Its a post apocalyptic nightmare, without the nightmare?
13 July 2016 | by helle-jrSee all my reviews

So, Day 5. What could be said about this quite unknown show, I for one stumbled over it on YouTube by mistake. I then proceeded to see the first episode, and after that I was addicted.

The plot, without spoiling to much is basically "Dont sleep". That's it, simply don't sleep. As long as you stay awake, you stay alive. Our group of misfits go on a journey to find what started this plague, and perhaps find out how to stop/cure it, while themselves getting drained by the crude state of not sleeping. Since most of human kind has died, there's a very post apocalyptic feel to the whole thing. And as the days pass, those who don't sleep get even more insane and violent.

It's really a great jewel of a show.
