There’s certainly plenty left to explore here, and even if the series moves further down the path of plot development, this world is one of television’s most interesting.
“Episode 5” paints a much clearer picture of who Simon really is by going into who he once was. Leave it to this series to find the most heartbreaking narratives possible.
After a season premiere that was a little bogged down with trying to re-establish the world of In the Flesh, treading slightly too-familiar ground, “Episode 2” is an example of everything this series does right.
In the Flesh most likely went under the radar last year during its three-episode first season on BBC America. The series is a British import and, like Sundance TV’s The Returned, is a fresh take on the zombie genre.
