I love sci-fi – and this show caught my attention. I would compare this show to be similar to Lost (which I also love), and Lord of the Fries. The characters are believable, even the "bad guys" – the desperation and their willingness to do whatever it takes to survive made that show more exciting. There are times that I actually had to pause to gather my nerve before I continued watching. The plot twists, here and there, made it more exciting. I know this is a TV show and not real life, I do feel sorry for the characters that they have to fend for themselves. I watched the original on Netflix, and now I have the opportunity to get a Blu-ray copy. (I did buy the DVD version of this, but I believe the compression rate was set too high, and there were parts that were pixelated.) I am hoping for the second season to go on sale, and I will buy that, too. If a sci-fi show with younger characters is for you, you will not be disappointed.
