If you feel like your life could use another zombie show, Netflix's new eight-part series Black Summer might be just what you are looking for. Watch the trailer below.
Moving at a brisker pace than The Walking Dead, everything is fast in Black Summer – the storyline advances quickly, the camera-work is pacy and shot on hand-held devices … even the zombies run.
In fact, running is pretty much all that happens in the first episode, which is comprised of a handful of short segments that introduce us to some of the characters caught up in a zombie outbreak.
There are a couple of scenes that slow things down and feature actual conversations, but it’s mostly running. That’s not necessarily a bad thing – it certainly makes for an exciting watch. Question is: can it sustain the pace? (On Netflix now) 3 stars
