    Black Summer kept my attention throughout the entire second season. I'm not usually a fan of flashbacks, but this show does it well. I think this season is superior to the first.

    Zombie irony - you gotta love it.

    Okay if you liked the first season.

    In a season that seems to have jumped forward due to a lack of creativity of how to move our protagonists ahead after the end of last season, all and all this comes together as absolutely bland. Gone are the scarier beats and tension from the first season and they are replaced with large gun fights, "shock" deaths and the general troupes you see in every other zombie medium. It doesn't make this season necessarily bad but it does become frustrating to watch as you don't have to think to hard to accurately predict what is coming next. And back to the gun fights, no spoilers but you have a bunch of people moving about snowy visuals, crammed and tight areas and it's really put together in such a way as you can't truly tell whose side anyone is on or where the battle is leading. 5.5 out of 10 compared to an easy 7.5 for last season. Hopefully, and IF, they get s third season, they can get back on track but frankly, not holding up high hopes for a renewal or improvement in the event of one.

    Very intense. If you are going to compare the two shows, we can clearly see worlds evolve based on how the zombies physically manipulate their way through existence. In The Walking Dead, zombies shamble and actually try to eat brains. In Black Summer, the zombies are sprinting murder hobos bent on playing actual zombie tag. Because of this fact, a veeeery different world unfolds where characters are hesitant to develop long-standing alliances. I don't understand the single star reviews. There is room for improvement, but this show is very good. 4.25 stars for the show and .75 stars for the haters.

    I liked the 2nd season. It was completely different to the first one, but it felt a lot more mature and more serious, with less focus on action elements. For a Zombie series, it is a lot of fun.

    This season answers the question: What if 28 days later zombies were really dumb and easily confused by doors and windows?
  • 6d ago
    Season one was one of the best zombie series ever. This is just rubbish. Nothing but meaningless action and killing. No characters to care about, doesn't matter who lives or dies. Hardly any dialogue, when you don't know the characters why should I care what happens to them? Gave up half way through episode two.

    It's like watching a Let's Play of Day-Z with a real storyline and characters you care for (some at least).

    People who rate this a single star just don't get it. If there was an *actual* zombie apocalypse, this is what it would be like. You will see the worst in people. You will see people struggle. You will see people that do a noble and good thing occasionally suffer terribly for it - and that makes those gestures all the more remarkable given such a grim world. Each episode is a series of vignettes, and there is some moving backwards and forwards in time, but that is a trait of this particular show and in my opinion it works incredibly well. The actors are great, you can feel the hopelessness and tension and see how difficult it is to trust anyone apart from yourself. And even better, the characters look like normal, everyday people, and you can have great diversity in the cast but not have to use that as a promotional tool. This is simply what the Walking Dead should have been, and it's the best zombie show bar none.
