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 […]

Z Nation Episode Eight ‘Zunami’ Recap

by Shawn Hopkinson 11/01/2014
I’ll be honest, Z Nation has a lot of rough edges. But as I’ve watched it over those months, I’ve come to appreciate it just the same. In fact, maybe those rough edges are a big part of its appeal. Too much of our entertainment now is too easy, too slick, too smooth. Z Nation […]

Z Nation Episode Seven ‘Welcome to FU-Bar’ Recap

by Shawn Hopkinson 10/25/2014
Tonight’s episode starts with the gang still in shock over last episode’s death of Garnett, the team’s leader, as they enter Kansas. Citizen Z is on the radio broadcasting from the Northern Light Arctic NSA listening post, despair in his voice. He says it’s the third day of the sixth month of the year aught […]
