Day of the Dead, Ep 1×01, “The Thing in the Hole” aired Oct 15, 2021
A George Romero classic claws its way from the grave for a re-telling of a very familiar tale. Syfy’s new series, ‘Day of the Dead’ has finally arrived. This time the dead has arisen in the same town of Mawinhakin. The day started out promising enough for many of the townspeople. Sarah Blackwood is minding her business at her new job when she finds herself lowered into a hole. Of course, she finds a not quite dead body. Mayor Bowman is up for re-election and she’s feeling confident. Jai’s maybe getting married and definitely taking control of his life. Maybe.
Hit play and listen in as Brad and Cort Ep 1×01, “The Thing in the Hole”. Lauren is making a fresh start of things. Sure her boss is a pervert, but karma comes to pay him a visit with a quickness. Like Jai, she’s taking control in her life and trying to do better for herself. The girl is clearly a badass, as becomes apparent during her battle with Bobby’s recently deceased Peepaw. Who had the best zombie takedown of the episode? Was it Lauren with that mic stand or Cam with the mower? Which was your favorite Easter egg from the Romero-verse? Which character are you hoping survives all the chaos to come?
