Because we already have the main characters introduced in season 1, Season 2 is free to explore the impact of living after a zombies arose.
Season 2 brings up the realistic politics of when a population demands repayment for the sins/crimes of those restored to "life".
Amy's health becomes a serious concern, bringing fear and (possibly) hope.
We learn the religious side of the Undead Prophet as well as Simon's back story.
Even Maxine, the villain, isn't a mere caricature.

Please do not write off this show as a "zombie show" or "horror show". In fact I believe anyone beginning to watch this show desiring to see either of those genres strictly would be very disappointed, this is not The Walking Dead. It is much, much more important.

"In the Flesh" is about mental health, disability, and sexual orientation. It was about love: familial and romantic. It is about fanaticism in beliefs from government, religion, and cult figures. It is about guilt, regret, and fear. It's about standing up for yourself, standing up for others, about self discovery and self acceptance.

It has whole and realized characters, both major and minor. It has a beautiful, haunting soundtrack.

I am honestly disinterested in horror, and I avoided In the Flesh from the few advertisements I had seen, for too long. I finally gave it a try and in a single episode I was convinced. I've now seen all nine episodes that currently exist four times, and each time I am touched by another aspect of this complex, enchanting story.

Now my only fear is that it may never get a third season without ever failing. Please watch, enjoy, and express your love so we can all see more of this masterpiece.

In the Flesh returns for Season 2! I was very happy to see this season features six episodes instead of three, because I cannot get enough of this show. I didn't think this was possible, but I loved this season even more than the first. Season 2 introduces new characters that bring with them heightened tension and mystery. While we get more background information about the Rising and PDS treatment centers by the way of Simon Monroe, who is a welcomed addition to the show. At the end of the season we're left with more questions than answers, and I absolutely can't wait to see what happens next.

If you like In the Flesh, please show your support and purchase the DVDs. We need to show the BBC how much we love this show. Another way to show your support is to leave a review there on Amazon and in the BBC's shop.

This is not your typical zombie story. Keeping in mind this isn't about virus made zombies with a kill or be killed gore fest, it'll give you a chance to fall in love.

I'm not one for dramas, but I LOVE the thought invoking plot and characters. This series explores the anthropology of What If?

What if we found a cure for zombies? Nothing permanent, but what if you could treat the undead and they could be humanized again? Bigotry, racism, homophobia and all those nasty tidbits from the human past is raised against a new victim.

But aside from all the drama brought on by a terrible past, the characters of this show is what makes it for me. Kieren Walker is refreshing as a protagonist in that he wants to do the right thing, maybe fall in love and be with his family again, but takes absolutely no bulls*** from anybody.

Amy Dyer is unforgettable and creates words you find at the tip of your tongue everyday.

The second season threw me a bit with the religious overtones, but I still can't wait until a (hopefully) third season!

It's definitely worth a shot. Especially if you're a fan of the zombie mythology. I've already started watching a second time in case I missed anything the first time.

This show rocks!! As a big fan of Walking Dead I was excited to find this show. It's so much more then a zombie show as the drama and emotionality of In The Flesh is over the top good. I don't want to give away anything about this show but the whole premise is so unique in the zombie genre. This show is really nothing like the Walking Dead but I love this show. The characters have so much depth and the storyline is so original.

I don't have much to say about the content of the series, except that I love the fresh take on zombies it offers. I had initially ignored the series at the BBC had begun airing right after they aired the last episode of "Being Human," another British-produced supernatural show well worth trying out. Luckily, I saw some posts about the show on Tumblr and tried it out and was hooked!

Most zombie tales have zombies rising end civilization, but in this series, civilization marches on. The risen dead have been treated and rehabiliated to enter society again. The show centers on Kieren Walker and his family and friends in the little town of Roarton. In Season 2, the PDS (Partially Deceased Syndrome) sufferers are forced into a community service scheme as the Undead Prophet tries to bring about the Second Rising.

I do want to comment on the presentation on DVD. Amazon's picture is incorrect in that it states it's a 3 disc set when it's actually just 2. (The copy I received showed the correct number of discs on the case.) I'm rather disappointed that this series is not being offered on Blu-Ray in the US. I understand that it's not a major show like Sherlock, Doctor Who or even Being Human and Merlin, but one would imagine that the option would exist.

You only get the show on these DVDs, but it's good enough to warrant the purchase price (which I expect will go down over time). In addition to the episodes, you also get subtitles in Englsh as well as a standard stereo track. The menus are a little more detailed than the disc for Season 1 (the main menu contained "Play All," "Episode 1," "Episode 2," "Episode 3" and a submenu for subtitles), branching off the episode selection to a submenu as well this time.

In any case, I'm very glad we're getting these released here at all and sincerely hope we get a third season to wrap things up!
