Storyline

The world as we know it has ended. Six years after a brutal virus carried by the rain wiped out almost all humans in Scandinavia, two Danish siblings emerge from the safety of their bunker to find all remnants of civilization gone. Soon they join a group of young survivors and together set out on a danger-filled quest through abandoned Scandinavia, searching for any sign of life. Set free from their collective past and societal rules the group has the freedom to be who they want to be. In their struggle for survival, they discover that even in a post-apocalyptic world there's still love, jealousy, coming of age, and many of the problems they thought they'd left behind with the disappearance of the world they once knew.

Let it rain,,,,,
6 May 2018 | by s3276169See all my reviews

In spite of the fact its not aimed at my age demographic The Rain really is inherently watchable. I've read some rather stupid reviews of this series and my advice is, ignore them.

This is an excellent, inherently honest series that has an emotional and intellectual maturity you do not often see in series of this kind. The characters are real people, not the juvenile, shallow card board cut outs, you find in many US series cast in a similar vein.

The key characters have flaws, they make mistakes and sometimes they die. Indeed this series does not shy away from harming or killing off pivotal characters and its all the more interesting for it.

The pacing is fast and it never really slows. Indeed I raced through the first short season in two sittings and I really, really hope a second season is in the offing. The action is well done too and its balanced nicely by the human stories, that evolve as we get to know more about the key characters.

All in all a really polished, highly entertaining, post apocalyptic drama pitched at twenty somethings but also accessible by the rest of us. 8/10 from me.
