Fight of the Living Dead – Obey the Rules

Yesterday I talked about two shows with different rates of success.

BBC3’s I survived a Zombie Apocalypse and Fight of the Living Dead have the same two concepts yet ZA was better in my eyes.

The extra reason I gave over four was that the rules were clear.   The Pilot episode declared that each player had two tear strips that if one of them was pulled, the player was dead.

May need a few random topics to talk about to get into a flow.  In fact I think I need to figure out how to relax a little more.   Make it easier.
