Eve (Aqueela Zoll) wouldn’t date co-worker Andy (Andy Goldenberg) if he were the last man on earth. But what if circumstances – for instance, a zombie apocalypse – actually made Andy the last man alive? Would Eve change her mind? That’s the premise of Bad Timing.
It’s nerdy Andy’s lucky day when he faints at the sight of zombies running amok and is saved by his dream girl, Eve. Her quick thinking gets them both, blood-covered and in shock, to a refuge in the desert. Andy sees this as his big chance to score with Eve, but she’s more preoccupied with staying alive. Andy has the unfortunate habit of passing out at the sight of blood, so his usefulness is limited to meal preparation. He stares moony-eyed at Eve, makes her laugh, and hopes that he can wear down her defenses enough to make her love him. Just when Eve and Andy seem like they’re on the verge of re-populating the world, her hunky boyfriend Kevin (Michael Foster) shows up looking like he’s straight from the cover of a romance novel. Kevin and Eve pick up where they left off, dashing Andy’s romantic hopes.
A combination of impending doom, romantic triangle and unrequited love make for a refreshing comedic take on the popular zombie genre. Scripted by siblings Lauren and Andy Goldenberg, and directed by Brandon Ravet, each short episode is perfectly timed to keep you wanting more. A second season is in the works, and after seeing the cliffhanger finale of the first season, I can hardly wait! [**Update** Season 2 is out & just as terrific as S.1!]
