Goofs

The group, prior to their dissolution was based in Queens, which is on Long Island. As the series shows that New York City is under quarantine, yet no serious efforts are made to isolate the island boroughs (Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan) from either themselves or apparently much of the outside world. The group travels freely in a stolen vehicle between boroughs with no one apparently stopping nor searching them. See more »

Such a good Sci-fi Style Series with some Scary and Weird Scenes
14 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

Such a breath taking TV series. Very good story line will keep you in the seat and you will pray that they don't cut the story to continue in the next episodes. It is really hard to say who will be the leading character, but you will not care I believe.

Right now, there is under 500 ratings and the average is around 9.1. I believe it will be around 8-8.5 once more ratings are given. Because it has some clichés, weak characters weak plays. But it is almost unavoidable for this type of TV series and movies, it could be reduced a little bit. And the scary scenes doesn't have to be disgusting like that. That is why I gave 8 not 10.
