OKAY SO HERE WE GO!
In the Flesh is a BBC show about zombies! But not in the traditional sense! Well- in a way but its got a fun twist.
Everyone who died in the year 2009 rose again from their graves and had classic zombie drives- kill-eat-repeat until scientists developed a medication to reverse the rabid affects on the brain. Basically anyone treated reverts back to pretty much the same person they were before they died- same personality and the such, except they’re still technically undead. They call the risen PDS sufferers or Partially Deceased Syndrome sufferers and they’re gradually sent home to live with their families again.
The show follows Kieren Walker, a queer 18yo PDS sufferer as he’s transitioned back into normal life following the rising. But it’s not greeted so well by a lot of the living folk. The entire show is basically a huge metaphor for racism and homophobia and deals with issues like segregation and hate crimes, depression, PTSD and prejudice. Those with PDS are socially obligated to wear a coverup mousse and contacts to make their skin color/eyes more living-looking to seem more “normal”
All of the characters are very rounded in both season one and season two, and each have a clear motive and drive of their own, with tons of character development in such a short show. A lot happens in each episode but it doesn’t seem rushed.
The plot and script is really well written and dynamic and has really great comedic moments (Kieren is a sarcastic little shit but wow he’s such a genuinely kind person its ridiculous) and handles shitty things in a straightforward but tactful way, and does a good job of showing diverse reactions. Not to mention! Queer representation thats not treated as a huge taboo!
It’s really such a great show and it’s probably at the top of my list of fave shows right now! I highly highly recommend it!
Here’s where you can watch it!
