Storyline

What would you do without it all? In this epic adventure, a family struggles to reunite in an American landscape void of electricity: a world of empty cities, local militias and heroic freedom fighters, where every single piece of technology -- computers, planes, cars, phones, even lights -- has mysteriously blacked out forever.

Trivia

There are several references to author Stephen King throughout the series including episode titles 'The Stand' and 'The Dark Tower' and Miles' pseudonym in Season 1-2 is 'Stu Redman' one of the central characters in 'The Stand'. See more »

Goofs

A recurring character error that takes place is when someone confronted by the militia fails to kill the leader of the unit that is confronting them, thereby putting the troops in disarray. For example, when Danny shoots his crossbow, he does not shoot Captain Neville. Then, after the deer hunter gives up his shotgun he shoots a soldier instead of Captain Neville. A third incident occurs when the militia is firing upon the rebels for the first time. The rebels have the sniper rifle and the militia leader is in plain view, yet the sniper does not shoot him. While Danny's incident could be attributed to a lack of combat knowledge, the same could not be said of the adults that made the same mistake. See more »

Quotes

Miles Matheson: We lived in an electric world. We relied on it for everything. And then the power went out. Everything stopped working. We weren't prepared. Fear and confusion lead to panic. The lucky ones made it out of the cities. The government collapsed. Militias took over, controlling the food supply and stockpiling weapons. We still don't know why the power went out, but we're hopeful that someone will come and light the way.

oh a bleak future we face....looking good and having high school equivalent drama
26 September 2012 | by jennie_hoonSee all my reviews

For me it looked like a regurgitated "Lost". And as much as I love PAW fiction, I had a difficult thing with some things… not the how, what and where, but rather the softening up and romanticizing the harshness of a potential reality. Yeah, I know...its Hollywood.

I found the characters mainly looking like they came out of an Old Navy commercial…with perfect teeth and hair, and clothing that was amazingly stylish. Obviously someone had power to keep the straightening irons working...and the skills that survived well were dentistry, cosmetology and fashion design.

The planes falling from a flat spin from the sky instead of a diminished trajectory...still having navigation lights on didn't lend to realism in the beginning.

A detail that I laughed about was when they walked upon an RV on its side…with an open window to crawl into…and found the interior looking pretty much brand new after 15 years. There were others but I let them go at that point. Maybe I need to watch more episodes, but after the first show, I'm not sure if I have the time to watch it.
