"Brains" the web series starts off with Alison (Bri Castellini) talking about her love life three years into the apocalypse. Yes, that's what she's worried about. Now this might not be something guys what to see to start off with, but it gets better. Actually, there are many things to like about this series, as it proves to be for all audiences.
It's only ten episodes, but does a good job of developing the characters in such a short time. Alison moves from complaining about guys to making her move on one. Her love interest is Damien (Marshall Taylor Thurman), who's focus seems to be only protecting the campus from zombies. Alison finds one thing they have in common, and uses that to draw closer to him.
Alison has the support of the most unique character in the series, her best friend Carl (Connor Bowen). Carl's unique because he's a friendly zombie. While most zombies are out for the brains of the college students, Carl wouldn't hurt a fly. However, when one of the students gets attacked, he's the first one to be accused forcing Alison to find the real killer.
Both the characters and story are well developed, and so are the individual episodes. Each one is done a little differently giving the audience a fresh perspective each time. It moves from inside Alison's room, to the lab, and even outdoors. One of the outdoor episodes provides a funny perspective because as Allison talks there's a host of different things happening in the distance.
While there isn't a lot of the blood and guts like a typical zombie story, there are plenty of twists and turns. There are several interesting characters that fans will be drawn to as the series goes on. Some even have big secrets that are revealed in a shocking season finale. The acting is solid, and they never give away what's coming next. The episode themselves are well shot no matter where they take place. Since this is definitely a series you should be watching, I give it 3 pools of blood.
