Storyline

17 year old high school outcast Josh searching for his missing girlfriend Sam in post-apocalyptic Glendale, California. He is joined by a ragtag group of misfits including a pyromaniac 12 year old, Angelica, and Josh's former high school bully, Wesley, now turned pacifist samurai. Josh and the group tries to stay alive amidst the horde of Mad Max-style gangs (evil jocks, cheerleaders turned Amazon warriors), zombie-like creatures called Ghoulies, and everything else this brave new world throws at him.

Trivia

There are a few nods to 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' other than the lead actor himself, Matthew Broderick. One being an altering of the famous line, "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." Josh Wheeler, states "Things are mutating fast around here. If you stop and look around, you may get eaten." Others include the teacher droning "Wheeler" at the beginning of episode 1, Josh driving a red Ferrari, and Josh's character frequently breaking the 4th wall to address the viewers. See more »

Starts off nice, but then... meh
26 October 2019 | by vannaspieringsSee all my reviews

There are some aspects I like about the show: the main character is a good actor, there are several funny moments (like the American Ninja Idol stuff), it has a few funny references to cult classics, and it has these kind of meta-elements where characters comment on Daybreak being a Netflix show etc. It's just... the story doesn't make any sense for me. Like the explanation behind important plot points is just stupid, dumb, and very unsatisfactory. I guess the producers wanted it to be this kind of "ridiculous-funny", but it's definitely not working for me. Some episodes are just extremely random - in a bad way.

Please come out with something better, Netflix 🙁
