Mount Weather is in the Blue Ridge Mountains surrounded by temperate hardwood forests, oak, maple, walnut and the like. The forests we see are classic taiga evergreens, mostly pine, spruce, fir, etc. Filming in Vancouver means the only forests available are taiga. See more »

Cool SF, but dumb writing, and teens
24 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

SF about how humanity's sole survivors were on space stations for 100 years after Earth was rendered uninhabitable by nuclear war. The stations are failing, so criminals (juveniles) are being sent to Earth prematurely and desperately. Teens are so handy for TV, people like to look at them, and dramatic conflict can be easily stirred up on the pretence of immaturity. Excessive drama is not just excused, but mandated, to seem realistic. Anyway, the forest was gorgeous, but with startling and unexpected elements, the girls were pretty, I liked the concept. But there was quite a bit that was just bone dumb. For instance, the stations are running out of time, in their desperately closed ecosystem, so they execute people, for any misdemeanour, by flushing them, alive, with their bodies full of water and nutrients, out into space along with an airlock full of air.
