In The Flesh is a quintessential slice of British telefantasy. In an era when most supernatural horror shows are deciding between to routes – grim and gritty? Or horror comedy? – In The Flesh goes into reverse gear and recalls instead the kind of slightly cosy, unashamedly homespun British sci-fi of Survivors, The Last Train, The Changes or even The Tripods. While many US TV producers try to argue with varying degrees of conviction that, “Our show isn’t really about vampires/aliens/supercomputers; it’s about the characters”, In The Flesh truly is character piece first, and a zombie show second. Some great supernatural upheaval may have changed society, but people are still people, and the price of beer or the what ’er down the road is doing behind those closed curtains remain crucial. This is both its great strength, but also the source of it problems as well.
I really enjoyed this new take on zombis and the few that aren't so badly maimed that can be put on perpetual drug treatments and hopefully rehabilitated but are also hated by the living. _________________ http://zombi-blogia.blogspot.co.uk/
