Such an original concept, a zombie television series. I don't think it's ever been done before, or if it has, never to this high standard. The idea of setting it in the very real world of big brother was brilliant. The use of the building, real life counterparts, even the cameras they use are authentic when viewing the big brother scenes as a tv programme and switch to more horror-esque cameras for the narrative. To see the trailer you wouldn't guess how gruesome this gets, and I do warn you, this is very gory. The cast are all very well chosen and obvious mention to the BB "producer" who has some hilarious lines. I never got bored waiting for something to happen, Charlie Brooker has kept the action at a high throughout so you don't settle down for too long to realise how bizarre it all is. Even for a film this would be great as I think it's one of the best zombie productions there is, especially when you find out the director doesn't like zombie films and has never directed anything even remotely like this before. I prefer this over all Romero's fims, and 28 days later and they were all higher budget. The only thing that I thought it didn't need is the high volume of shaky camera work. I know it gives it more tension and makes it feel more like you're there but sometimes you are trying to focus on what's happening and it can become a tad irritating and I'm like "keep the camera still!". The dvd is superbly presented, menu screens brilliantly designed and it's packed with some great features like special effects, a tour round the BB house and a funny interview with Charlie Brooker, swearing guaranteed. Very gruesome, very grim and a lot of political satire. The cameo's from previous BB contestants were nice to see, although I was unsure how much acting was required! This is a zombie series worthy of a lot of praise; for it's originality in a stale franchise, ideas, humour and harsh gritty reality in a whole nation of zombies.
