Daffodil (daffodil--ripcranberry) | 2098 comments BBC America will air the 3 part series In the Flesh starting Thursday night.

From the Wikipedia Page: Set in the fictional village of Roarton (Lancashire, England) after The Rising, in which teenager Kieren Walker was re-animated along with thousands of people who died in the year 2009. After months of rehabilitation and medication, the zombies (now referred to as partially deceased syndrome (PDS) patients by the government, but commonly known as "rotters") are judged ready to return to their homes and families. They are given cosmetics and contact lenses to conceal their decayed appearance, and must maintain a strict programme of medication to avoid going "rabid" again. Many are haunted by returning memories of the atrocities they committed while rabid. In the extremist village of Roarton, PDS sufferers face prejudice from the villagers upon their return.

Steph (angel4492) | 28051 comments Hubby's got that one set to record. I'm not sure if we'll watch as they air or all at once when it's completed.

How 'bout you? Sounds like an interesting twist on zombies. Hope it's good.


Literary Ames {Against GR Censorship} (amyorames) | 1854 comments I watched this when it was on in the UK. The first 30-45 minutes are a little shaky, then BAM! They punch you in the heart. And then they squeeze it throughout the rest of the series. You think you see things coming, and you might be right, but it's just a distracti- BANG!

You might be able to tell, I kinda liked it. :D

Daffodil (daffodil--ripcranberry) | 2098 comments I've already got all three parts programmed to record on my DVR, so I'll probably wait and watch them all at the same time. Glad to hear you liked it Ames.
