“A small town called Pretty Lake and surrounding rural area under siege from a mysterious disease that has wiped out everybody aged 22 and older. The series also explores numerous themes: the power vacuum that results when the government quarantines a 10 square mile zone and leaves the inhabitants to fend for themselves; the desire of inhabitants to escape, ignoring that they will spread the deadly disease to the entire planet; and the effect of hormonal teenaged/young adult angst becoming the guiding force for an entire community.“
I watched both seasons of this show over a weekend – I was hooked! I really liked the storyline in the fact that we really had no idea why what was happening was actually happening. I felt as if I was trapped with the characters.
I really hope there is a third season as I think there is a lot more this show has to offer.
If you are a fan of trapped/quarantine type shows with characters that you can really believe then this is for you!
As the plot centres on young people in a dark situation where there is a fair amount of nastiness going on the songs are quite rock centric. One of my favourite ‘lighter’ songs featured is ‘Moves‘ by The New Pornographers.
