Walking Dead Season 8 – Second Half Thoughts

| April 17, 2018

Well, as predicted, TWD did not give us Zombie Carl. It also didn’t give us an escape from Negan’s endless chattery. Instead there was another half season of scheming, double-crosses, triple-crosses… if our math is right, the finale had a quintuple cross at the end. Like nesting dolls made of treachery. So there was a [...]

Walking Dead Season 8 – First Half Thoughts

| December 19, 2017

We were uneasy about this latest season of The Walking Dead here on the ZRC blog, as mentioned in a post last summer, and so far, our suspicions have been handily borne out. But the show should really be rebranded ‘The Talking Negan’ by now. Good grief. We never thought we’d say this here at [...]

Fear the Walking Dead – Season 3 Thoughts

| November 15, 2017

Now that the third season of ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ Season 3 is over, the ZRC has been giving some thoughts to this spinoff. Naturally, we are still opposed. From the title on down, it is still hardly a nuanced portrayal of the Differently Animated, even as Season 3 proved determined to delve into complicated [...]

(Walkers…welcome? We hope so!) On a recent West Coast outing, the Zombie Rights Campaign staff had time for a short detour to the Zombee Donuts and Bakeshop, located in Fullerton, California.

ZRC Review – Dead Set Episode 5

| June 7, 2017

The final episode of ‘Dead Set’ begins with a hastily-averted sniping tragedy and the happy reunion of Riq and Kelly. Aww. I guess. But can happiness possibly last with such a dysfunctional cast? (Note: this is a very spoiler heavy analysis, so only read further if you dare)

Is reality television good for you? Can it even get you killed? Well…

Looting, violence and angry self-destructive behavior, all that and more on the next episode of ‘Dead Set’! (Also essentially every Zombie Apocalypse story ever. More below the cut).

ZRC Review – Dead Set Episode 2

| May 8, 2017

Episode 2 opens with Kelly’s boyfriend Riq being thrust into the alleged Zombie apocalypse (the ZRC strongly disputes this traditional framing). Also, dealing with mass transit during a significant social upheaval. More below the cut.

ZRC Review – Dead Set Episode 1

| May 1, 2017

Reality Television. Anti-Zombie media. Two of the biggest and most widely criticized pop-culture phenomena of the last few decades (although, in the Zombie case, we feel rarely for the proper reasons). What would happen if you were to.. combine.. the two?

ZRC Review – What We Become

| April 20, 2017

You know a movie is going to happy places when it opens in media res with a scene of a woman screaming in terror in a darkened room. More details below the cut.
