News & Interviews for BrainDead: Season 1
Why does their show bring neither laughs nor scares, just the odd bit of listless splatter? And why would you bother watching this when you could be enjoying the more insightful and infinitely funnier Alpha House or Veep? Puzzlers indeed.
BrainDead never, in its execution, gives the impression that it truly groks the political system it mocks... never blends them deftly enough to suggest the deep knowledge that is required to make satire truly scathing.
Not exactly satire, not exactly horror, BrainDead is not exactly much fun, either.
BrainDead begins finding its way in Episode 3, which is a good sign of progress instead of regress. If the series runs its entire 13-episode course, it will weave its satirical/serious storyline through the national party conventions and beyond.
Trouble is, in this election cycle, truth is funnier than parody and even brain-eating bugs from outer space can't top whatever is leading the cable TV news cycle.
