    So, after 15 years with no electricity at all, everyone has perfect hair (neatly trimmed, styled, close cut etc); so this future can’t be so bad after all.

    JJ Abrams huh?

    So we should expect 13 episodes a year with lots of plot twists and mysteries none of them ever making sense, explained or resolved.

    Count me out.

    I honestly wish Abrams was never born. There is only so much Sci-Fi produced and consumed in a year and he is draining that world’s oxygen for the production of crap.

    Come to think of it, their teeth are in excellent condition too, despite the privations. This seems to be generally the case in all post-apocalyptic films and tv. Presumably there is always a supply of teeth-whitener amongst the ruins.

  4. I do hope that Abrams’, err, excesses, are somewhat curbed in this show.

    I could hope but wouldn’t hold my breath if they got the help of someone who has thought about the implications of things like this. S.M. Stirling, for instance (although his world didn’t have guns working ,either)

  5. So, Abrams is now ripping of popular web series like Afterworld? Alright then.

  6. It’s hard to take this show seriously after the truly awful commercials during the Olympics.

  7. This will tank like Terra Nova, as it should.
