    Get Into Em Full Back

    Another zombie series.

    Watched two episodes but it doesn't look that good. Is it worth watching?

    Just goes to show how talented the writers of The Walking Dead are to make their zombie series last 9 seasons. There's been a few attempts by others to compete with them (including this one) but I always struggle to make it past the first few episodes.

    Just watched the lot.
    Its half decent. Few of the episodes are only about 20 to 30 minutes long.

    I'm on episode 5 now. Pretty much the same as the first couple. I like the format where it skips to different scenarios and people. Sticking with it cos I like that kind of show.

    Any show would struggle to match The Walking Dead's first couple of seasons imho but I kind of lost interest in that show after 4 seasons I think.

    I haven't watched the last 2 of The Walking Dead. I think I compare all the new different ones (like Black Summer) to the first couple of seasons to that though and that's possibly why I keep losing interest - nothing can match.

    Probably right!

    Haven't seen it for ages, might be a good excuse to start watching it again from the first season..

    Ended up watching them all and they were better than expected. Some very OTT parts. What was the crack when zombies were just appearing and disappearing randomly in the last episod? Thought the ending was abit shite anorl, they should have just left it as 'it was all false hope'.

    6/10.

    Canny show. Much better than TWD.

    I made the mistake of watching ep1 in bed last night. Spent the whole night getting chased by fucking zombies.

    Same co-creator but not a prequel, confirmed by producers.

    Not even the same style of zombie either.

    He was leaving doors open to let the zombie in after him. I did go back to it to finish the season off and it did get slightly better.

    Giving z nation a go now.

    The 2 shows are completely different in tone, z nation is played for laughs.
