Set ninety-seven years after a nuclear war has destroyed civilization, when a spaceship housing humanity's lone survivors sends one hundred juvenile delinquents back to Earth, in hopes of possibly re-populating the planet.
Having gone missing seven years ago, the previously blind Prairie returns home, now in her twenties with her sight restored. While many believe she is a miracle, others worry that she could be dangerous.
The world as we know it has ended. Six years after a brutal virus carried by the rain wiped out almost all humans in Scandinavia, two Danish siblings emerge from the safety of their bunker to find all remnants of civilization gone. Soon they join a group of young survivors and together set out on a danger-filled quest through abandoned Scandinavia, searching for any sign of life. Set free from their collective past and societal rules the group has the freedom to be who they want to be. In their struggle for survival, they discover that even in a post-apocalyptic world there's still love, jealousy, coming of age, and many of the problems they thought they'd left behind with the disappearance of the world they once knew.Written by
Prepare To Get Angry In The First Episode At Child Characters Doing Stupid Things
I'm only just now finishing up the first episode and I came to read the reviews to see if I should bother watching more.
Everything starts off just fine and the big event takes place in the first few minutes. Then we have one young boy do something stupid, followed by an adult reacting by doing something even more stupid. A few minutes later, the young boy and his sister, both make yet another really stupid move.
It's as if the writers couldn't figure out how to advance the story without stupid moves needing to happen. You'll know what I'm talking about, right away. After said stupid moves, we're left with the characters wanting to urgently do something that any real human being would know not to do. Again, the writers urge the characters to try and do something even though, we the viewers, know good and well, that the right course of action, would be to not do anything and just stay where they are. But of course, that wouldn't make for a very interesting story to have the characters do the right thing, the smart thing and the safe thing, even though they know it.
I'll give it through episode two to see if things continue along the same lines.
