I only get 5 sentences, so better make them count: according to this show, post apocalypse, when things devolve into a hunter/gatherer society, the men naturally become hunters and the women… at some point wish they were dead. I guess gathering must really suck, or else the women don’t have much faith in their hunters. This is set in America, right?
“The truly insane people are the ones outside the asylum”, or “the true bad guys are the ones filling the prisons”; those are standard storybook tropes, so I don’t need to have sneak peeked the previews to know where this is going: the real enemies are going to be the ones who got us into this mess in the first place, those who want to replicate the white capitalist society that let the drive to consume overtake our humanity and destroy the social contract– this is set in America, right?
Ok, it looks interesting, anyway, and I’m all in, unfortunately I know a truism about TV and it doesn’t bode well for the show: if you put a sword into a character’s hand, ever, for any reason, you lose females 35-55, and if you lose them… well, let’s hope I’m wrong.
And yet still they do not call them zombies.
