Dead Set is quite a good zombie apocalypse movie tv series -- hewing close to the traditions of zombie movies*, albeit very well done, with the twist that our plucky band of survivors are located on the set of the reality TV show Big Brother. But mainly it's freaking scary -- watching one of the episodes on the train on the way to work in broad daylight I was getting pretty spooked.

* Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead) came out against the speed of the zombies in Dead Set, but Charlie Brooker ably defended his choices by calling Pegg a racist.
