Is a Zombie Apocalypse Possible? Morgan Freeman Knows

| 27 Jun 2014 09:13

Through the Wormhole takes a look at the zombie epidemic that will wipe us all out.

Somehow I suspect that few of the revelations in this trailer for Morgan Freeman's Through the Wormhole episode Is a Zombie Apocalypse Possible? will be any news to you, but it's still a kicker hearing Freeman's dulcet tones informing us all just how badly we're screwed. Yep, urban centers will tumble after a week or so; yep, fleeing refugees will spread the virus world-wide. Then what? Well then we fight back, says Freeman's tame mathematician. With a cricket bat, apparently, though personally I prefer the bile jar/Molotov cocktail option.

Through the Wormhole bills itself as a series that brings together "the brightest minds and best ideas from the very edges of science ... to reveal the extraordinary truth of our Universe." It's touched on everything from aliens to parallel universes so far, and Freeman's been aboard since the beginning.

"We wanted to merge our 'Rock Stars of Science' with the superstars of pop culture," says executive producer Bernadette Mcdaid. "It's not only about making science accessible but also making people think."

Is a Zombie Apocalypse Possible? is episode 10 of the current season. The full thing's 44 minutes long, and is currently available via Amazon for a couple bucks.
