    Thanks so much Dan!! Even though we didn't win we are continuing our momentum and moving forward with our concept and adjusting it with all the great feedback we have been getting. We will continue to post updates and new material on our facebook and twitter.

    this is quite similar to several other plots out there. some of the ideas are funny but do not seem original. maybe things will progress in a more interesting way.

    Hi Kathleen sorry for this late reply, well, granted the survival plot aspect has been done with zombies so it is how we tell the story. The flashbacks are one idea and so forth. It is like Tarantino, all his films are homages as he says to films he grew up watching it is just how he tells the story in his own way which makes them great. There are other projects in this competition where I have seen before, it is just in how you tell them.

    Zombies and Stonners? Sign me up. Funny show with great cast. Hoping this shit makes it on the CBC or any other network. What a great concept and take on a genre that needs life that is totally opposite the walking dead. Good luck guys.

    I love this concept. Zombies are all the craze and their isn't much comedy shows that show a cast like this. Very diverse and funny as hell. I'm just thinking of all the funny things that can happen on this show and I'm already loving it. Hope you guys make it to the top 15.

    I just think that this is not very funny even though for the most part it is well done from a quality of filming viewpoint. I am not sure if it is a question of the performers or writing or looking at all of it as a whole or it could be the zombie saturation the other comment talked about.

    This show looks pretty funny, but I agree with the comment below about the under use of what could be a kick ass female protagonist. Also, after having seen the differentiator video, I'm still not totally clear about how this series is very unique in its take on the zombie comedy craze.

    These guys are funny and I dont know why people say it can't go anywhere in terms of concept. I mean yeah the walking dead became a bit boring for some but a) first it was an amazingly successful comic and show and b) this is not the walking dead!

    So I think that you have an interesting concept but I'm not seeing it developed enough at this stage of the competition. I would move past describing the show to us and do a 90 second bit that shows us why its fun, exciting and funny.

    I wish the lady had more of a crucial role, right now it's pretty boy's club-esque. But still, as far as zombie shows go, a comedic theme might do really well. I actually laughed at the scene where the car blows up, nice one.

    Hey Snap! Thank you for your feedback! I'm thee lady in the series, and i do have a much larger role. I play one of the lead characters these zombie fanboys look up to. I train them and teach them techniques how to survive. This series has so much potential for growth, especially adding more characters along the way, including more kickass women!. - Team Wasted

    Interesting concept, but I was hoping this video would explain to me more how your concept is different than Shaun of the Dead. After watching your first video I made that connection quite quickly between the shows (not that that's a bad thing, Shaun of the Dead was a great/hilarious movie), I was just expecting something different that's all. Good work with everything you've done so far, and good luck in the competition!

    Hi Christina yeah Shaun of the Dead is a big influence on us. There is so much to Wasted that it is hard to put into 90 seconds as we cover everything from music, videogames, comics, tv, movies, anime, into this show but we just want to give the basics first. Get us into the Top 50 we'll show you more :)

    I'm tired of zombies...Overdone material. You guys are great actors, super funny and you have a talented camera crew. But I'm not sold on zombie comedy being different. Especially if you're just going to spoof zombie horror films for the whole series.

    Hi Ben, thank you for the kind words. The intention is not to spoof zombie horror films, it is to create a comedic version of The Walking Dead. Think if Shaun of the Dead was a series. I understand that, yes, there is a lot of zombie material, but, it can be done right. And the best zombie material is about the people involved, not the actual zombies.

    Hi Monique thank you for engaging and commenting. Yes many people like Zombies and many do not. All the best shows & movies about Zombies, like The Walking Dead, are really about the people. That is our focus as mentioned our show is a mix of Modern Family, Pineapple Express and Walking Dead. It is about the people who live in this zombie world.
