    In the Flesh has potential, even if it just shuffles along at times en route to driving home its point.

    Unfortunately, the potentially intriguing premise of this new three-part BBC America series, In the Flesh, soon turns into a heavy-handed allegory for how we treat anyone who is different and perceived as threatening.

But all in all, quite good and enough here to warrant a second series.. Full Review »

    Decriminalizing a sickness is a first for Western Civilization if Britain can still be considered as such.

    This is a delightful take on traditional zombification. Unlike Walking Dead one is not left wanting a newly major character be killed off: #KillKarl

    Unfortunately this series as with most in the BBC is afflicted with the Social Cancer (tm) of socialism producing an unpalatable THREE WHOLE EPISODES per season :(
