Dead Set

Post by MaxRenn » Tue Aug 26, 2008 12:04 pm

I am a huge Charlie Brooker fan so his surprise appearance at the fest was a treat. His new E4 zombie show of which we saw a clip looked surprisingly brutal, more 28 Days Later than Shaun of the Dead. The idea of having a Romero zombie apocalypse happen while a series of Big Brother is being recorded is inspired. Roll on Oct.

Yeah, there was so many great actors and directors milling around but when I saw Charlie Brooker, I got a little bit star struck.

Dead Set looks brill.

Did think 'not more zombies' but the clip was good fun and actually quite like the whole Big Brother idea.

Suprisingly gory for TV but stop it with the fire extinguisher head bashing already!

My other half said "I hope they give us a number to call to keep the zombie in".

This looked ace. I would start watching Big Brother again if they had to kill each other to win

I'd totally forgotten about Charlie Brooker's rumoured appearance until Paul collared me outside... the man is a legend. I just had to go up to the bar to say hello and he was very charming if a little taken aback at my enthusiasm.

Zombies meets Big Brother? I love it... can't wait to review it for my TV Eye column...

Gotta love Brooker's intro!

Nice, this is the one I've been telling non-FF'ers about the most.

Fingers crossed...looking forward to it.

It looked sooo good the clip. A new twist to BB. Be good to see Davina McCall get chased around by a zombie! That would stop her yakking!

We want zombie Davina! We want zombie Davina!

Oh, and someone to take out the new BBLB people - boy did they lose out when Dermot left :wink:
(God, I'm getting such a cruel streak, maybe I should start watching Big Brother or something)

Could be really brilliant so long as it doesnt carry on for 17 months like it seems Big Brother is doing this year, will be looking forward to it!
