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.
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.
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
Seems a little strange that a lot of reviewers seem frustrated that 2 people locked up in a bunker for 6 years lack the skills to maximise their survival and make some stupid decisions. I felt the storyline was OK through most of the series though was a little disappointed with the ending. I felt the flashbacks added to your understanding of the characters and gave them a little depth. The acting probably was a little wooden in parts and I didn't like that Netflix dubbed it rather than use subtitles. It probably would have been better as a movie than a miniseries, some episodes definitely didn't add to the story arc and were a waste of time. Overall though, it was enjoyable to watch and reasonably well executed for the genre.
