In the Flesh S2 Ep6

In the Flesh S2 Ep6

If In the Flesh doesn’t get a third series, there’s no justice in television. With the sixth and final episode of series 2, the story isn’t over by a long shot, and it left us hanging as the apparently-dead body of a major character was exhumed, reminding us that, in the In the Flesh universe, we have no idea when physical death begins and ends.

On the upside, at least for the fandom, series two…

In the Flesh S2 Ep5

In the Flesh S2 Ep5

In the Flesh continues to show that it is the best show currently on television, never afraid to make viewers question its characters or allow characters to make difficult decisions.

After a very relationship and romance-focused episode last week, In the Flesh 2.5 grows ever darker (with a small ray of light), as the show eases toward the big finale of the 6 episode season (which, hopefully, will…

In the Flesh S2 Ep4

In the Flesh S2 Ep4

In the Flesh has always been more about interpersonal relationships than zombie uprisings, dystopia, and violence. I confess, coming into Season 2, I was a little worried that the Undead Prophet storyline, and more of a focus on political extremism, both from with the ULA the Victus party, would lessen the impact of the characters and their relationships.

I needn’t have worried. In the Fleshis…

Written by Fintan Ryan and John Jackson,  2.3 is largely about PDS sufferer Freddie Preston, who has become a familiar face; he runs a window-cleaning business with Dean and appears to be the most well-adjusted and assimilated of Roarton’s partially deceased.…

In The Flesh S2 Ep 1

In The Flesh S2 Ep 1

In the Flesh has made its return to BBC America, and this time US fans don’t have to wait months — BBCA is broadcasting episodes less than a week after their BBC Three airings in the UK. The 56 minute episodes are extended to 1 hour 15 minutes of time, allowing for BBCA’s commercial breaks, while sparing us from the heavy editing that plagued, for example, Being Human’s BBCA broadcast.

In The FleshThe second season of the BBC Three/BBC America zombie drama In the Fleshlaunches in less than a month on both sides of the pond, and the new trailer from BBC Three has us counting the days. While the trailer keeps things nicely spoiler-free, its “Choose A Side” slogan and rapid-fire shots of characters (Amy!!) and the words “Alive” and “Dead” suggests that the divide between the living and those…
