The trailers they're showing on TV look AMAZING.

I think the show's going to get big viewing figures.
Not just Brooker and comedy fans, but horror fans and Big Brother fans too!

It would have been so cool if they'd kept Davina's zombiness as a surprise.

But yay, 27th!!!!!!

Yeah that would have been better but they already splashed her on the front cover now. She does look very good though all done up and that is literally the only time i will sort of like Davina...half dead

*finds thread*

I am so mad this is on E4! Maybe they will repeat it on Ch 4. I agree about the Davina thing. I went to the website and there was a pic of her. Should have been a surprise. But yay indeed for Kevin Eldon! :D I wonder if I can watch it on the catch-up service.

WOW! :shock:
Now that was actually brilliant. Really fecking terrifying (Yes, I was cuddled up on my chair, biting my nails and wishing I had a teddy with me to keep me from being quite such a wuss)
I loved how it was shot. The shaky camera and muted tones really added to the feel and mood. The actors did really well, the make-up and utter gore are going to stay with me for a good while.

Zombies are my all time :shock:
Vampires are sexmo. What could be better than having your neck nibbled by some sexy strong pale love God and made eternally ageless and strong? Sleeping during the day leaving you free to suck de blooood ah ah ahhhhhhh during night time? Sign me up!

Werewolves? Yeah pretty scary, but you only have to worry a few nights a month and we all know it's about the transition from girl to woman, period blah blah blah. But Zombies. Proper scary never gonna give up till they've ripped out your throat and guts, always coming, you can cut off their limbs but they'll still come for you?? AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!

Bring on the rest of Dead Set!

That was so great, mixing the naffness of Big Brother with something so gory. Thought Davina was pretty terrifying as a zombie. I'm missing it this evening but downloading the next one tomorrow, ahh exciting :D

I really enjoyed this too, 2nd episode was a bit slow but it was only on for half hour so i'll let it off.
The make up looks amazing i have to say, Davina looks ace she should present big brother looking like that all the time! :lol:

That was so awesome. Loved this next episode. I love the Brooker-isms incorporated in the producer particularly when he called the evictee a foetus.
