Nuclear war breaks out. Who launched the ICBMs? Joan Collins guest stars. This is the ignominious downfall of humanity. There is false hope of shelter. WW3 does not motivate anyone to change their behaviour. Why does the rich woman's driver stay behind to die? The balloon goes up. The opening credits are basic.
Evan Peters, Billie Lourde, Leslie Grossman, Emma Roberts and Kathy Bates stars. Dina Myer guest stars as mother whose son got into UCLA just before the sirens go off. What is the cooperative? Dina Myer, her husband and other son are left to die as the elder son is taken away to shelter. How did the survivors survive the fallout and radiation and blasts?
People get shot. There are chaotic cirumstances. A creepy woman runs the Outpost. The boy doesn't seem to miss his family. There are bizarre rules and dressing for dinner. A rich woman's PA is made into a servant. A ticket to the Outpost was 100 million dollars. They only have enough food for 18 months. Something is out there.
People are bereft. There is decontamination and major consequences and secret plots and a crisis point. There are weird social events and the Outpost is not a beacon of light and sanity. 18 months pass and things are gloriously weird. There is no chronic loneliness or soical isolation. Horses in gas masks are seen. A prat shows up. The poor horses die. The Outposts are falling. What ate the dead horses? How do they plan to leave the Outpost? Things are incomprehensible and intriguing and there has been violent loss of global consequence.

“Rotting mounds of corpses. Too many to bury. Starving people kill for a piece of bread. 3 Outposts have been over-run. We are the last vestigates of civilized life on the planet.”
The Morning After
Snakes attack. The people in the bunker are irrational and stupid. A long haired pretty boy and his eyeshadow who can't act shows up. The cooperative lot are dangerous lunatics. I am assuming there is civil, social and refugee chaos outside. There is no abundance of talent and no profound gratitude at living. The pretty boy conducts interviews. This was not deep or profound.
People are thoughtless and selfish and angry and unsympathetic and have utter fury and overwhelming anger. We don't see the appalling aftermath of the bombs. Rubber Man from 'Murder House' shows up. Challenging things happen.
There is a destructive force. The grandmother has a toxic fixation with survival. How is there email in the aftermath? Who laid in all the supplies of hairspray, goth make up and gowns? There is toxic debates. The Lestat wannabe wannabe has absolute discretion to annoy. There is raw, personal emotion. The bunker is a social minefield and this was not meaningful. This is a terrible thing and there are no unholy frights. Just dark secretive secrets. Who is Rubber Man? The hairdresser is inconvenienced.
People are never fully sincere and say blatantly inflammatory things. People make patently unhinged choices of action. There is social anxiety and people burn with shame. There is ego boosting prancing. There are dumb and preposterous choices and emotionally aloof sneering.
There is narcissim and the pointlessness of ambition. There are toxic maculine ideals, nobody expresses vulnerability and there is no worry or concern. There is deep instability and people fail to address troubles. There is death and this was not new or brilliant. How horrible the conditions are. A woman bleeds yellow? This was mmmm. There are nightmare prospects and no dramatic impact.
“God knows how deep they went after the blast.”
“Survival of civilised life on Earth.”
“What is this 'The Hunger Games'?”

“Festering pustule who just will not die.”
“They're plotting something.”
“Giving it to me.”
“Desperation to be seen and loved.”
“Humanity may be in a sorry state but it deserves better than you.”
“The world is strewn with the unburied corpses of 7 billion people.”
The Latest Model
James Frain plays Odin Reichenbach (no really) and The Devil's Foot is discussed. Aidan Quinn is older and fatter than ever. I haven't watched this show in years so am a bit lost. This bored.
