I was very disappointed by the first episode, which is about Zombies. Much of the episode was devoted to AMC's shameless self-promotion of their Walking Dead tv series. As for the history of the Zombie sub-genre of horror, this show really lacked substance. The film-makers took all the credit, never mentioning the writers who were the real creative forces. How can they completely ignore the fact that THE WALKING DEAD tv show is based on a comic? They later discuss RE-ANIMATOR without ever mentioning the original story by HP Lovecraft. Worst of all, there is not a single mention of Richard Matheson's 1954 novel I AM LEGEND, which laid the groundwork for modern zombie films, including George Romero's NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD.
