Product Description

Welcome to Earth. Population Zero. What would happen if every human being on Earth disappeared? This isn’t the story of how we might vanish – it is the story of what happens to the world we leave behind. The second season of the fascinating HISTORY™ series Life After People takes a stunningly graphic journey to a world wiped clean of humanity.

From animal outbreaks to massive structural collapses to hordes of toxins and chemicals unleashed across the globe, Life After People: The Complete Season Two reveals what happens in the hours, days, months and years after people disappear.

• The incredible cutting-edge CGI effects reveal in superb quality the scientific details of the fate of every aspect of the man-made world and how the landscape of our planet would forever change in our absence. As each scenario is revealed it is easy to forget you are  watching CGI and not the actual disintegration of our planet as we  know it.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit too harsh on the Jesus Crispies 14 Feb 2014
By Me
Format:DVD
As a Brit, I am aware that both Season One and Two of LAP are US-centric but then it was developed first and foremost for the US market.

In contrast to Season One and with a new narrator (American as opposed to British) I was immediately struck by how biased/Christian-leaning Season 2 came across, right from the off (something that was far more absent in Season One). The narrator's tone was very much damnation/judgement. Snakes were continuosly referred to as 'serpents' as if to reinforce a biblical downfall of man. It's fine if that's your bent but as someone who is not religious and simply interested more in the science behind decaying things, I found it incredibly irritating.

Also in contrast to the First Season (which I thought was superior) it seemed to take AGES for the breakdown of things to be explained. Events occured only after what seemed like an extraordinary period of time telling you about the entire HISTORY of the place/building, and the scientific angle and future decay was tacked on almost like an afterthought. Thankfully several of the original structural engineers, scientists and authors like Steven S. Ross (legend) managed to (imo) save what I felt was a poor follow up to the First Season. The graphics were again great though.

So in short: buy this if you want to be regaled by a Christo-westernised narrative in places and a deeply America-centric view of the entire world plus more emphasis on history of past rather than future (I honestly felt it wandered) and go for the First Series if you want a more concise and to-the-point representation of what the rotting and rebuilding future looks like.

All imo. Each to their own but that's my take.

After buying the 1st life after people and really enjoying it i thought id give the 2nd series a try too, This series really is an amazing incite into mankind's structures and materials, foods and machines and how long before they become non-existent, also what will be the last thing standing to show we once existed! You really do learn something new every single episode definitely worth the watch and buy!

2.0 out of 5 stars hmm 14 Mar 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
first one (season 1) totally excellent, this season (2), whats with the religious pscychobabble? what does it have to do with people not being on the planet? we didnt need this element to what is a very good series. and to be honest, if your a believer, then there is more than one religion on the planet!! the first episode (wrath of the gods) bangs on about god, churches, serpents and black cats!! why? nothing like trying to 'convert' people through what is supposed to be a normal documentary! very disappointed in the second season, putting me off buying the 3rd when it's released

Channel 4 in the UK carried the documentary version of this from the History Channel. I've young children- this is going to be my nighttime TV after they go to bed over the Christmas period- I am so looking forward to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deserves every award under the Sun 17 Jun 2010
By Richard
Format:DVD
Not yet on general release till Mid July this 2nd series is now on the History Channel.Its the same fare as the first Season and is an idea which could go on even further.
The Ultimate Disaster Movie which is Science Fact not Fiction.There's many abandoned cities where just such a thing has already happenned.
Running a close second to Life After people is Aftermath-a series of programs which ask "imagine the World without Oil","Imagine the World if the population doubled" or "Imagine the World if it turned slower".
In these programs there's maybe the answer to how people disappeared of the face of the Earth
