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?
