In a forest where any who die rise as zombies, an escaped convict does something something.

I got 1/3 in and got bored. It's too over-the-top.

Tensions between the three factions in our solar system rise with an known party's military science efforts.

Describing this one is pretty damned hard. Quite a good series, although the lead actor is just a little too young to be properly-believable. They all are, but I guess that was the target market.

A spy does spy stuff, drinks, hits on women and makes a jackass of himself while being surprisingly competent.

My later impression, from the end of the second season:

Characters were slow and stiff until they were developed more fully. When they were, a broader story arc took hold, making this show quite a bit more interesting.

The world, having gone to shit for some reason, has no guns for some reason, and, in a world nothing like Mad Max, things happen for various reasons.
