With a lot of hope from the fans, zombies are starting to break their way into the mainstream media. If AMC’s The Walking Dead hitting TV boxes across the country in about a week will have as much of an impact as their planning, then zombie fans have nothing to worry about.
As usual, here to play the advocate for all things nerdy and obscure to a network television audience, Community is getting in the Halloween spirit this Thursday night with a special zombie-themed episode. Here’s the breakdown.
Pierce (Chevy Chase) and a few other Greendale students ingest a biohazard substance at the school Halloween Party, causing them to exhibit flu-like symptoms and begin turning into zombies. It is up to the rest of the gang to save themselves and the school when Dean Pelton (Jim Rash) locks them in with the zombie-infected student body.
Awesome enough for you? We didn’t think so. Check out a few clips from the episode that set it all up after the jump, and be sure to catch Community this Thursday at 8pm ET.
