Did You Know?


The amusement park that the group spends most of the story in was an actual theme park. It was the "Hard Rock Park" in its opening year of 2008 and then, under new ownership and without the license to use the "Hard Rock Cafe" logo (and some licenses for the ride branding), changed its name to the "Freestyle Music Park for 2009's season. After that, it was closed and now is considered to be a "defunct park", just rotting outside of Myrtle Beach, SC. When it was fully open, it featured 50 rides and five modern roller coasters.

Maggie is shown talking to her sons on her computer in Seattle when the power goes out. She is telling them that it is bed time in England, while we can see out her hotel window that the sun has just set. Since Seattle is 8 hours behind England, this would mean that her sons bed time is 3 or 4 A.M. depending on what time of year the blackout happened. See more »


Sgt. Will Strausser: [about to torture Rachel] Mrs Matheson. My apologies... in advance.

User Reviews

wander ruins of the Midwest again, find mean dogs & a guy who trained them, But problems arise- you learn more in flashbacks- so ; who will be a token 'RedShirt'.
8 October 2012 | by bicyclerepairman57See all my reviews

Still the main problem with this is that old devil 'Verisimlatude': I might buy the "electrical grid" going down, but Batteries? stand-alone circuits like generators? Give me a break. I'll stop complaining only to see where the next plot twist takes the storyline- but parts of the 'set-up' were a bit insulting.

Another problem is, everyone looks too clean & well fed. Motorized transport seems to be non-existent, sailboats are in damned short supply, so how come everyone decides to live in the interior of the Midwest? And as for getting around: okay we're walking across the continent...some folks for come everyone looks so 'soft'. You have people burning up calories, doing hard-scrabble farming to survive, and no-one should be living large- and one guy weighs about 300#, and everyone else looks like they showered twice a day. Some of the settings almost work- but Production values seem to be a lot off. You don't get a feeling for how damn long it would take to go anywhere in the world of this show, with the reduced mobility resulting from having no motor or animal- based transportation. I mean going from 'somewhere in Illinois',to the city of Chicago, seemingly in a few hours on foot, with little effort? This is getting tiring- NO pun intended. The basic idea- Civilization collapsed due to no communications and no mobility, is a rich and used-often concept....but please- there would be a greater number of people looking pretty damned tired & dirty, far more than this crew was, as they wandered around the country. And how come so many of the men do not have beards? Or does the one thing that survived from before the power went off was 'really Good Razorblades?'
