It's really got a Jericho feel about it with a touch of "The Postman" but I'll continue to watch. I love this crap. The lead girls are cute but none of them would have hair like that, it's sort of silly. They're living in post apocolyptia and have hair that looks like it's from a Vidal Sassoon commercial.


Their look may be unrealistic, but I would rather have them look like that than all hairy and haggard, as would probably be the case in real life. :icon_mrgreen:

I tried watching the second episode the other night. The opening sword fight was enough for me, changed over to something else.

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?

"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?"

I'm reading that "Last Resort" may be a better TV show but I've not watched it either.

"The right of self-defense never ceases." - James Monroe

"The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of the republic; since it offers a strong moral check against usurpation and arbitrary power of the rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them." - James Madison, wrote in his "Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States" (1833)

I enjoy it. It gets me to thinking...

I recorded it to watch tonight while working on my tax return.

Season 1 was on demand.... But ended April 1st.
I caught up on the first 11 episodes in 3 days.....
Can be a little corny at times, and not the greatest show.... But not bad.
I enjoyed watching it.

.....with just enough "Hunger Games" girl,horny guy and Bow action to entice some teen viewers. I tried but just couldn't. Digging "Vikings" though.

Too unrealistic. All their clothes look fresh, with modern stretchy fabrics and bright colors. The modern crossbows look like they just came off the shelf. And really, a musket? Then there is the locket thingy they keep flashing around, like its some kind of magical talisman. Really,.. magic and voodoo? Bleh

They need to learn some lessons from Walking Dead IMO.

Initially, I thought it was totally unrealistic because how could just a power outage destroy everything that badly? I mean seriously, end of the world because of a stupid power outage? I had more faith in humanity than that.

Then Sandy hit, and I realized the two-fold problem. (1) Can't pump gas and people freak out (2) People can't eat. Fridges stop working so food spoils, and all the modern electric stoves/ovens don't work. I'd never worried about this because we still use natural gas, but Sandy was a real wakeup call.

Revolution doesn't seem too far off in that case. (Except of course for the laundry, hygiene, and inexplicable sword skill problems....)

Notice how the militia (dictator ran mafia, not a freedom militia) are the only ones with guns. Possession of a firearm is punishable by death.
Kind of shows you where we may be in 25yrs...... Or sooner.
The resistance (terrorist to the evil militia) fly the American flag and it is considered the "rebel" flag....
I can see Obama's label being that flag one day..... Over my dead body
