Storyline

'Where the virus came from, no-one knew... from deepest space, bacterial warfare or some nation's scientific experiments gone horrifically wrong? All the Adults are gone... All the teachers are gone... All peace and regular meals are gone... Just tribal instincts and war paint survive. If survival depends on not getting caught by the evil Locusts or rival cyber gang Demon Dogs or just finding your next meal... then the only option is to start your own Tribe.' Written by Anonymous

Mad Max meets The Lord of the Flies
18 February 2001 | by (Illinois, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a fascinating look into a world where all the adults have died from a mysterious virus, and the kids are left to fend for themselves. The remaining teens and pre-teens have formed tribes in order to survive. They must forage for whatever food and medicine they can find, and form new relationships both for protection and companionship. The Tribe focuses on a group that has settled in the local mall, and have come to call themselves the "Mall Rats". They hide out in the mall, hoping to avoid the violence of the other tribes such as the Demon Dogs, and the Locusts. Eventually their dream of building a new world where the tribes can work together in peace, force them out of the safety of their hiding place.

For being a such a futuristic sort of show, The Tribe is surprisingly able to address current issues that face today's young people. Bulimia, teen pregnancy, peer pressure, and alcoholism are all subjects that some of the characters of this new world must face.

The Tribe is extremely well done. The story is fascinating, the acting is first rate, and the young cast is destined for great things. I fell in love with The Tribe from the very first episode, and it continues to get better and better.
