Good quality show
13 December 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A very good show but as a fan of the original 70's Survivors I am finding the new version misses the mark for two reasons (A)The original outbreak of flu seemed to wipe out 99% of the population in a day!! Even the most deadly flu would take several weeks to achieve that so realism is somewhat compromised in order to move the plot on too quickly. Secondly Survivors 2008 places way too much emphasis on what is going on between the characters and gives virtually no attention to the actual mechanics of living. The original series went to great lengths to show the characters learning how to farm, generate electricity etc etc. None of that in the new show. Anyway still a quality drama compared to most TV output so I'll give it an 8 but do check out the original that ran for 3 series, 30 odd episodes, all available on DVD. Did you know 1975 Survivors still has a cult following and fan club?
