Zombieland TV Series “Hated Out Of Existence”

ZOMBIELAND-TV-Series

You blew it, Zombieland haters.

Screenwriter and Zombieland co-creator Rhett Reese has been apportioning blame on Twitter.

His comment about hate might seem like hyperbole, but Reese maybe has a point. Amazon posted the pilot online to garner feedback from fans, and there were certainly a certain amount of harsh ones. Because Amazon allow you to filter by star rating, voyeurs might want to check out some of the 1-star reviews. Perverts.

The chief problem, I think, was the recasting. Fans were so wed to the movie stars that they didn’t like seeing the roles re-filled.

I watched the episode myself and thought it was fine, and I can understand exactly why the recasting was essential. I was never really head over heels with the feature version, though, so perhaps that has some effect on my feelings.

Anyway, I liked both the film and pilot enough to want to see more. And I guess that now I won’t.
