What is it?

The 2015 American action / horror / comedy-drama / post-apocalyptic television show Z Nation (Season 2).

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this television show:

In Season 2, after surviving a nuclear attack surprisingly unscathed, Warren (Kellita Smith) and Co. regroup and head back out on the long road to California.

Their first order of business: Find Murphy (Keith Allan), who, as a zombie-human hybrid, is the last hope for the human race.

But he’s also a self-obsessed jerk who’s more interested in having fun than being a hero, which is why Citizen Z (DJ Qualls) has put a price on the pimped-out Murphy’s head.

Joining the hunt for Murphy at the start of the season is a mysterious bounty hunter with questionable motives named Vasquez (Matt Cedeno).

The gang also encounter a strange cult led by guest star Anthony Michael Hall.

And Gina Gershon shows up as a queen with a plan for world domination.

My Thoughts

My brother GC and I watched all seasons of Z Nation last year back-to-back, unfortunately I did not make these posts back then, and so they have blurred together in my mind where I can not really rate each season because I can not separate them in my mind; but I possibly would rank this as my second favorite season in the series, basically I probably liked this series a bit less and less each season, but it was still more consistent than The Walking Dead.

We were late to watch this show because the trailers made it look stupid, overly goofy, and not good; and no one we follow ever reviewed it or talked about it, but this show surprised us.

I do know that this show was better than I had expected, and I liked it better than what The Walking Dead has become.

This show was comedic with action and a bit of drama, it did pretty good balancing this sometimes, but at times it was more comedic than it should have been which hurt the show at times.

I do not like how a certain character died so early, if that character had lived, then this show would have been even better because it was fun watching the main characters go back and forth with each other.

This show did have problems as it went on but it was still more consistent than The Walking Dead, I did not like the direction they went at the end, but we still were able to continue watching it unlike The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead which we gave up on.

This show had its problems but it was at least fun to watch at times, and it is better than the trailers make it seem.

Z Nation (Season 1)

What is it?

The 2014 action / horror / comedy-drama / post-apocalyptic television show Z Nation (Season 1).

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this television show:

A ragtag team attempt to transport the only known survivor of a zombie virus across post-apocalyptic America to a lab that’s waiting for his blood.

Along the way they face endless troubles including; soldier zombies, psychotic outlaws and giant hoards of flesh-eating monsters.

Final Thoughts

After deciding to give up on the television show Fear The Walking Dead after how terrible Season 4 was, I also had given up on The Walking Dead several seasons ago, I decided to give Z Nation a chance even though I thought that I would not like it.

I assumed that Z Nation would be too goofy and stupid, but to my surprise it was not as goofy as I had thought that it would be and it was better than Fear The Walking Dead (Season 4) and better than where I left off in The Walking Dead when I gave up on it.

I had never given this show a chance because the trailers made it look too goofy and stupid and no one I know ever talked about it, that is unfortunate, because this is currently better than some of its competition that takes itself too seriously (which I normally like, but The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead got worse and worse).

This show does not take itself too seriously and it is more fun and enjoyable to watch than some of its competition, and it is more consistent than some of its competition.

I did not like how a certain character died, I felt that the loss of that character hurt this show, and that the show would be better if that person had stayed alive.

Me and my brother GC finished this season and are trying to catch up with this show by watching all the seasons so far, and we are currently on season 5.

Season 1 is possibly my favorite of the seasons so far.

The end,
