    Watched Episode 2 lat night. Will see this through to the end but it's not all that to be honest. Shame on you BBC for ruining a very good genre.

    It was a bit sloppy I thought. For example, if the sufferers have lost all the colour in their skin and eyelashes, wouldnt they have lost the colour in their hair as well? Would Amy have hair if she died of leukaemia? And even if she didn't have chemo, sufferers usually lose a lot of weight before they die - she looks pretty solid to me.
    The sudden acceptance of the rotters by the town seems a bit iffy too - why hasnt anything been done about the shooting of the old lady?
    They seemed so anti and now it is OK? I get that Rick didn't eat local people but even so...
    If they don't eat - how are they surviving? Why are their guts rotten and not the rest of them?
    So many questions...
    Still, I thought it was at least a different take on the genre and it could be worked up into something good. How they are going to sort it or come to some sort of conclusion in only one more episode I can't imagine.

    This is the bit that got me too. Bill seems VERY hypocritical to me and loses a lot of his character's strength by behaving in the way he did in last nights episode.

    I also suspect some homosexual undertones between Keiren and Rick. The conversation in the car made me think that this was the case, which also explains why Keiren killed himself when Rick died.

    Well i'm enjoying it. Its not and in no way tries to be like The Walking Dead (which i also enjoy) and yes its full of un answered questions and improbables but to be honest who knows what would happen in a Zombie outbreak. In World War Z the Zombies eat but don't digest so why bother?

    His parents just don't get it, trying to feed him and giving him drinks. Denial springs to mind.

    Yes I agree - they don't seem astounded that the son they lost to suicide is back. I wouldnt let him out of my sight!
