...And I'm not talking about that crappy reality show.
Survivors is a British two season, twelve episode television program by the BBC about the aftermath of a super-flu that wipes out 90% of the worlds population. It's actually a remake of a BBC show from the 1970's of the same name. It's available on NetFlix streaming so add it to your instant cue now, you won't be disappointed!
It's about a group of survivors that have come together to make a life for themselves and all the troubles and trials they run into in a lawless, hungry world.
There are no mutants or CGI aliens or robots, and doesn't carry with it the bombastic militaristic adventurism in most American Sci-Fi (Si-Fi) programs which is quite refreshing. It's a realistic drama about a 'doomed' society trying to hang on.
It's quite a compelling show and the character driven acting is top-notch. The show touches on a number of social issues in a post-apocalypse society, which for me, falls into the true realm of science-fiction themes - the kind that make you ponder the events of the episode.
It's hard to come across great science-fiction and I think this is something worth watching. Check it out!
