For anyone unfamiliar with the series, In the Flesh is a BBC television program about a queer un-dead teenager sprung to life after a zombie apocalypse. It approaches the zombie genre with more humanity than typical series as those who rose from the dead are rehabilitated back into society as Partially Deceased Syndrome sufferers. Many characters, living, dead, or undead, suffer from PTSD, anxiety and depression in a very real and human way, as well as the main character being a young gay man who killed himself at age eighteen and is dealing with the repercussions of that within his family. Its full of drama, action, sorrow, family, romance, and most importantly (at least to this blog) gayness, but in a way where it isn’t the main focal point of the story, making the character real and relateable.

Unfortunately, the series was cancelled after just two seasons, with a very open-ended ending and it very much needs a final season or a finale film. My suggestion is that all of you please check this out (even if you’ve seen it already), because Hulu, Netflix, etc check online viewership and have the ability to bring a series back from the dead (haha), they’ve done similar with things such as The Mindy Project and more.

Please consider giving In the Flesh a watch! If you’re a fan of sci-fi fantasy like Harry Potter, Doctor Who or Supernatural and a fan of LGBTQ drama programs like Please Like Me, Banana and The Fosters this might be just the show you’ve been waiting for!

A new study shows that ads on Netflix would be a disastrous idea

In a survey of more than 1,200 people on Reddit, AllFlicks asked respondents if they would rather pay more for Netflix or see ads while they were streaming, and found that 90% would prefer a price hike instead of ads. Mic even obtained a spreadsheet of comments left on the survey, and they are more revealing than the statistics.
