I thought the show was intriguing. The behavior of people in a world completely changed from the life of ease we now know i.e. grow your own food, barter for what you need, take care of what you have is what I would expect. Who knows what people will come up with if electricity went out? BTW there are enough guns and ammunition around that if conserved and properly taken care of they could last a long time! There are WW2 guns that still work. The computer scene at the end was the only unrealistic thing - except we don't know what caused the outage or what the technology was at the time...smart people have always been able to work around obstacles. Notice it was an Algebra teacher that was on the computer? BTW what does being Republican or Democrat have to do with this?
