Zomboat! Episode 2

Zomboat! burst onto our screens last week and while we loved it we noted that it felt “a bit rushed with lots crammed in.” As Episode 2 washed over us like fresh zombie blood in a car we were happy to see all our concerns fade into the background and Zomboat take a strong foothold of itself with bold steps forward.

The episode follows on from the end of Episode 1 with Kat (Leah Brotherhead) and Jo (Cara Theobold) wanting Amar (Ryan McKen) and Sunny (Hamza Jeetooa) off the boat. Jo is upset about ex-boyfriend Rob and whilst drinking from a mug covered in pictures of Rob and his “rebound shag” decides to get her phone to call him. Amar joins her, determined to find a car.

Meanwhile, Kat meets her online gaming Guild Master and gaming idol, BIGDAMEHERO (Rochenda Sandall) who it turns out inspired Kat’s zombie apocalypse plan. Sunny though isn’t convinced about BIGDAMEHERO and attempts to warn Kat.

As the world of Zomboat! expands we are treated to some enticing group dynamics from our main four stars. The combinations of the four we see in this episode pay off big time with character traits explored and presented fully to the audience. As these interchange through the season I feel this will ebcome the shows greatest strength.

VERDICT: 9/10 A solid step forward that gives the audience fresh unique characters to enjoy. Whilst other zombie shows drudge on in misery Zomboat! is showing the world they it is ok to have fun whilst trying to survive an apocolypse. If you haven’t seen it yet you are missing out.
