It’s a genre sundae with several extra helpings of cherries, and while it’s not as wildly delightful as it sounds in outline — what could be? — it’s not a bad binge for viewers who don’t mind B-movie production values and dialogue, and who like their zombie heavy-metal shoot-em-ups grounded more in sentimental family drama than blood-spattered excess.

Also, both american and british actors more or less popular might make you wanna look into it:
Sean Bean, Billy Zane, Miranda Richardson, Gus Khan and Michael Biehn, among others you might know.
It's part zombies and part 'Running Man' (among others), which means there's nothing new here.
People in the city have a curfew because zombies roam the area at night.
There are flashbacks (of course!) showing us how the virus that is responsible for all, was created and how it spread.
The people are not allowed to leave the city.
A race at night, organized by a mysterious stranger, gathers a group of diverse characters who want to try their luck.
Since what they do is illegal, zombies and authorities are after them, the latter not hesitating to open fire.
The prize for the winner is a permanent stay on an island without zombies.
The pace picks up quickly once the race starts and we see contestants die right from the start.
The show has enough excitement and action to keep you invested.
The characters are interesting, some are regular people (a family), some are complete weirdos (Billy Zane and his crew).
Yep, it's fun! And by the way: I just LOVE the 80s style title theme. I. LOVE. IT!
After half of the episodes the show loses steam and runs out of ideas.
I also found the ending somewhat predictable, the winner comes as not much of a surprise.
Still, i kinda enjoyed it. It you have some time to waste, this is one of the better shows to pick.
Go ahead, give it a try!… Full Review »
