James is 17 and is pretty sure he is a psychopath. Alyssa, also 17, is the cool and moody new girl at school. The pair make a connection and she persuades him to embark on a road trip in search of her real father.
Set ninety-seven years after a nuclear war has destroyed civilization, when a spaceship housing humanity's lone survivors sends one hundred juvenile delinquents back to Earth, in hopes of possibly re-populating the planet.
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.Written by
Ok this isn't the best thing I've watched this year but wow..
This series is pretty good. I'm not sure why people are complaining about the acting so vehemently. There are a lot of seasoned actors in this and they bring a presence and realism. Around eps 4-6 there are some touching and poignant moments. And they are created by the actors.
The script Is mildly loose at times. And the pace is at times recklessly fast. I would like to see characters develop more slowly and stay for longer.
I would recommend this to a friend with the above caveats. The hyperbolic vitriole on this site, in hand with senselessly low scores are confusing and not well supported. Save that rubbish for Facebook.
