    So i've only seen the commercials cuz i've been living under a fuckin rock, but for some reason it strikes me that zombie flicks have finally caught up with the general population (well, combined with the coming 2012 date and The Road) and apocalyptic survival is becoming a concern to the masses.

    it looks like it might be entertaining as long as they don't big brother/survivor-ize it and vote people out at the end of every other episode. how'd i miss this shit?

    Shit. I missed that too, though I will be sure to take a look at it.

    watched the first two episodes this evening (while cutting out the pieces of Serenity's left engine) and i think i facepalm.jpg'd like 9 times. some of the things these people are doing is retarded. they're more worried about getting lights on than they are about getting more food/water. it's too bad there was no way to make it more authentic and add guns and more 'real' attacks on their compound.

    three episodes left :noes: it's actually proving to be far more entertaining than i'd thought. once you get past how stupid some of the 'players' are you can just plain laugh your ass off at how we really are without the amenities of civilization. how much of a pain in the ass it is to collect water, food, toilet paper. :rofl: i'm almost getting sucked in.

    They should have hired a couple hundred actors to play some zombie fodder to really mindfuck the survivors!

    Don't make the mistake of confusing all post-apocalyptic/post-society/survivalist literature with zombie stories. :o

    True, I don't need zombies, just a flushing of the system.

    They would be a great bonus, but just a systematic destroying of the current societal fuckfest would be good enough for me.

    I agree, but as a zombie-phile it can be hard not to imagine how zombies could further fuck with your already dire situation!

    I've been on this since the beginning, but I need to catch up on the last few eps. It's a solid show, but far from 'real'. They claim it has a cross-section of society, but that's complete BS. There are no waitresses or retail workers or 'normal' people. You can tell they made sure everyone had a purpose to suit their 'challenges'. It's a good show, but not what I thought it would be. Still, it tells you how to do shit that we'll need to know after the Zombie Apocalypse. :bowdown:

    I'd still like to see a more realistic version where they shove a bunch of regular people in the same situation.

    That would be awesome. I'd audition for it. I've always wanted to see how I could do in a situation like that.
