Just a few weeks ago I discovered a whole genre of TV shows which I will label as post-apocalyptic. (Not having cable TV means that I am perpetually 7 years behind on Tv watching.) Some of this has been pretty good watching. I enjoyed the first season of Jericho very much. Revolution was all right for the first few episodes. It became lamer with each episode though. Just now I found a BBC show called Survivors.I guess the premise of this show is that the flu kills off a huge chunk of the world population and those who are left must figure out how to survive.
All of these showsare really making me think about what is essential and how I would fare after the apocalypse. I feel a short story or two in the works.
