Flipping through a couple of hundred channels and struggling to find anything to watch – the title “Zombie Preppers” caught my eye. I – with much apprehension – switched to that show and caught it right from the beginning.
I am sure many of you have watched Doomday Preppers – which basically showcases numerous “preppers” who have some belief that the world is going to come to an end and they are preparing. Just like most of us, right? NO! Many of those in he show are a bit on the “nutty” side – or at least that is how they are shown. Zombie Preppers actually featured numerous people that are preparing for…..get ready….here it comes…..ZOMBIES!!!!
For the first 20 minutes or so I kept thinking to myself, “Self….this has got to be a joke.” But no, they actually featured “scientists” that made the case that a zombie apocalypse was possible.
As I watched the show I became convinced that all of the featured preppers were actors. I could be wrong but I saw so many mistakes and indications that this was just a bunch of actors. One guys was talking about how his “zombie group” was made up of ex-military and police officers. He was bragging that they are trained in tactics and firearms. Next – they show these guys attacking some pumpkins shooting at them. One guy works to get a magazine from a magazine pouch and takes FOREVER to get it out – looking down the whole time. Next – one guy is taking slow shots at a target with a S&W 22A .22LR semi-auto pistol and after a shot the slide locks back – and he pulls the trigger again. “Come on man!”
Anyways – the show definitely had some entertainment value. Obviously the Discovery Channel is really soaking the preparedness movement for all it has.
Anyone else seen it…..or a zombie?
