The new ZOMBIELAND series, available for free streaming at Amazon.com, has been cancelled. Apparently, fans of the movie really hated it. Maybe its makers should have tried to create something new without it being tied to the movie. If you’re going to make a TV show based on a movie, it has to stand up to or otherwise stand out against the original. After all, your most likely viewers (fans of the movie) are going to make comparisons, have expectations, and have some veto power on whether it succeeds. In my view, it failed that test.
I didn’t hate it, I just thought it was tepid. It just didn’t do anything for me.
