Awesome
30 April 2018 | by kardayathomasSee all my reviews

One of my all time favourite documentary tv shows. The show much like National Geographics Aftermath Population Zero was inspired by the book The World Without Us by Alan Weisman. But to bad that this series only ran for 2 seasons. I Love seeing how nature could make a comeback in a big way if humans just somehow stop the destruction. But just as in Aftermath and The World Without Us, In this show it is if humans all disappeared for some unknown reason. Love how they back up their beliefs with evidence.
