IN THE FLESH Review; British Drama Gives Fresh Twist to the Zombie Genre

BBC America is running a three-night special miniseries event that shows zombies as they have not been portrayed before. In The Flesh, which originally aired in the U.K. several months ago, picks up after "The Rising," where the recently deceased were brought back from the dead for reasons unknown, ate brains (as zombies are wont to do), and then were somehow rounded up, quarantined, and rehabilitated. The miniseries follows the story of Kiernan "Ren" Walker (Luke Newberry), as he is given daily shots that artificially restore his brain function, allowing him to return to his former self in personality if not in looks. For that, the government issues the former zombies — known as suffering from PDS, or post-deceased syndrome — color contacts, hair and face make-up, and other body prosthetics that will make it easier for their communities to accept their return. Hit the jump for more on this moody, atmospheric series that is a must-watch. READ MORE...
