Critic Reviews for Z Nation Season 1

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (10)

While there's plenty to laugh at -- like Sharknado, Z Nation knows it's bad -- SyFy's latest original series doesn't take the creative leaps to surprise an audience already too familiar with how to kill zombies.

The 13-episode series has a sweeping, impressive prologue, but the show itself almost immediately shrinks to a small-scale, dark and rustic canvas. This is the same formula that doomed NBC's Revolution.

Sep 11, 2014 | Full Review…

In Syfy's new zombie series Z Nation, the priority seems to be cramming in as much violence and gore as possible. If that means skimping on rehearsal time and retakes, so be it.

Z Nation opens at a sprinter's speed and for the most part keeps up that pace. The blood flow is constant and the makeup department answers the bell.

It was probably inevitable, given the monster success of AMC's The Walking Dead, that another zombie horror series would be forthcoming ... but I'd hoped for something a little less slapdash and cheeseball than Syfy's Z Nation

Oct 18, 2017 | Full Review…

Syfy's Z Nation has everything you want in a zombie show: stiff, shambling creatures who growl and stare with lifeless eyes. Unfortunately, these are the cast members playing survivors.

Oct 18, 2017 | Full Review…

Z Nation's biggest strengths are its momentum and pacing, along with stopping short of taking itself too seriously.

Sep 30, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Make no mistake, this is still a pretty cheesy hour of television, but they went all out in terms of setting this up as world that has just accepted the zombie apocalypse as a way of life

The mundanely self-aware screenplay includes references to the zompocalypse and lines like "God, I hate moral dilemmas."

Oct 18, 2017 | Full Review…

My biggest problem with the show is that it's bad by The Asylum's own low standards: Z Nation suffers from not knowing how cheeky it wants to be or should be.
