Show Summary

This show exhibits a controlled experiment that makes us think about how we would survive in the midst of a catastrophe. It tries to see exactly what we would need to survive and rebuild society under the worst circumstances. For 10 weeks, 10 isolated volunteers will have the task of rebuilding what is left of society after a viral outbreak, while finding ways to communicate and get electricity, water and food.

    • duped by the network

      While this show holds some interest for me, I couldn't care less if they make a second season. This is because they simply have taken all the stories we've ever read or seen regarding mafia families, street gangs, drug running gangs etc and expect us to choose a side?! its getting old quick that they have never REALLY explained the aliens and their conquering of the earth and they don't seem to care whether they ever do! They're trying to write this as if its WWII occupation of Europe by the Nazis. They sucked us in with the idea of dealing with alien domination of the globe and all they've given us is the usual activities of daily living with all the distrust, hatreds, duplicity et al that humans deal with daily in our lives. I do think the actors are doing a great job with mediocre writing at its best.moreless
    • Volunteer?

      Yep. I'm volunteering for the next season lol. But season 1 was far better than season 2 in my opinion. The participants were far more creative, granted almost all of them had degrees in every subject known to man. Still very entertaining, thought-provoking, and insightful.
    • I wish they make a new season

      They got most of the items by the producers placing items there..



      Season one mentioned a number of times that items were left around the area...



      Vladimir Beck's knife was a keep-sake from his son he " on " always kept by his side



      Keep in mind this is a simulation of how people survive by hunting forging and building with materials around them
