Still coming to grips with the impending collapse of civilization, they are forced to witness culminating hanous effects on their senses.

The series is set in a city where people hide their pasts, shield secrets, and bury pasts, Los Angeles, California. A mysterious outbreak threatens to disrupt the little stability these individuals still have.

      I agree! But that is what you get from an early episode of a series. They have to role out the entire microcosm. Additionally, the initial scene to the show was lack luster for me. I didn't feel that the behavior matched the druggies persona. But I am curious to see how the various personalities evolve and how their behavior changes over the course or the very beginnings of the apocalypse.

      I am looking for several questions to be answered when it comes to a disastrous event like this. But to be honest, you have to separate yourself from The Walking Dead. Although they are similar show concepts, we should treat them as their own identity and judge them so.

      I watched the premiere on Sunday night and it was not nearly as engaging as The Walking Dead. I'll keep watching because I know the series has a lot to live up to but I'm definitely lowering my expectations.
