Z Nation stars Harold Perrineau, Tom Everett Scott, DJ Qualls, and a bunch of nobodies in SyFy’s new post-zombie apocalypse series. They kind of lost me with the opening newscast voiceover, “The President is dead. This is an extinction scale event. Do not panic… National governments have fallen. There is no cure.” If you don’t want them to panic, you probably shouldn’t have told them… everything else in that message.
The whole thing has the feel of a SyFy original movie, to be honest. A few actors recognizable as “that guy from that thing,” a low budget despite a concept that requires a lot of special effects, and crappy dialog. Not recommended.
