'League of STEAM' battles the undead

Although we've been aware of The League of STEAM for some time now, the group of adventurers, creature hunters and paranormal researchers have been especially busy kicking all kinds of ass lately.

These STEAM (Supernatural and Troublesome Ectoplasmic Apparition Management) punks appear at conventions in character and also produce fun, clever webisodes that has them facing off against all manner of phenomena. And they know their pop-culture; they've injected a little STEAM into Doctor Who (with “Bitter Gnomes and Gardens," an homage to the Weeping Angels "Blink" episode) and Ghost Busters (the "Musical Miscreants" episode). The team has also enlisted the help of famous faces, such as Doug Jones (Hellboy, Pan's Labriynth), and appeared in the Panic! at the Disco video "The Ballad of Mona Lisa."

In the latest installment, the season finale "Dead End," the The League of STEAM is lured into a deadly trap against zombies. Will they conquer the undead horde, or are they doomed to become a zombie's afternoon snack? Guest starring Ozman Sirgood (The Hot Chick, The Bold & The Beautiful), only time - about seven minutes of it, in fact - will tell.
