Still Lives

No longer releasing episodes

Thirteen years after the fall of modern civilization, five survivors live in relative harmony on an isolated farm, where they rarely discuss their lives Before.

The delicate balance of this household is upturned when a sixth survivor arrives at their doorstep with an empty stomach and a world of possibilities.

The group grapples with the implications of the new arrival – the resurrection of long-lost hopes and the introduction of very real dangers – ultimately embarking on a journey that will force them to confront the lives they lived Before and the question of what it means to live a good life in a post-apocalyptic world.

This is a very different post-apocalyptic show - mysterious, distanced and intimate at the same time. Every character has secrets and their current life seems somehow shallow. It´s interesting how the things, that are NOT said, plays into the story of the untold. It goes without saying that change is coming. I´m really looking forward to see where this goes.
I would have to spoil the ending to explain why nothing about this show makes sense. You can read my spoiler review on the last episode page. For here, I'll just say, nothing that the Scientist says to the cook about the device, nothing about all the handwringing about how it's dangerous or useless, actually applies once the reveal happens. And once the reveal happens, everything is fine and dandy and the Scientist has done a 180 flip. It's the Lost effect, where the writers hold out a mystery box but they jam in an ending that doesn't match it. Not only is this exploitative of the audience, it ends up making a presumably scientifically literate Scientist look like an irrational technophobe, who isn't able to keep from conflating technology with evil.
