As it turns out, Black Summer and Nation occur in the same universe and the new Netflix show can be seen as a prequel. Black Summer follows Rose, portrayed by Jaime King, who is separated from her daughter at the beginning of the series and will do whatever it takes to find her.
While Nation begins in the middle of the zombie apocalypse, Black Summer starts off at the very beginning, which means that Rose has to learn how to survive in the hostile new world, alongside a group of American refugees. Even though both zombie thrillers come from the same universe, fans of Nation may feel like Black Summer lacks the dark humor that made the original series stand out.
During a panel at San Diego Comic-Con, co-creator Karl Schaefer explained that Black Summer is before the apocalypse got weird and was just scary.” Black Summer is three months in; this is the first outbreak, this is when all the sh*t's hitting the fan.
Bin stock then shared that the Black Summer team wanted to do something a little different from what they did with its predecessor. John's philosophy is that one realistic zombie is far more terrifying than a horde of them coming at you.
I have lots of friends that love Nation, but it was never mentioned in the script, and was never brought to me that it was a prequel. #1nfear1#18bj0rk#26MCG|CrisisCORE#30Sickstuff^_^*#32nfear1#43Busy P#61sMB- Its wonderful to see source players joining up with 1.6.
#50Nasluzw#51w33dh4x if source and cod players are good at cs:go that means it's not a competitive game. #52keviNyU#54lemSa#53luz blue#55komOdo Login or register to add your comment to the discussion.

With The Walking Dead being the most popular show on television, it’s surprising that it’s taken this long for another network to try to bank on the success. The world has been overrun with the undead and a small group of survivors comes together to try to find and distribute a cure.
It’s always been hard to pick one favorite show with all the great content currently running, but for the past year or two, I’ve been able to say that The Walking Dead is first in my book. Unfortunately, NATION doesn’t even attempt to maintain that aspect of The Walking Dead, to the point of having one character say out loud that he hates moral dilemmas in the pilot episode.
Lot happens in a short span of time, and a number of individuals die, including one I really did not expect yet, based on the press for the show and the story structure. It’s definitely going to be a gory series with shock-factor scenes, including one involving an infant, and one primarily concerned with pumping the adrenaline of both the characters and the audience.
Being on a television budget, it can’t reach the special effects levels of a theatrical release, so it’ll always be destined to be inferior, making one think twice before sitting down to watch it. One of the main players, Citizen Z (DJ Quails, Legit), is in a government base somewhere with access to radio and computer equipment.
Charles Garrett (Tom Everett Scott, Southland) is a typical leading man, so maybe he’ll stick around for a bit. In a crowded television landscape, and with a much better product on AMC, I don’t know why this series would gain a big following, but I guess we’ll see when NATION premieres this Friday at 10 p.m.
Jerome Wetzel CHIEF TELEVISION CRITIC | Creator of and writer for It's All Been Done Radio Hour live show and podcast. A voracious reader wanting to tell stories of his own, Jerome began writing around the age of 8 and hasn’t stopped, both original works and television reviews.
Favorite current shows include The Walking Dead, Jessica Jones, Flaked, Outlander, and Archer. No one was too concerned that she wouldn't be able to bounce back from whatever career setback or marital infraction was thrown at her.
He's been a hip-hop-and-beyond mogul for decades and, celebrating his 51st birthday Dec. 4, has amassed too much cachet in the music and business worlds to be threatened by just any old scandal. The billionaire would've been maligned, pretty fairly, as the root of all their troubles, and then eventually the world would've moved on.
The savvy couple had winked at their checkered love story with their tour announcement, setting it to Marcia Aitken's “I'm Still in Love With You,” the soulful strains of the reggae tune a nod to their musical influences, the artists who helped pave the way for them and, of course, the not-too-long-ago speculation that Bey and Jay were about to go bust. But despite the millions of records sold and dollars earned, the carefully orchestrated Instagram posts and the political activism, at the heart of the mega-brand they've been steadily building for the better part of two decades are two people who've reached the top of the mountain together, but who have also weathered heartache, loss and public embarrassment.
They first crossed paths when Beyoncé was about 18 and Jay- Z would have just turned 30, when Bey's father and manager Matthew Knowles arranged for her to appear on the 2000 track “I Got That” by Tamil, who was on Jay's Roc-A-Fella Records. They actually shared their first magazine cover (along with 10 other people, including Beck, a midriff-flashing Gwen Stefan and still-with-us David Bowie and Chris Cornell) in 2001, for Vanity Fair's music issue.
Jay told VF in 2013 that he and Bey “were just beginning to try to date each other” when the cover was shot. Though Bey has spent pretty much the entirety of her adult life devoted to Mr. Shawn “Jay- Z Carter, she had a non-famous longtime boyfriend whom, unsurprisingly, she grew apart from as Destiny's Child took off, and during her short window of single hood she managed to be linked to everyone from Kobe Bryant to Mos Def to Na's, though she didn't actually date any of them.
Jay said that he first recruited Bey for “03 Bonnie and Clyde” “because I wanted a singer on the song, and I knew one who was exceptional.” “I am trying to date, but there's no one special,” Bey said in July 2002, according to the Jay- Z biography Empire State of Mind.
Asked if they were dating in real life, Jay told Playboy in 2003, “She's beautiful. They were photographed in the South of France, bringing toys to kids in need on Christmas, courtside watching the Knicks, at the Vanity Fair Oscar party...
