An unknown virus pandemic kills more than 90% of the world's population. Those immune must strive to survive and overcome the difficulties of this new world order, hoping that the virus will not mutate.
A small town in Kansas is literally left in the dark after seeing a mushroom cloud over near-by Denver, Colorado. The townspeople struggle to find answers about the blast and solutions on how to survive.
I've been studying terrorism and disaster preparedness for 20 years and in my opinion this is one of the most accurate shows on this topic that's ever been on TV. Granted, some of the situations are pretty dire and unlikely, but all the better to illustrate that with a little preparation and if you keep calm, an ordinary crisis situation is very survivable. I also like how it realistically portrays the viciously violent nature of criminals today -- reality is much more shocking than the toned-down fare we normally get in movies and TV. I've only seen the first four episodes thus far, but hopefully later in the season they add a few words about how one can prepare in advance to lessen the impact of emergency situations -- thus far, the presumption is that the victims have to survive with only what's at hand.
