“The Nerdist” Presents Karen Gillan, Zombie

karengillannerdistzombieThe next episode of The Nerdist on BBC America is all about the coming zombie apocalypse, with testimony from guests Robert Kirkman and Michael Rooker — oh, Merle, we hardly knew ye — from, of course, The Walking Dead, plus the above, in which Karen Gillan becomes zombified in a spot for “z’Ombéal.” Here’s a promo for you from BBC America:

And, yes, Jonah Ray offers his expert advice on the best zombie weaponry. You should watch. Saturday, April 6th, 10/9c, after new episodes of Doctor Who and Orphan Black on BBC America (and Sunday 7/6c/4p on Space in Canada, and, yes, we’ve determined that despite the syndicated TV listings and channel guide descriptions, they’re running the new episodes). Join us, won’t you?

    If Karen Gillan is going to be part of the Nerdist Universe, then I’ld like to pitch an idea for Season 2 of Nerdterns:
    KG is brought in as a consultant for Dr WHO companion training. KG will be like the Drill Sargeant in Full Metal Jacket. She’ll put the Nerterns into alien encounter scenarios to see who can make it to the next level of Nerdternship.
    Bleah! The idea sounded better in my head.

    Karen continues to be my favorite redhead. It was hilarious, great stuff! Love it that she did it for the site/show!
