5.0 out of 5 stars Good plot, good acting! 26 Feb 2014
By Mr. Stephen Redman VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This series has the makings of a long term excellent show, that I hope will be renewed and continue for years. The power is off, but why? And can it ever return? These are the questions that the show is working towards answering and the character relationships that develop along the way are also excellent.

I have seen the series of this DVD on TV, and thoroughly enjoyed it. So have bought this Dvd as a present, for a friend. It captures you from the onset, and twists and turns in the plot. Really recommend this Dvd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Addictive! 4 Mar 2014
By Ali
Format:DVD
I've watched the season all the way through a few times now and it gets more addictive each time. It's an interesting concept and the story lines are intriguing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average. 5 Sep 2014
Format:DVD
How much you enjoy this depends entirely on your ability to switch off your brain before watching. It reminds me a little of Steven King's 'The Stand', but without the gritty realism, interesting characters, and strong plot. The story moves incredibly slowly, and at least half of the running time seems to be taken up by action sequences. Average mindless fun.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as bad as Falling Skies... 31 Jan 2014
Format:DVD
...and that's almost the best thing I can say about this.

It is a pretty good idea, and the Abrams involvement suckered me in. Every so often there's a flash of something great, but these are lost in the endless clichés and moronic 'plots'. My partner and I had some fun predicting lines and events before they occurred, but even we didn't expect to be cheering when the 'heroes' died.

I think some other review commented that Charlie Matheson is THE most irritating character since Jack's daughter in the first season of 24. I was actively rooting for something terrible to happen to her from about episode three.

Tedious flag waving; ridiculous, illogical plots like the subway tunnel that ran out of oxygen (??????), the lack of sailing boats, bicycles, diesel vehicles etc etc. Why does nobody pick up any weapons, and where did the cool crossbow go???

Sigh...

By Mr. D. L. Rees TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Fifteen years ago the world's electricity suddenly ceased. In America (nothing learned about elsewhere) nature has taken over, as has the militia. What hopes for rebels against tyranny - crossbows and swords surely no match for revolvers and machine guns? Twenty episodes follow the trials and tribulations of the Matheson family and associates.

The initial premise intrigues. Much money has certainly been spent on the overall look of the show. Sadly, though, here is yet another example of failure to create firm foundations upon which to build. Nothing holds up, certainly not the reasons for the electricity shutdown in the first place. Most characters are shallow, they simply not thought through, some actors visibly floundering whilst jerked from one contrived situation to another. Episodes are crammed with inconsistencies - captures, risible escapes, people popping out of nowhere just in time to save threatened colleagues - some bewilderingly changing sides (often back again). Much is so loosely put together, at times it seems as though key linking scenes have been missed out.

Thank goodness for Giancarlo Esposito (he excellent as charismatic villain Gus in "Breaking Bad")! Here at least is a hint of substance, he coping better than most with decidedly dodgy scripts. Particularly unconvincing is the relationship between "hero" Miles and psychotic would-be dictator Monroe. Flashbacks reveal them to be blood brothers who have fallen out, their ongoing feud apparently the reason for much of the mayhem. Just one example of the absurdities that abound? SPOILER ALERT! Monroe rounds up everybody in their home town and threatens to burn them to death unless Miles surrenders.

3.0 out of 5 stars Awful but watchable 20 Jan 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Very holely when it comes to describing the future world. They cast is all clean and shiny. They have lovely, fitted clothes and nice boots (15 years after the factories closed); the militia have time to visit the gym as they are all muscly (yes, today's military do go to the gym, but that's because they have transport - future militia wouldn't have time for the gym, having to walk everywhere); no-one looks hungry or thin. Oh and oddly the wildlife (deers etc) seems to have survived nicely thank you - I would have thought they would have been hunted to extinction as people left the cities.

And then we get the script. "People who stayed in the cities all died". Where did they find the uncle...in the city, which was doing OK thank you. Monroe has been looking for the two brothers for 15 years, but he's obviously not looked very hard because one was within a couple of days' walk of the city they started from, and the other was...in the city.

Guns are amusing too. There is a constant running sub-plot about the lack of guns for the general population. The militia are the only ones allowed to have them. I can see how this might cause most Americans' teeth to start grinding "take away our guns...that's our civil liberties". To the majority of the other nations in the world, they wouldn't really understand how upsetting that is - they would probably shrug and say "law and order maintained in a world of anarchy by removing firearms...sensible idea." To carry forward modern views about weaponry, when everything else (computer programmers becoming farmers etc) has changed, seems stupid.

All that said, it's quite well put together, and the lead characters are strong and generally put in good performances. There's just enough plot (if you smile at the comments above) to keep you bumbling along.
