A Post - Apocalyptic Treat,
This review is from: Survivors - Series 2 [DVD] (DVD)
Despite negative reviews for both series , i throughly enjoy watching survivors. the acting is very believable and the destered surroundings add to the genuine feel of the series. the different consequences each character goes through are very well thought up and handled brilliantly. i recommened you ignore the negative reviews and watch it for yourself.

Despite agreeing with much of your review, it's not right to post one before you've seen the whole series.

Any negative review you get for most "remakes" are just basically because that person can't accept that that film/show has been remade. But don't say it and just go on about a bad story line or bad acting or something. And what do they really expect for a remake TV-show? Frequent explosions and gun battles and car chases down an empty motorway? It's not a movie with a big budget, it's a TV-series with a gripping story line

The very fact that, instead of giving us something original, the BBC chose to remake such a classic well-loved drama is sufficient in itself to annoy a great many viewers. Just as the pointless and weak movie remakes of The Wicker Man, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Rollerball, The Ring etc. demonstrated a lack of imagination and some would argue are little more than a cynical plan to milk the glory of the iconic originals, this remake has added little whilst rushing and ruining many of the scenarios so beautifully depicted in the original. Judging by the Amazon sales statistics, at least sales of the original have increased significantly, so this remake has at least done some good!
