I just caught the first episode of the BBC series The Survivors which follows a group of people in the wake of a virus that kills 90% of the worlds population. I don’t know if there’s anything particularly new in the story but I also don’t know if that’s necessary for these end of the world tales. The first episode was pretty good both in terms of acting and production values and so, if you’re a fan of apocalypse fiction, try to find a copy and watch it.
I’m not sure how I missed this given the first season was from 2008 but they seem to have started another season this year.
Oh, and nertz to the BBC for not allowing those of us on this side of the pond from watching their programs on-line. Gee, and are there really people out there who don’t understand why people engage in file sharing?
