While looking for something to watch on youtube, I came across a fan montage of Kieren and SImon from the zombie show In the Flesh put out by the BBC.  I loved the montage so much I investigated the show and discovered the main couple/characters are Kieren & Simon, who end up a gay couple.  Ended up binge watching both seasons in one sitting.  I LOVE this show!  Anybody else a fan?  And if so, any idea if there is going to be a third season?  IT is so hard to find a good gay love story on TV or movies that has great acting and an excellent story line!

At the moment, BBC is not planning to pick up the show.  I'm not sure as to the reason because it seems to have done well on the commercial end of things.  There are a couple "Save The Show" campaigns, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

It is a great show, so I'm bummed that there won't be a third season.  Kieran is such a well-drawn character and I think that this take on the zombie genre is quite fresh.