They finally made their red carpet debut at the 2004 MTV Video Music Awards (seven years before Bey would memorably reveal her baby bump at the VMS), confirming one of the lesser-kept secrets in Hollywood. At the time she was working on her 2006 album B'Day, which featured “Irreplaceable” and would tease the ultra-independent, nobody-will-ever-hold-me-down side of Beyoncé who would have her formal coming-out party on 2008's I Am... Sasha Fierce.
Throughout her solo career she's also explored the enjoyment she's found in treating her man like a king. 2013's Beyoncé would in turn make marriage sound as hot as any courtship, with the artist detailing more explicitly than ever what sort of activities helped keep the romance alive.
But in 2005, she told Vanity Fair about the juxtaposition of themes in her music, “I grew up. In the absence of many details to go on, there was speculation on any given day that Bey and Jay were engaged, secretly married or possibly expecting.
At the end of the day, “there's no way I can know every person in the world, and people just know you from what they read,” Beyoncé concluded. In 2007, Jay- Z ducked all girlfriend questions during a Rolling Stone interview, only saying, “It's difficult enough to have a relationship with your relatives involved.
When they did finally decide to get married, on April 4, 2008, they kept their New York nuptials as private as possible. In fact, it would be about five years before Beyoncé decided to start sharing photos and videos from that night.
They opted for matching “IV” (4) tattoos on their fingers instead of wedding rings because “people put too much emphasis on that. About the common problem that afflicts so many busy couples, the newlywed told Marie Claire, “We try to sync our calendars.
I started working on my tour a year ago just to make sure that I had time at home. But they tried again and daughter Blue Ivy Carter was born on Jan. 7, 2012, forever making the point of the whole thing about family.
She was also asserting herself more in the political arena, speaking up about issues plaguing her fellow women aside from flaky, commitment-phobic, deadbeat men. In the 2013 HBO film Beyoncé:Life Is But a Dream, she says, “I truly believe that women should be financially independent of their men.
They opened the 2014 Grammys together in January with a sultry, swoon-worthy performance, whether Beyoncé meant to have wet hair or not the only lingering mystery. According to Becoming Beyoncé, Orange Knowles, despite being five years younger, was always fiercely protective of her big sister's feelings, especially when it came to men.
“He has his nerve, throwing you shade,” Orange reportedly said in front of some of their friends, referring to Bey's ex-boyfriend before she met Jay. On May 12, 2014, less than four months after the heat from the stage melted the Grammys audience (at home as well as in person), TMZ acquired some security footage from an elevator at the Standard Hotel in NYC, where a Met Gala after-party had been underway a week prior.
Two days before the TMZ story broke, Bey and Jay had attended the Brooklyn Nets' home game at Barclays Center, looking as if they didn't have a care in the world. And just hours after the story broke, throwing the Beehive into a right frenzy, there they were again sitting courtside.
“As a result of the public release of the elevator security footage from Monday, May 5th, there has been a great deal of speculation about what triggered the unfortunate incident,” Beyoncé, Jay- Z and Orange said in a joint statement released three days after the video went viral. It seemed unbelievable at the moment that whatever ailed them could've been cured so quickly, but they've left no breadcrumbs to the contrary.
The whole Carter family was at Orange's wedding that November when she married Alan Ferguson. Blood and the bonds of marriage (Bey and Jay's, at least) proved thicker than gossip.
But whenever the rumors that the couple were headed for a split got a little too heated, Beyoncé would dial them back by posting new family photos on her website, which became the go-to, must-check-every-day destination for updates on the lives of Bey, Jay and Blue. In May 2015, a year after the Incident, Beyoncé attended the Met Gala half-naked, showing up late enough to make the splashiest entrance and command all the attention.
February 2016 was “Formation” month, with Beyoncé stealing the Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show right out from under Coldplay, protesting police violence against Black people in the song's music video and drawing some accusations that she had an anti-police agenda (sort of like when she was promoting too much monogamous, marital sex for some critics' taste a few years prior; or when she and Jay- Z went to Cuba in 2013 and some assumed their friend President Barack Obama had pulled strings to get them there). She announced plans for her Formation World Tour, and 2016 was shaping up to be a very good year.
But overnight, the shocking events of 2014 would come rushing back in a flood of intimate artistry in April 2016 when Beyoncé released Lemonade, first in short film form on HBO featuring a fever dream of symbolic imagery, fellow luminaries like Serena Williams, a damning indictment of Jay- Z's bad behavior and an emotional tale of betrayal, sorrow, revenge and forgiveness. Speculation that Rachel Roy was Becky with the good hair, ” mentioned on the blistering “Sorry,” spurred enough online abuse within 24 hours that Roy was prompted to tweet, “I respect love, marriages, families and strength.
When Blue Ivy was about 1 1/2 years old, in 2013, Beyoncé admitted on Good Morning America that she had become “very protective” of her child. “I just want to make sure that she can have a healthy, safe, normal life...in the back of my mind, she's my priority.
And now her world has expanded to include Blue's little brother, Sir, and sister, Rum, born on June 13. Then our world expanded to include Jay- Z's confessional 4:44, that long-awaited, so-called response to Lemonade that had reportedly been in the works for years.
On the title track, Jay- Z rapped, “I suck at love, I think I need a do-over / I will be emotionally available if I invited you over / I stew over what if you over my s--t?” Jay told the New York Times in 2017 that he and his wife didn't sit down and expressly decide, OK, we're going to share our problems with the world in these two albums.
Jay himself said that, by the time their respective albums came out, it was more as if he and his wife were in the eye of the hurricane while the storm swirled around them. On stage, he dedicated his award to the “strong women” in the house he grew up in, as well as the woman whom he shares several homes with now.
