I have been catching up on material written by Charlie Brooker and eventually got around to watching this short series

The premise was intriguing but ultimately never really utilised that well at all and quickly shifted to the standard modern day zombie thing, where the graphics are gory but its all quick cuts and the zombies are fast

Dead Set is a British five-part horror thriller created by British writer Charlie Brooker. The series is set in the Big Brother house and is due to be aired on E4 from 27 October to 31 October 2008. The plot involves a zombie outbreak which strands the housemates inside the Big Brother house. Although the house is one of the only places left where people can shelter from the zombie attack, the infection soon seeps in and what follows is an unimaginable terror.
Release date: 27 October 2008

The premise was intriguing but ultimately never really utilised that well at all and quickly shifted to the standard modern day zombie thing, where the graphics are gory but its all quick cuts and the zombies are fast

For a comedy its surprisingly short on laughs and the best moments come when from the nasty producer and the dimwitted contestant Pippa

Sadly I think this was written on auto-pilot with lots of swearing and POV camcorder type stuff replacing a decent script, character building etc etc which at nearly 5 hours in length in total is criminal - no excuse for it

Despite some good moments - the horror stuff is by numbers and ” read more

"Okay so there was only 5 episodes but it was still technically a series! And plus it was really good! Big Brother being destroyed by zombies, what could be better!"

" From what I understand, this walking dead/reality series amalgam aired in two different versions; as five 30 minute series installments spread thro-out a five night run, & then, later on, as a 3+ hour compilation movie. I first viewed it in it's full movie form. And for me, the best way I can classify DS as, is this; if you like the claustrophobic horror of a film like and if you're tired of those annoying reality "stars", like the housemates of Britain's "Big Bruvver" (or if you're just ti"

Dead Set is based around Big Brother and in the house you have the type of people you would see in the house common people, weird people, normal people. The show has a twist as zombies take over and the rest of the Big Brother Housemates also Big Brother production runner Kelly, Kelly's boyfriend Riq, Patrick the producer, and Alex all try and escape and survive.

The cast are good in the show there is a few people who just didn't act so well the women Pippa was annoying but that's a typical Big Brother housemate. The show is entertaining it's crazy and very bloody. Adam Deacon who plays Space and Kelly who plays Jamie Winstone it was great seeing those 2 togeth” read more
