Sneak Peek Of Tonight’s ZNation Premiere

by Peter Paltridgeon 09/11/2015
Tonight ZNation returns on SyFy. With Fear The Walking Dead in midrun at the same time, it’s no longer the only place to catch undead-driven chaos on TV and it can no longer lean on that hiatus to attract starved TWD fans who can put up with a little camp while they wait. Can it […]

TWD won’t appear until October, but Z Nation will still have Fear The Walking Dead to contend with. There have been hints that the show creators […]

ZNation Gains Soap Opera Actor

by Peter Paltridgeon 05/04/2015
SyFy is still interested in mimicking AMC, with their not-in-any-way-like-The-Walking-Dead zombie apocalypse survival show ZNation headed for a second season. You know it’s a quality ripoff because it’s made by Asylum, who specializes in SyFy knockoffs of popular things, usually with a shark or two added. Asylum has not created their own version of Mad […]

Z Nation Now On Netflix

by Shawn Hopkinson 01/09/2015
Today is the day The Asylum and Syfy’s cheesy, schlocky, but somehow really fun entry in the zombie series stakes was scheduled to hit Netflix streaming.  A quick check shows that is indeed there for your binge watching pleasure. We were extremely skeptical when we heard about low-budget show, where Washington state stands in for […]

Z Nation Season One Coming to Netflix in January

by Shawn Hopkinson 12/17/2014
The Walking Dead is a funny thing. It’s so popular that it has fans that aren’t fans of the wider zombie or horror genres. And that’s okay. We’ve got better and more in-depth discussion on just that topic here at our forums than you’ll find anywhere else. But since The Walking Dead is in the […]

Z Nation ‘Doctor of the Dead’ Recap

by Shawn Hopkinson 12/06/2014
They said they couldn’t do it. And they also said they shouldn’t do it. But Syfy and The Asylum, the creators of the Sharknado series, went ahead and made their own low-budget zombie series anyway. And here it is at the end of its first season with a second season on the way. The season […]

Z Nation ‘Murphy’s Law’ Recap

by Shawn Hopkinson 11/29/2014
Z Nation’s Murphy is a bit morally, let’s say, complex. He started off on his journey across the U.S. as a lazy coward. Along the way as he becomes more and more zombielike he’s grown more likely to help his friends and their cause, but not necessarily in ways they would approve of. Most memorably, […]

Z Nation ‘Sisters of Mercy’ Recap

by Shawn Hopkinson 11/21/2014
When Z Nation started, I expected nothing but camp. But I’ve been surprised with how often it deals in drama with only a few antics from Murphy to lighten the mood. Tonight’s episode “Sisters of Mercy” is, without a doubt, the most serious thing I’ve ever seen that also involves a zombie bear. The episode […]

Z Nation ‘Going Nuclear’ Recap

by Shawn Hopkinson 11/15/2014
The announcement of Z Nation was met with a lot of skepticism. Its production company Asylum is known mostly for camp schlock like Sharknado, and Syfy’s recent track record has been terrible. But against all odds it’s actually kind of a minor hit. Enough people have been amused by its absurd mix of over the […]

Z Nation Episode Nine ‘Die Zombie Die … Again’ Recap

by Shawn Hopkinson 11/08/2014
Mack and Addy have, so far, been the Romeo and Juliet of Z Nation. Young, in love and, considering it’s the apocalypse, probably just as doomed. The pair got separated from the main group a few episodes back. This episode catches us up with what they’ve been doing and delves into the crippling flashbacks Addy […]
