I just finished watching seasons 1 and 2 of survivors and i'm currently watching season 3 now. I think this is the BEST post apocalyptic tv series ever. It begins with a dozen survivors who learn all over again how to survive after most of the worlds population is dead from a deadly virus. The writing by Terry Nation in season 1 is some of the best thought out PA writing i have seen on television or theater. If you can get a copy of Survivors by the BBC 1975-77 by all means do you won't be disappointed.
