User Reviews

Kind of interesting as long as you don't follow logic
25 May 2019 | by joey_k-74060See all my reviews

It starts slow and I kept watching because of the interesting premise of high school kids trying to figure out how to create an ordered society.

However some items bother me:

1. Where is the electricity coming from? If I was stuck in the town for months I'd just follow the power lines to hopefully find civilization. Plus power stations are manned so without someone monitoring operations blackouts would occur.

2. How are they able to text and call each other? Cell phone towers require maintenance and it's improbable that somehow they can still run for 5+ months with nobody knowing where they are.

3. How did the bus leave the city and yet the city boundaries turn into woodland?

But still, despite those questions I continue watching mainly for the struggle to maintain a society. It's quite interesting how leaders appear and deal with tough decisions. Plus it brings up interesting points in how law really is arbitrary; we like to assume that laws are absolute but we really agree to follow laws.

I will be on the lookout for season 2!
