The world is destroyed when American kids accidentally set off a nuclear missile, causing the Russians to counterattack. Only six people are left in the US: Mark, the narrator, an ex-school teacher; Alice, a feminist; Curtis, a yuppie stock broker; Jack, a homeless person; Frederick, a black pathologist; and Suzanne, a sexy ditz.Written by

OK, so it was not the best attempt and perhaps the subject matter did not leave much room for development. But I kind of liked this little fill in show. It started with a parade and some clumsy kids then showed a guy in a VW bug at at a gas pump surrounded by desert. I have just finished converting the 5 and a half episodes I could find on some old tapes to DVD and the one episode that I really loved came through...the guilt ridden Santa show. This was one of the most hilarious Christmas shows I have ever seen. It seems when the bombs dropped, Santa panicked and locked Mrs. Claus out of the bunker. Now he is torn by guilt and becomes a pain in the butt for the hapless survivors in the farm house. Great stuff. OK, so it was may have been a poorly done rip off of Gilligan's Island. You had the liberal, the spoiled rich Republican, the stupid hot chick, the frustrated mid aged gal, the urbane black guy (Rembrandt Brown from Sliders) and the homeless guy. Comparisons can be made to the island bound folks. While they did make a good will attempt to entertain I think it was doomed from the start due to built in limitations. But it was diverting, as these quickie Fox shows go,and I would like to see it on DVD someday. After all, look at how popular the 6 episodes of Police Squad are.
