He rushes out to discover on television that riots have broken out across the county. When the Army recalls them to active duty, Michael and fellow reservists Angel Tunudo and Saul Tink believe their job will be to put down the uprising and restore peace to the city.

Did You Know?


The "TV series", "We're Alive" was recorded without the use of visual recording devices and as a matter of fact, is not even a TV series at all, but a serialized audio drama/adventure which included a fairly large full cast and crew. Every last one of Jim Gleason's "We're Alive" episodes was recorded audio as a voice-over radio production. See more »

We're Alive - A Story of Excellence.
7 December 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Before I'd like to start my review, I would just like to point out that this is my first review ever on IMDb, in the 4 years I have been viewing this site. I feel like this should be my one occasion where I write a review; for the benefit of this show.

Over a year ago, I was listening to a podcast called LEOG, which can be found on spill.com. For the past several months prior to this episode of the LEOG, the crew had been raving about We're Alive for quite some time. I was intrigued, as on this specific episode I had to finally cave in and listen.

So I downloaded the first episode. It was a slow start, yet this is not a flaw at all. The show had me hooked straight from the beginning. From there on in, I downloaded the entire show (up until the current episode) and listened to them all as I went on a camp. I've also been listening to each episode as they've been released all year.

The show benefits from a very strong vocal cast. Each actor is not only distinguishable, yet extremely likable. Every word that is spoken throughout the show is never out of place. As well as this, the sound effects add a beautiful subtle effect on the show, as well as chills during those haunting moments. Props to the sound editors, if only I could shake your hand.

Without going into details on the story, the journey in which these characters go through is incredible. I've never cried during anything in my life a part from the Six Feet Under finale, but never had I felt so sad during "The Hive" episode. Make no mistake, We're Alive is full of raw, human emotion.

Before I begin repeating myself, for there is not much to say here without using a thesaurus, I would just like to say that this show is one of the best things I have invested my time in. This is the first review on this site for We're Alive, so I decided to just rush this review for the sake of the show. You don't have to love zombies to love We're Alive. Must listen.
