    Some really nice atmospheric shots in that trailer. I'll tune in.

    Yeah, exactly. Let's hope not...
    First one was OK, then it quickly fell through the floor.

    I wasn't a Lost fan but this looks interesting, really like the look of that trailer but there's too many beautiful people, do all the ugly fatties die off? ;)
    According to one school of post-apocalyptism that is exactly what will happen. Fatties will die in untreated welfare diseases (diabetes, cardiac arrest etc etc). Beauties will attract a following and set up tribes that protect them.

    This looks like it'll probably be a load of old arse.

    Luckily, having watched the trailer above, I will no longer need to watch at least the first 6 episodes.

    Was that the gay red indian dog bloke from Twilight?

    looks a bit shit. Those atmospheric shots at the beginning were cool though. Typical JJ abrhams affair. But the actual premise looks a bit.. sickly.

    I quite like billy burke though. think he has a good screen precense. One of the bitter things about twilight.

    For the guy who hasn't seen fringe, its really good, in a guilty pleasure sort of way. Its a glorified x files, but the main characters are awesome. Really well drawn and likeable characters. John noble is awesome.

    I don't think there was any problem with the premise of Dies the Fire. The author was just little too interested in showing off his knowledge of the medieval world and the way they so completely recreate medieval society is a little contrived to say the least.

    As a series of books I actually quite enjoyed them though. I do like me some historical details on warfare though so did not mind the contrived route the story took to get us there.

    Anyway I think it’s a promising post-apocalyptic premise for a TV series and I think Abram’s has some talent as long as he does not get caught up in mystical bull shit. If they play it as straight up post-apocalyptic story and don't go all super natural on the “why” to it all I think it could be good.

    The premise was alright to a certain degree. No electricity fine. No combustions what so ever ... nah.
    And I didn't like how quickly it went from cool post-apocalyptic stuff to straight up Tolkien rip off. I also think the writing was exceptionally poor. Page upon page describing wood carvings and feasts.

    It was not no combustions whatever. It was some sort of pressure thing. Gun power still burnt but not fast enough for firearms and steam power would not work. It was as contrived as hell of course.

    And lay off the wood carving. I love that stuff :-P

    I did give up the series in the end maily due to the Tolkien stuff but I do think it had some decent stuff on medieval war fare methods which just happens to be something I am interested in so I could forgive it some of its flaws.

    I prefer Kunstelr's take on the cozy catastrophe genre. Or "The Earth Abides". I hope that Revolution won't focus on war too heavily.

    Not sure I am familar with Kunstelr's?

    The Earth abides is great though. It has such a far ranging scope to it given the time frame it examines things over.

    As for Revolution the characters all seem to have a lot of weapons so I am thinking fighting is going to be happening quite a bit.

    I watched the trailer and it looks absolutely infuriating. Aside from the central premise of plot making zero sense, it seems like it'll be another drawn out series, with even the script writers not knowing (yet) how it'll end. The sword fight was quite fun though.

    I got that wrong. Kunstler. (Howard is it... maybe)
    A world made by hand is brilliant. If you liked The Earth Abides I'm pretty sure you'll love it. After that it's The Witch of Hebron (or the Hebron Witch, I can't remember)

    Peak oil apocalypsm at its best.

    The "15 years later" makes me suspect that it will focus on post-apoclaypsm rather than the apocalypse itself.

    I was going to say that the central McGuffin could work if it was some super evil computer virus. That wouldn't kill batteries or all cars though. Isn't that pendant a usb drive?

    If I was a hacker I would work on a powerplant circuitbpard killing super virus.

    @Tonka Thanks for that. I am always looking for post-apocalyptic stuff. It's probably my favourite genre.

    In that case I'd also like to recommend "Beyond Armageddon" (an anthology) and "The Roadmakers" which is also cozy catastrophe.
