This is not a recap but more a first impression. I’ve never seen or played the game so I went into this knowing next to nothing (to be fair, that’s how I enter most things). I’m a sucker for post-apocalyptic zombie/monster/alien stories so I was definitely going to check this one out. I’ll be tuning in next week for the second episode. I won’t go into details other than to say the opening is a brilliant, and arguably one of the best, explanations for a zombie epidemic that I’ve ever seen. It makes sense.
Personally, I prefer these stories to start with a solitary figure in a vast, desolate landscape, but I’m intrigued with the more populated approach of this one.
