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. Written by Clay Keeley Executive Producer

Show: 8/10, Presentation: 4/10
1 November 2012 | by PachillesSee all my reviews

To be clear, I'm an Xbox360 fan. Having shows available is great. Having exclusive shows is great. Having to jump around needlessly is annoying, having to watch the same commercial at the start of every 5 minute episode is ridiculous. Change-up the ads! Don't make me back out and jump through the same list every time I want to see the next episode! Aggravating!

The show itself (after getting past the short YouTube-like mini episodes) is quite interesting. The acting is good (but not perfect), and the story-line keeps you entertained. Well known, but not overly used, actors keeps the quality as good as anything on TV. You really get into the tension, and relief, with the scenes.

Bottom line: Well worth putting up with the annoyances of the format. Since the format is flexible, Syfy/Microsoft can clean up the problems without disrupting the quality and pace, and it will only get better (please-please-please!).
