Survivors – Season 1 – **1/2

Posted: March 16, 2013 in Drama, Thriller, USA, XX1/2

Damn the BBC for making a series of only 6 episodes that ends with a cliffhanger! Now I have to get Season 2 as soon as possible. Why not just release it as ONE package of 12 episodes?

Frustration!

I really enjoyed the first six episodes a lot even though I didn’t always love the acting and some of the plot twists and dialogue are ridiculous. You also get introduced to a LOT of characters who never return! But in the end, I was entertained and I can’t wait for the next episodes! I may just have to buy them online.

So what is it about? Easy: a virus wipes out 90% of the world population and only some survive. Seven of them kind of end up together and need to deal with this new world. They find a house and try to protect it from other groups of survivors, a government in exile and some weird virus control science center that you don’t get to learn anything of until the end of the season.

In the group are some really interesting characters, three of which are the ‘leads’. One is Abbey, who got the virus but got better. She’s confident that her son is still alive and does everything to find him. Another is Greg, a guy who was well prepared to go and survive on his own somewhere and now is stuck with all these others he starts to care for. And there’s the most interesting one of them all: Tom, an ex con who’s pretty violent but shows a good loyal heart as well.

Great tv stuff!
