    In the Flesh is of course a complex and thought-provoking allegory.

    Gritty-smart horror that nicely complements BBC America's sci-fi sensation Orphan Black. [9 May 2014, p.57]

    Thanks to the six-hour order, there’s no shortage of subplots for the many returning faces, all of which still smartly stay close to the community hearth.

    A creepier, freakier Resurrection, in which the returned are almost human but just "other" enough to cause problems, Flesh aims high as an allegory of social prejudice and political extremism.

    There are shades of “True Blood” and “Being Human” here, and you hope that the show doesn’t drift away from the everyday dilemmas of the Walkers, who are excellently portrayed by Mr. Newberry, Harriet Cains (Kieren’s no-nonsense sister) and Marie Critchley and Steve Cooper (their parents).

Without being stated, I felt as though I'd gone through Kieran's' story when I came out as gay to my family and the trials I'd gone through. The storyline is fresh for a zombie-based series and it promises to become a smash hit; how it hasn't been widely recognised by the public yet baffles me. Expand

    Refreshingly different to other sci-fi dramas out there. Credit to the creators, especially the writers as they have built something tightRefreshingly different to other sci-fi dramas out there. Credit to the creators, especially the writers as they have built something tight that can't collapse as do so many dramas. The premise, outrageous but simple, is now established. What is really fascinating is the number of avenues for exploration - family and society drama, sci-fi and big brother, coming of age and sexuality, it's all in there and if the writers are careful this could run for many series yet. And all this with zombies...sorry, Partially Dead Syndrome sufferers. Expand

    This is a delightful take on traditional zombification. This season treats rebelliousness of youthful zombies and different addiction topics

It couched the zombie story in a sensitive and sensible way. I am so sick of watching ugly zombies chasing around and chomping on hapless still-living human beings. Haven't we a;; "been there-done that" enough already? Season two was a little disappointing since we now have zombie/human conflict that is beginning to get a bit close to chasing and chomping. I understand the political and social allegory going on here and it is quite good. Still, a little disappointing but also, still, the best zombie show out there. Expand
