You don't need to have seen it to understand that the only individual who needs to be in the dark is the main guy.

You only have to understand the most basic premise of the programme - which you obviously do not. Strange really, given the links already posted in this thread and the self evident fact that you have access to the internet.

One wonders why you would be commenting on something you understand nothing about. Although to be fair, this forum wouldn't last ten seconds if we all adhered to that rule.

Again, I don't think I could have been more clear about the lack of having seen it.

However how many people here have cousins that have appeared in it?

Again, I could hardly have been more clear about the fact that you absolutely did not need to see the show to be able to understand the issues.

We appear to have reached something of an impasse.

I enjpoyed it. I thought the protagonist was going to collapse with all of that hyperventilating. I'm pretty sure he was 100% convinced it was for real.

LOL .. raver, shut your mouth for 2 seconds and listen ..

Only ONE guy on the show was 'hypnotised' .. your cousin is talking sh*t to you.

There is no reason anyone else would be. Unless he hypnotised her for some reason outside of the broadcast .. "Put under his voodoo" could be a euphemism .. :p
All the above is just advice .. you can do whatever the f*ck you wana do!

It did seem odd that he didn't ask any questions. It'd been two weeks between the meteor shower and him coming round in a hospital. Food in the room was in a mouldy state indicating he'd been alone for some time yet he never questioned the fact that he was not on an IV, had no stubble nor had he fouled himself in that time.

Also, if it were 'real' then what was c4's plan in the event that he armed himself and defended himself against the infected? Personally my first actions would have been to secure mymimmediate environment and source water, warmth and a weapon so what would they have done if he'd clubbed a 'zombie' to death?

As a piece of tv I enjoyed it and it caused a few discussions but feel it created a lot of sceptical questions as well

At last. A reasoned response. I totally agree.

Perhaps the reason why the Russian idiot's sister was hypnotised is so that she would agree to clean the sh@t out of our protagonists pants and keep him cleanly shaven during the two week hiatus between us seeing him go under and come around again.

So, an interesting programme but totally made up bullsh@t none the less.

Glad that was sorted out.

Next.

You and your sister?

From the looks of things, Brown needn't have bothered hipnotising her - she looks like she'd have discharged her duties willingly and without question.
