In the Flesh (BBC America, Thursday-Saturday, 10/9C) does something no other zombie movie or series has done – it not only postulates a viral cause for zombies but also provides a situation in which an effective treatment has been found and looks at what kind of situations that might create. It is, by turns, effectively creepy and poignant – and not necessarily for the reasons you might expect.
