Survivors

I watched the new post-apocalyptic series, Survivors, on BBCAmerica last night--well, parts anyway.  Prolongeddying and boring for over 30 minutes.  A family member kept saying that The Stand was better.  (The beginning anyway; the end--not so much.)  Survivors is boring and stupid, and I don't like anyone, especially the psychopath.  Watching people dying and doing stupid things is boring.

For a couple classic post-apocalyptic stories, read Alas, Babylon by Pat Frank and Wolf and Iron by Gordon R. Dickson.
