Trivia

When Alicia is watching her neighbor cry at her party she says "it's her party, she'll cry if she wants to" she was referring to the 1963 song "It's My Party" by Lesley Gore. The song is about a teenage girl who's boyfriend disappears one day and then shows up awhile later at her birthday party with another girl. The song's chorus "It's my party I'll cry if I want to" became a popular pop culture reference starting in the 1960's to describe being humiliated and miserable during a situation that is supposed to make you happy.

The Zombie Epidemic Begins
21 December 2015 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In Los Angeles, Alicia goes to Matt's house and finds that he is sick. Soon Madison, Travis and Nick arrive and ask her to leave Matt and they go home. Nick has a crisis due to the withdrawal and Madison goes to the school trying to find some medicine to calm him down. In the school, she meets Tobias and gives his knife back. When she sees Principal Artie, Tobias asks her to run but Madison decides to talk to him and finds that he is a zombie. Meanwhile Travis drives to the house of his ex-wife Liza and convinces her to seek Chris out. They find him in the middle of a riot and they seek shelter in a house of a stranger.

"So Close, Yet So Far" is a good episode specially the segment with Madison. Travis and his family is kind of pointless and boring, but Madison makes worth watching this show. Now the zombie epidemic has begun and the series is promising. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "So Close, Yet So Far"
