Episode 251: Never Alone

Zombie Cliche Lookout: Can’t Have Just One You’ll notice that, in most zombie stories anyway, you rarely see a zombie all on it’s own outside the first act. That solitary zombie near the beginning?

Episode 250: And We’re Back

Zombie Cliche Lookout: Cha-Cha-Cha-Changes Zombie movies, with a handful of notable exceptions, tend to be low budget affairs.

Episode 244: Enlightenment

Zombie Cliche Lookout: Can’t You See? Faith can be easier than fact sometimes. You don’t have to prove anything; there’s no empirical evidence to find to support your claim.
