Survivors Cancelled

BBC has cancelled the post-civ collapse drama, Survivors, due to low ratings. I am a little bummed but not too surprised. The show follows a group of English survivors after a flu pandemic wipes out 90-99% of the Earth's population. It is an amazing show as it puts average naive Britons in realistic situations of a world after society collapses.

The series begins with a sort of 28 Days Later sans zombies vibe. It progresses to a dramatic thriller that, at times, feels like Cormac McCarthy's world of The Road (although not as bleak). I highly recommend the series to anyone interested in systems collapse, post-apocalyptical scenarios, survivalism, and/or just a good drama with a lot of character development.

The dvd's will be available in the US later this month.

keep me posted when the DVDs come out - although I'll be bummed at the lack of resolution!

Comes out 4/27. I am considering purchase.

A friend of ours has the series downloaded as well as the original 1970's series it is based on.

You will love the show!
