I didnt catch it when it was shown on E4 so had to watch it on Virgin playback which was good for me as i had missed a few episodes and could watch them back to back which is what i would recommend as its only 5 episodes in total and wont take you long to get through them,the time will fly by for certain.
I thought it was a good idea but done particually badly,i can understand the quickness and urgency of how it starts but the final episode is just done too quickly,i wish it would have been maybe 2 series or just 12 episodes,just bescause we are british dont mean we cant do series above 6 episodes does it?12 episodes would have been great and the ending wouldnt have been rushed which i think it was,i was actually enjoying it more before the fifth episode,that final one really brought its raiting down for me.
I can over look people being crack shots with guns after 5 minutes,the main character (played by Jaime Winstone who is also in Donkey Punch and is Ray Winstone's daughter incase you didnt know) going from ordinary woman into super woman type figure of the group in such an incredibly short space of time,also on the first episode its very clear she's cheated on her boyfriend but why no other mentions of this in the slightest?Might aswell have not even had it in the script and some there are other faults,but i cant over look the whole shakey camera whilst doing anything thats remotely dangerous,you cant see anything and it doesnt add to the shock,build up,tension or anything,it just adds to making me annoyed that i cant see anything.
On the fifth episode the character of Space is just walking down a corridor and the camera is shaking,why?Its just a massive annoyance and i dont mind films being dark aslong as you can see the action but especially the last episode the ammount of things you miss due to the shaking of the camera and the overall darkness is too much.
I cant understand why people are much faster at running when they are dead than they are when they're alive,they should seriously do zombie olympics as i recon they would all shatter Usain Bolt's record.
One more thing is i wish they would have used the former Big Brother members more as zombie's,maybe at the end Space could say something about them back in the house,zombie BB,who goes you decide or something like that.
Overall i think if the camera wasnt shaking alover the place and the series was long it would be 5 stars as it was mainly good but with all the stuff i mentioned it would be very hard to rate it above 3 stars.
