You can only do so much with Zombie movies. They all have essentially the same plot. And what seperates a Grade A zombie movie from a Grade Z zombie movie is the quality of the fx/gore/make-up. Everything else is virtually the same.

I imagine there are some people here that have seen practically every Zombie movie there is out there and will defend this genre. But I've seen a handful of Zombie movies in my day, and they all seem to be interchangable.

Well, yes and no.  I mean, the same could be said about most any genre.  Westerns, gangsters, peplum, at this point in time, and in this day and age, everything's been done to death.

I think a decent writer could bring life into a series such as this.  Fer instance, few zombie movies propose much of a reason for the dead rising beyond shifty things like radiation or a passing comet, etc.  A series might delve into some background there.  Perhaps the dead return due to some horrid mistake at a secret weapons experimentation facility?  Y'know, maybe the military is trying to create a super-soldier and it gets out of hand.  Some of THESE zombies could be still around, maybe as a sort of Uruk-Hai of the dead?  Heck, I dunno.

Or, the producers could look into the apocalyptic nature of the show.  Maybe get kinda mystical with it, with Satan coming to rule the Earth on top of the whole plague of zombies?

Or, we can all just go back to watching "Super Nanny" and "Trading Spaces"...

Hrrumph.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
