Freakish (Hulu) -- Horror Series -- Series Thread -- Premieres 10/10/16

During Saturday detention, bells ring signaling a containment drill and evacuation - not out of the ordinary for a town with a large chemical plant. The 20 students and the basketball coach retreat to the school fallout shelter for the duration of the drill. Only it's not a drill... When the sirens stop and they return to the school lobby, they find their town has been decimated by an explosion. They see no signs of life outside their high school's front doors. More frightening, those who were not in the bunker appear to be infected...

Just finished watching this. It's like an ABC Family version of The Walking Dead. The violence is PG, there's no nudity, and I don't remember much foul language.

It's not worth the time. The first 2-3 episodes were slightly interesting. After that it just dragged on without much happening.

There were a few things that really bugged me:

The kids all walk around the school armed with something, because you never know when a zombie might pop out. So what happens when they come across a zombie? They drop the weapon and run away. It's not just one stupid person that does it. This happens like five times in the show.

The other thing that bugged me (last episode spoiler):

It ends on a friggin' cliffhanger. Like I'm gonna sit through another season of this crap.

The first episode almost sold me; but I’ll trust Dave and stop now.
