Saving “In The Flesh”

firecracker452:

In The Flesh is a BBC3 show about zombies. Reading that, you’d expect something akin to The Walking Dead or at least a horror movie. But In The Flesh uses the post-apocolyptic zombie theme as a conduit, rather than a shallow focus. A conduit for some of the most gripping, emotional, political, sensitive, complex, and intelligent drama I’ve seen in a long while. The main character, Kieren, is compelling and a joy to watch, as are the supporting characters, who all have their own arcs —lives, if you will. The showrunner gives so much credit to the viewer’s own intuition. Nothing is shoved in your face, and that makes the emotional impact of this show, and Kieren’s story, so much more intense. I can’t recommend it enough.

It currently has two seasons and I’m sure it would be secure for a third in a heartbeat, if it weren’t for the fact that BBC3, the channel it’s airing on, is in trouble. Save the channel, and I’m pretty confident the show will be safe too. 

There’s a petition to save BBC3 and it already has over 200.000 signatures. It needs more. If you’re as excited about the show as I am, or if you want to give it a go, please sign the petition:

What were your inspirations, especially since [Tauriel] is a completely created character; what brought you to bring that power because there were a lot of ways you could have played that role that would have been along the lines of what we usually see for a girl in an action movie where she’s not in the adventure, she’s the prize…?
