    I'm pretty sure the musical cue as they left the quarry in episode #5 (the 60-second instrumental build-up) was ripped from the movie "Sunshine," the scene where Capa is trying to run in the suit to get to the payload before it blasts off into the sun (he falls down once on the way).

    Funny.

    Lol. It really is a crapshoot. I mean, characters who had time invested in them suddenly decide they don't want to keep going and/or get the axe. It definitely has been brutal!

    Let's play a game of pretend.

    Let's say you are someone who gets nightmares from seeing the "wrong" commericals on tv for horror films.

    With that in mind, how scary is this series?

    Well it's alot more suspenseful than scary it's also pretty gory and twisted alot of the time.

    I agree with that. Less about scares, more about action sequences and "will they get away?" Suspenseful.

    And the zombies are done up pretty horrifically. The pilot showed, for example, the top half of a zombie (sans pelvis and legs) with entrails hanging out the body, the face half-eroded, dragging itself through a park by its arms. Hordes of zombies are also getting shot, bludgeoned, decapitated, skewered, etc. The pilot also featured a poor horse getting eaten by a zombie mob, although we didn't really see the details of it; we did also see humans getting eaten/bitten badly.

    It's decent movie-style makeup and prosthetics here, it looks pretty real.

    Some great character drama, which makes it more poignant than just a "zombie movie" though. It's more about the people dropped into this horrible situation, than about the zombies per se.

    My kids don't watch it, but they're teens and are really good at figuring out what's good for them. I think the eldest would watch it and find it interesting. My daughter would never come near it, she'd have nightmares. My middle kid could go either way, depending on mood, but not be really into it.
