Basically, a high-school aged girl (17-ish) and her younger (12-ish) brother are hustled into an underground bunker by their father when a rain-dispersed lethal virus gets loose on the world. After 5 years in the bunker, they emerge and "On the Road Through Post-Apocalyptic Scandinavia" is the result.

2018 is the first season. I watched Episode 1. Not bad. Good production values. Decent plot. Has potential.

So far, 2.5 headbangs out of four. I will revise upward or downward after seeing a few more episodes.

Good character development and properly weird small group dynamics. 3 headbangs now.

Yes, saw that on Netflix. Is it for teens, though? The adults behaving badly thing can get tiresome.

I don't understand the question.

The protagonists are all adults. The general plot thread is your typical apocalyptic contagion story/on the road with the survivors.

So if you like the "how we survived [or not] the apocalypse" fiction you'd probably like it. It's similar to The Walking Dead in some ways, but no undead.

Yes, I watched up to episode 5. It is considerably more sophisticated than my first take. I retract my original teen apocalypse series criticism. I think the writers DELIBERATELY feigned the teen apocalypse genre. Plus, there are titties in episode 5...but not very big.

Definitely worth watching.

The protagonists are MOSTLY adults. ;)

About the only one that may not be is the blonde with braces... Lea (Jessica Dinnage) .... the one whose backstory is she's a date-rape victim.

So far it's more a psychological drama than an apocalyptic show but it's quite enjoyable. It does rather well BECAUSE of the absence of gratuitous display of flesh.
