new "Day of the Dead" show on Syfy

    So I watched the first few episodes of this new "Day of the Dead" show on Syfy.

    I should be burned-out on repetitive zombie shows by now, but admittedly I am a sucker for the title font's direct reference to the original film. It even mentions in the credits that it is somehow related to the old movie.

    However, the inconsistent zombie rules seem to be more comparable to the sillier "Return of the Living Dead" series.

    Any thoughts on this show so far?

    Quit after 2.5 episodes. Worst remake I have seen in awhile.

    Return Of The Living Dead is so much better than this…it knew how to mix humor and campy horror. This tries to be funny and scary but fails at both.

  3. Pretty bad script and acting, but good effects. Not a great show.

    The effects seem a lot like Walking Deads.
     
  5. Characters making stupid choices one after another. A shame they didn’t want to make a quality show.

    I also gave up after watching one episode.
     
  7. Well I’m still watching the show, big flaws and all. We have “Bub”.

    Because of this Bub character... Does that imply that this show is a direct reimagined/reboot version of the original film? To be more specific-- Is the woman scientist supposed to be the crazy doctor character from the old movie?
     
  9. I feel that they are making a connection there to the movie.

    Is this the same as the zombie hulk Day Of The Dead ( 2017) reimagining?

    No, I think this is a completely different
    retro-reboot-reimagined-reinvention.
