Zombies and how to survive them--A Guide to British Comedy

I was just watching Shaun of the Dead on the weekend, and I went to Youtube to see if I could find the opening to the Simon Pegg/Nick Frost series Spaced which seemed to have been a contributing factor in the development of the film my weekend revolved around.

I found a hidden gem(at least for the North American audience I assume). It was an extra feature from the series Danger! 50,000 Volts from 2002, which was how to survive a zombie attack. Did I happen to mention the show was hosted by Nick Frost and his guest was a Dr. Fell, played by Simon Pegg? It is fried gold it is, fried gold!

Of course, knowing how you could survive a wave of beings that only want you for your flesh and are a little slow on the uptake could probably help a lot of people survive tomorrow night, especially those making the rounds of the party circuit, so watch it and learn, because no one wants to wake up the next day with a virus. No one.

Oh, and I did find that opening scene after all.

Fab: Yeah, who knew you should avoid having open cuts when you brain a zombie with a screwdriver?

Mel, we are both fans of da pratchett... how could I not like Shaun of the Dead. I cracked my shit up when I saw the previews of it between the British release and the American one.

My oldest daughter raved forever about Shaun of the Dead. About how funny it was. So I finally watched it with her. ::blink:: Okay, I guess I didn't get it. Wasn't funny. Wasn't scary. Really disappointed.

You may all now throw tomatos at me. I hate tomatos too BTW.

Mr. Cooper: I only have these big tomatoes with big chompy teeth and catchy theme song, and I really don't think you will like them.

Dutchy: Amateur orthodonicists have that effect on people... now where did this feather come from?
