I want to like it, but its so very unrealistic. Everyone just looks so darn pretty without electricity.
Hahaha, so true. I'm still dvrecording it and give it a couple more episodes, if it doesn't improve then I will just erase it.
Its completley unrealistic but its good to watch. I watched the first two episodes and Ill probably watch the rest of the season. I like end of the world style TV shows.
I watched the first two shows last week from my son-in-law's DVR. Now I'm recording the remainder of the season. It's entertaining.
Are they just trying to get you to start thinking about "What if..." with these shows? First the prepper series, now apocalypse shows, survivor reality shows, other shows about rogue nuclear subs, no electricity, etc.
Anybody ever listen to "Coast to Coast" on WOR AM from 1am to 5am?
"We must be the great arsenal of democracy. For us this is an emergency as serious as war itself. We must apply ourselves to our task with the same resolution, the same sense of urgency, the same spirit of patriotism and sacrifice as we would show were we at war." -- FDR December 29, 1940
"Are we at last brought to such an humiliating and debasing degradation that we cannot be trusted with arms for our own defense? Where is the difference between having our arms under our own possession and under our own direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands?"
-- Patrick Henry [3 J. Elliot, Debates in the Several State Conventions 45, 2d ed. Philadelphia, 1836]
