The post-apocalyptic suburban zombie crime procedural CBS doesn't want you to see

Babylon_l_2Gosh, how come CBS didn’t pick up drama pilot Babylon Fields this season? Who doesn’t love post-apocalyptic procedural crime dramas featuring zombies who’ve returned from the dead to take up their former lives in the suburbs? (Maybe the network thought — what with ABC’s Pushing Daisies and CBS’ own Moonlight — that there were enough new series about undead crimefighters already.) TV Week has dug up from the television graveyard three clips from Babylon Fields, so you can get a taste of what we’re missing. Catch the second clip, in which two zombie guys discuss the erectile benefits of rigor mortis, and lament the fact that, without this show, we’re just not getting enough necrophilia jokes in primetime.
