It has been 15 year since the power has gone off.
And all you see is people walking and riding horses.
I call Bull Shit on that one.
What about steam power?
What about bikes?
The writers on the show better get their act together or I'm sure people will stop watching.bsflag wtf

From what i gathered going by this show..

Not to contradict you, but bikes are not all that effective offroad, through grass, woods, ect.. Not everyone is a world class mountain biking athlete. Just sayin
Horses are just a natural solution.

Another poster, in another thread, went on about the lack of concrete roads ect..
I think they would have broken up some of it to use for walls, fortifications, weapons (try launching concrete chucks) ect.. They serve no purpose as roads really anymore, and just reflect heat and cause higher temps.

Where would they use steam power? Trains?
The tracks are blocked and they have no heavy equipment to move them.

Why is the power not back on after 15yrs?
From what I gather there is a continuous sort of em field preventing the power from working, and that is what those pendant/flash drives are about.

This is just my observation. Don't hate on me too much.

They could have had the show take place anywhere...I wonder why Illinois?


Living in Illinois, my speculation is because they can film on location (In south Chicago) & get that "Post Apoctolyptic" feel.

^ good point

I'm still watching, and loving all the Lost references and actors being brought in. Good story so far, I have faith, JJ Abrams will deliver.

I think you can watch it on Hulu for free

No shit, and what's up with that fat bastard after 15 years of want? Just like the fat bastard Hurley in Lost I guess.

I quit watching for 2 reasons.
1) Juliette from Lost is back - Shitty ass acting and she creeps me out
2) Gus from breaking Bad is now some spineless Toad.

You mean the show where some mysterious event knocks out all the electricity somehow in the world which, for some odd reasons, causes planes to freeze in mid air and fall straight down while spinning, yet the power is still on inside the planes? (lights in the windows)

Watching online trying to get caught up. I'm on episode 5 right now. I think if nothing else...this show really makes people think!! Stop looking to it for it's "entertainment value" and see it instead as a how to! I don't mean that the characters are always doing smart things, or making good decisions when it comes to problem solving. I'm talking about how this show give you a VERY realistic look at human beings and the potential animal that lives in each and every one of us when civilization becomes non-existent! This show does a very good job of portraying some realistic worse case scenarios in a dog eat dog world. It forces us to take a hard look at what we ourselves would or wouldn't be capable of doing if we found ourselves trying to survive with our loved ones in this nightmarish world.

As for those of you saying the young girl who plays Charlie needs to toughen up? Keep on watching, because many bad things happen to her and all around her that has made her tough as nails. It would have been unrealistic for her character to automatically be this way prior to all the experiences that causes her character to change. You need to remember, she is just a young girl trying to survive in a world turned upside down. It is only when her family becomes victim to this world that she begins to change and harden into the woman that she needs to be to survive.

One other thing that those of you who have given up on the first couple of episodes should know...in future episodes the writers are doing a good job of taking you back in time right after the blackout, i.e. the day of, a few weeks after, a few months after etc. and giving you glimpses into the main character's lives so you can see what has happened to them to shape them into who you're seeing now and how they connect with each other.

Don't give up on this show yet. I think it has some staying potential, and even if the network decides to cancel it, in the mean time, you WILL have learned something about what you can expect in such an Orwellian existence.
Real truth is self evident...

The writers should retitle it "Lost With No Electricity and Yet We Have Trendy Clothes and Perfect Teeth."

There, that sounds better.

Get real ! Those kids, especially the girls would not be running around free. They would be dead from disease, gang rape or lack of survival skills.

Everyone looks healthy, the uniforms looks new, and everyone has access to hot water, shampoo and soap. And let's not forget hair stylists, barbers and boot makers.

They are able to escape, dodge gun fire, and manage to evade the troops. Super Kids, Amazing Uncle, and their daily adventures don't do much for me. It's Hollywood and Bullshit.
