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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Now I've finished the season, I can safely say that stopping at E11 was a sensible idea. Stopping at minute 11 was a better. If the thing was not so utterly hilarious in the last few episodes, it would have to score just one star. Or less. The acting, plot and science are way beyond risible. The understanding of science and technology is about the level you'd find in a Greenpeace manifesto. It is just laughable. If you want a few laughs, OK, but according to the box, this is 824 minutes, and you can get more laughs more quickly in many places. Yep, second thoughts. One star. It's almost endearing in its dreadfulness but too, too awful.

*******************************************************************************
So, where do you start with the bad bits ? Hmm, lots to list. Too many. Let's start with the good bits. It's post-apocalypse. I like post apocalypse. Miles is a fairly good, 100% predictable formula character, as is Capt Neville (although his pre-blackout character and transformation are beyond risible). The rest are just average or worse or even much worse formula characters. The opening credits look quite pretty. But the voiceover is just terrible.

The very worst part is the derivative, hyper-simplified and frankly childish, formula written script. Too childish to be called teen fiction. Seriously, most people in my class wrote better than this at the age of twelve. The characters are all so beautifully manicured, coiffured and dressed, that this looks like the post apocalypse version of "Beverly Hills 90210".

Science and technology are woefully, woefully inconsistent and inaccurate, and I don't have a "Stars and Stripes" to salute continuously.
