Storyline

Nuclear Family begins the story of a young couple, John and Lynn, who are trying to survive in the woods after what appears to be a nuclear holocaust. They stay on the move with their 11-year-old daughter, Pauline... all the while searching for their missing 8-year-old son, Grant. Meanwhile, present society has disintegrated, and the family must stay one step ahead of the Berserkers: lawless, wild, brutal men who rape,pillage and destroy as a way of life. Shot as a pilot presentation for a TV series the story will take this family, and the others they meet along the way in their search for Grant and to avoid the Berserkers, to discoveries beyond the existing reality.

Better than expected
16 August 2013 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

I don't really do webisodes - watching five minutes at a time just doesn't interest me, unless I can wait till they're all completed and then watch them together. I haven't watched a webisode since Battlestar Galactica.

My wife strong-armed me into watching this, and I'm glad she did. This was really quite impeccable, and quite frankly it puts the NBC show Revolution to shame because it does far more with a fraction of the budget. While Revolution is trying to convince you that an incredibly attractive group running around in Abercrombie & Fitch clothing is living in a post-apocalyptic world, Nuclear Family does a significantly better job of selling the reality.

Sure, it's a bit rough around the edges, but all of that can be attributed to the lack of a budget. The writing is top notch. And the addition of Ray Wise as "The Man" just tickles my fancy. It reminded me of his turn as the Devil in Reaper, another underwatched and underrated gem.

This show is currently On Demand on Syfy. Definitely worth a glance.
