Re: “We all watched "Z Nation" and here's what we thought

I think I hit it on the head with a posting on Facebook regarding Z-nation. It's the generic beer version of "Walking Dead". For someone who hasn't watched WD, it would be OK, no worse than the Ving Rhames Sci-Fi channel movie he did some years ago. It's not that bad, but DJ Qualls, who I agree is the master of 'weird geeky dude" needs to be more weird, more geeky and less cool dude wanna be "Pump UP the Volume"/Pirate station with all the toys. (Although the scene with him watching and responding to an old video of GF was pretty good it did show a desperation to find out about the world outside from his frozen fortress of solitude)
Dead Zombie Baby, almost damn near jumping the shark tank. The whole "let's all shoot the delta force guy because we honestly could not stand to be given orders from someone we don't even know but we knew he was right" was a little Tarantinoesque and the only thing missing was a gun toting, bible quoting African American (ALTHOUGH THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN F'IN EXCELLENT) (somehow, I'm thinking there was an exec, at Sci-fi, that during the screening, who has nothing else better to do, jotted down 'Baby Zombie or Toddler zombie because he watched the Steven King movie about the toddler that was brought back to life wielding a steak knife )
Simple truth, not all fantasy, sci fi shows cannot be "Walking Dead" which, in it's heart is a drama screaming to be let out no more than "Z Nation" can be that drama, yet. And for God sakes, understand that the first show, in the second show of a genre, is never going to be establishing itself and it's characters right off the bat. It takes a good season to just establish characters and what they will do and not do and how far they will go. Rome was not created in a day, Rick did not decide to go to Atlanta in two episodes, so breathe, sit back, and be entertained.
