The series is anchored by incredibly strong performances from its mostly young cast,.

Mesmerizing drama ponders the mysteries of life and death.

Nov 22, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

In this era of drawn-out-to-the-point-of-emaciation streaming efforts like Bloodline and Luke Cage, however, it's hard to complain about a tantalizing series that leaves one wanting more.

Senior Constable James Hayes and the clan of undead that turn his humdrum country town upside down don't resonate. They don't provide me with the escape that I'm yearning for.

It had to happen sooner or later. And given that it did have to happen, how marvellous that it's happened like this. We finally have our very own zombie series, and it's a cracker.

    Fantastic acting, great pacing. I love how every character has depth and you can empathize with the supposed 'bad guys'. Some characters were given substantially stronger storylines than others in terms of character depth but overall minus the obvious exceptions all the characters feel well drawn. I love this show.

    Great work and nice story

    A very interesting take on a very popular genre and holds unique plot points compared to other shows like it. It sometimes lacks in logical script writing but aside from some awkward sections it a good watch.

    Potentially interesting Austin zombie retake with some serious quality control issues in the script and plot departments. It' also suffers from tonal problems, veering on occasion between profound and borderline comedy. The Irish character - Paddy, would you believe it? - is a truly terrible character. The biggest problem is the tension is all derived from the interplay between the characters and their modern day counterparts - what will the dead wife say about the new pregnant one? - rather than the fact that they are zombies. The immediate tacit collusion between the copper and the doctor is poorly explained and implausible and the relationship.between the young aboriginal guy and Paddy even less so. Lots of details are off key too. Paddy - again - checks the road for traffic before crossing in a very modern way despite having been dead for a century. The Italian lady is shown asleep in close up and has mascara clumped around her eyelashes. The violent store robbery goes unreported and the perpetrator - a small town local - is unrecognised. The doctor has a secret shed the size of Wembley that the local plod are unaware of. And so on. It's a shame because some of the performances are very good. Fact is, and maybe this is the truth about reanimation, that the dead, once reborn just become boring living people all over again. That's even more scary than them eating people's brains.

    I really enjoyed this show. It kept me wanting more.
  • Dec 15, 2017
    Slogging, nonsensical sci-fi drama. This show began as if it had somewhere interesting to go, but then reality set in and it becomes painfully evident that the writers have no idea where they want to go with it. Even the characters begin to show signs of boredom with the show in the middle of season 2 when they are doing nothing but frantically driving from one place to another. Nothing is ever resolved; the suspense is maintained only by the initial premise and characters appear to just abandon their normal lives for this secret they are protecting. It's weird and interesting initially but grinds into a nonsensical ditch to the point that I just wanted all the characters to go away.

    Something new to binge watch. Not your typical undead series. For us it's another on Netflix.
