Looks interesting. Any word on if they are going for a straight drama or will be having a bit of humor in it? I don't recall too many pure drama UK zombie works.
There's only three episodes in the entire series, so they need to get movingThis early in the series, it is too soon to say, but some very intriguing back stories are beginning to emerge, and some of the one-dimensional characters are gaining depth and colour. There appears to be plenty of scope for building the story into as large a franchise as Being Human was.
Were only three planned? The UK system of doing TV shows seems to be similar to what in the US we would call a "mini-series" and not a full TV season. Typically a full US season will run 15-23 episodes with a new episode airing every week until the end of the season, then a gap of time, then a new season starts. Years ago it used to coincide with the seasons (hence the naming conventions ) in that there would hardly be anything but repeats aired during the Summer and then new episodes start airing in the Fall through Spring. Now, though, with the plethora of cable stations, each network has come to redefine what their seasons are. A mini-series, by contrast, are designed to be one-time events with only an X number of episodes that would ever be filmed & aired.There's only three episodes in the entire series, so they need to get moving
Should be I taking offense at this?... the average USian is not known for a willingness to devote more than 5% of their attention to a TV programme, which means that cerebral programming in a foreign language (Britlish) is not exactly marketable. ....
