.. The Blurst of Times: Highschool of the Dead

Having the Hanta Virus (or something slightly less lethal) all week has provided me with ample opportunities to explore the depths of Netflix instant in between coughing fits while hoped up on Nyquil and codine. With "..the Blurst of Times" I'll tell you all about whatever horrible abortion of a TV show I watched the night before (or in this case last week).

Highschool of the Dead had me at the title. Two things you probably already know about me: I love Zombies and over the last 2 years have watched almost every episode of 90210. Even the really terrible post college ones when Brandon leaves and they bring back Dylan. Woof, those episodes are terrible.

Anyhoo, Highschool of the Dead (yes it's supposed to be misspelled) is about a bunch of kids dealing with a zombie invasion during 4th period. The show throws you right into the action, with a small group of kids already on the run from a zombie horde. The animation is pretty tight, they cut a lot of corners by using these sort of styalized still shots. You've seen them if you've watched any adult swim. The kind where a character covered in blood stands all heroic with just a small lock of hair moving in the breeze. The English dub is pretty good too, the acting isn't the best but whoever translated the show did a decent job.

It's been a while since I've really watched any anime, but I don't remember them being this jiggly. Seriously the boobs they are a bouncing in this. There's no nudity or sex, at least not yet but sometimes it feels like I'm watching Dead or Alive Zombie Beach Volleyball the movie. I think if my wife saw me watching it she'd just point and laugh at me.

On a scale of 1 to Battle Royale, Highschool of the Dead scores a baseball bat to the side of the head. It's not a headshot but it more than gets the job done.

I watched 2-Headed Shark Attack last weekend. On a scale of Brooke Hogan to Carmen Electra it scored a Charlie O'Connell.

P.S. If biology students looked like the ones in this movie I'
