Dead isn't. Now coming to the end of it's second season the show has stuck to it's guns as a B movie in TV show format and if I'm honest it works...

The basic synopsis is:

Three years after the zombie virus has gutted the country, a team of everyday heroes must transport the only known survivor of the plague from New York to California, where the last functioning viral lab waits for his blood.

Without fail every episode creates a new and interesting way to kill a zombie which when you think about it is actually a pretty hard thing to do. The characters are a quirky bunch who get thrown together by chance and actually have a goal of getting somewhere which is something that The Walking Dead really lacks some might say.

The creators have clearly learnt from the first season and made season 2 even more ridiculous which surprisingly makes it such a great watch it's unreal.

However what I think truly makes the show is the character everyone is trying to keep alive but that they also would really, really love to kill. Murphy, played by Keith Allan makes the role his own and is an obnoxious half man half zombie who isn't afraid to save his own skin when the time arises. Yes you read that right a lead character who likes to run away in a zombie show.

Smartest man I've ever seen.

I won't spoil any of the story and will keep this post short but seriously if you have time and want to watch an old school zombie flick but can't find one...watch this show. It's better and funnier.
