In a post-apocalyptic future, a deadly virus has wiped out most of humanity. The only ones who survived, were those who hadn't yet reached puberty. Now, a decade has gone by, and a man called Jeremiah is set on a quest to find a mysterious place, of which his father spoke, a place called Valhalla.Written by

There have been plenty of post-apocalyptic movies and TV shows, and JEREMIAH stands out as a decent example of the genre. This brief series (two seasons) follows Luke Perry as Jeremiah who wanders around parts of what had been the U.S., trying to put things back together after a virus has wiped out most of humanity. He has to deal with all sorts of folks, including various bad guys who have decided that are now in charge. The show amounts to a sort of post-modern Western. Perry is quite convincing as an emerging leader in his typically understated way. Sean Astin is on hand for some episodes, and Malcolm Warner from The Cosby Show plays Jeremiah's closest ally. At times, it is painfully evident we're watching a low-budget Canadian-lensed show. But various plot twists and Perry's commanding presence keep things moving along.
