Eric and Roth talk spoilers. I suggest waiting until after watching the Pilot episode.

Episode 1: Puppies and Kittens




It's too soon to make any kind of definitive statement about the show based on just one episode.  We are treading on familiar ground in the Zombie genre and they have basically swiped a story element right from the pages of TWD by having them transport a person that has what amounts to a "cure" for the Zombie outbreak. They just have to get him from Point A to Point Z.  ;D In between that will be a bunch of Zombies of course. In TWD, the new mission is getting Eugene Porter to the CDC or wherever it was they were heading for the same purpose....a known "cure". Sound familiar? So, it's going to come down to characters for Z Nation to sustain the series. Based on the first episode, do I think it will reach the same level as The Walking Dead? Not even close. But it just might be a nice stopgap to fill in the time as we wait for the new season of TWD to start. It's got potential as a series and I will say this, it's unpredictable and I wasn't expecting them to kill off one of their main stars this soon into it. For those complaining that TWD is too slow, this one is meant to give you your cake.

I started watching Z Nation this weekend. Luckily I remembered, because SyFy is already ready to yank the first episode.

So I've gotten through 3 episodes. It is what it is... and it's taking it story clearly from the template of The Walking Dead. So that has definitely tempered my enthusiasm for the show. Hey, I'm watching the same show on another channel... only better. It's not bad, but I doubt I have time to watch similar shows. That's why I'm hesitant about the Walking Dead spinoff. It's going to have to be different. As we joked earlier, I'm not down with Walking Dead L.A., or Walking Dead Hawaii.

I'll continue with the show as time filler. I do see it as one of SyFy's better products. Let's just hope they put money into story telling.

I actually stopped watching Z Nation after the second episode for a couple of reasons. 1) I only have enough free time for everything and this wasn't a top priority for me and 2) DJ Qualls character is both ridiculous and annoying as f*ck. With that said, I may come back to the series if I have nothing else to watch.

I have to look up names many times, because I just don't know them that well... but dayum, you are spot on. He is such the odd part of the show... and annoying.
