This low budget Black Comedy from a Network no one outside of a major metro can get is worth finding....if you can(I found it on Hulu Plus).
While formulaic(Nerds, Jocks, Bitchy Cock-teasing Princesses, Mean Girl with a Heart-of-Gold, etc) the situation and writing makes it actually appropriate.
So, 3 Gamers are in the middle of a marathon 'Dead Rising' session when a Zombie outbreak hits L.A. Their knowledge of various Zombie games keeps them and their friends alive in a sealed of L.A. in the 1st days of the epidemic.
Twistedly funny, apparent when, as they are escaping their 1st big encounter with the Living Dead "Obama" comes on the radio announcing that something this serious needs cool heads and reflection, so he's having LA sealed up until a solution that meets the needs of all is found;>...).
Cheers,
Pat

I Know I'm Anal-REtentive but it reaaallly annoys me when Writers don't do basic research on their subject.
Case In Point:
I'm reading a book from a fairly popular Sci-Fi/Fantasy author. It's set at the end of the last Ice Age, in the "Conan" type genre. Now, I don't mind the Iron-Age stuff that much because one ofthe main bits is that there was a more advanced civilization before...BUT. What's "ticking" me off is all the American crops these N Europeans are Growing and Using. Maize(corn) and Tobacco are the two most glaring. I'm waiting for our Heroe to set down to a nice Potato dinner....
Grumble, Grumble:>
Troth,
Pat
