Watching this right now. It’s pretty good once you get past the fact that it’s British (it’s a joke people, stop being so serious all of the time) and the zombies are maybe a little on the fast side of things.
Overall it was entertaining and had lots and lots of blood and guts (as any good zombie flick should), a shit ton of swearing, and the acting was solid, especially when one considers that not only is it British, but was made for British Television. The other thing that is kind of annoying, though it has nothing to do with the show itself really, is that at the beginning of every episode beyond the first (there are five total episodes) is the “previously on.” Now, there is nothing wrong with “previously on” segments, but the ones in Dead Set take over a minute, and there is simply no reason why they should take that long. Still, that’s a minor complaint and as I wrote before, really has nothing to do with the show itself.
