There are a lot of people who watch 'The Walking Dead' and think it is better than 'Z Nation.' In ways it is better - the special effects in 'Z Nation' are laughable at times, the storyline can be weak - but here are 4 reasons you should give it a try.
1. Anything Goes
This show does not take itself seriously at all. They even make reference to this in the season 3 finale when one character says "it's the apocalypse - none of this makes any sense."
With some of the stuff in the show you have to wonder what drugs the writers are on. Here are some of the zany things you will see on this show:
-a talking head in a box
-a hoard of zombies running into the Grand Canyon like they were lemmings
-french kissing zombie strippers
-a zombie George R.R. Martin signing books
-zombie cheese wheel
By far the weirdest episode ends with one of the main characters running away in just his boxer shorts and a pink night-gown, stealing a bicycle from a zombie (yeah, a zombie was on a bicycle - he wasn't very good at it though as he got stuck in a tree), and making his escape on bicycle.
2. Different Kinds of Zombies
-blasters (i.e. radioactive zombies)
-zombie aliens (...ok, so that one turned out to be a hoax)
...Did I mention that anything goes?
3. Fight Scenes
He is the main character of the show. An ex-convict who is the only known survivor of a zombie bite who did not himself turn into a zombie - his blood contains antibodies that are mankind's last and best hope for a vaccine. He is humanity's last hope for survival - and doesn't he know it. In one episode he proclaims himself as the messiah and savior of the human race.
However, Murphy is selfish and only cares about his own survival. In season 3 he turns his back on humanity and creates his own race/species. You see, he has special powers: he can control zombies and he can also control humans if he exposes them to his saliva or blood - it's the latter that are referred to as blends. All of this makes Murphy an interesting character to watch.
I await comments from TWD fans.
