I just finished watching Black Summer on Netflix last night. Dunno if I like it or not.

On the one hand, the rage-zombies were a nice change of pace from the shambling dead and it was good to see what would happen if a bunch civvies in a suburban area faced off against the threat.

On the other hand, everyone in the show is either super dumb or totally willing to execute randos at the drop of a hat without remorse. Also the lady who only speak Korean needs subtitles - there were a couple of scenes where the only dialogue came from her, and it would have been nice to understand what she was saying.

It's the prequel to Z Nation isn't it? I liked the start of Z Nation but it went down hill fast

Dunno. I went in blind and haven't bothered to check anything further out.

It was just ok I guess. I wasn't personally invested in any of the characters at the end. Although I did like that death scenes weren't played out for dramatic effect - most of the time if a character died, they died and the scene kept going. Getting run down by a zombie horde and one of the team has a broken leg? We aint got time for that! *BLAM!*

I couldn't get past half way through the third ep, so many morons. They were that stupid I couldn't suspend reality, the zombies were fine but I couldn't believe that people could act that idiotically. Should have just imagined they were in the AFL media I guess.

Nah it’s a fan made account that pounced on the opportunity when that article was run, doesn’t have anything to do with the actual media team. Good content though.
It's going from strength to strength atm

Transpose the W and the S and hope the Giants come good? Take off the 'Golden State' bit and start supporting WA in the Shield really intently?
