Yes, The Walking Dead is the "gold standard" as far as it comes to the whole zombie apocalypse and is a fine show. Sadly I stopped watching 3 episodes in last season and have never caught up. I found each viewing to be just more and more depressing drama. Which I usually enjoy, but week in and week out, just didn't work for me at the time.
So along comes this Z-Nation on SyFy. The setting of the show is three years after the zombie outbreak and in the show zombies were a part of fiction. It seems to have enough camp, cheesiness and seriousness rolled into one hour. I like how they explain certain things about zombies and basically the pace of each episode. It has several flaws and is far from perfect, but it never seems to pretend to be anything it isn't. And that just may be part of the charm for me. I don't have to feel emotionally drained at the end of each episode. Hopefully TWD's continued success will spawn more zombie apocalypse type shows. I don't see Z-Nation as competition to TWD at all, just another show in the same genre.
Anyone else watching this?
