There is hysteria, one of the farmer’s idiot family runs outside for a romp around fallout covered fields ignoring the dead animals and birds. The hospital is chaotic but there is no nuclear winter in this. A man hits a church bell with a rock and has a service in a ruined church giving a deranged sermon about: “Destroying the destroyers of the Earth.”
Survivors sitting around in piles of rubble listen to a radio broadcast which states a ceasefire is in place due to cataclysmic damage. One of the survivors is Stephen Furst of ‘St Elsewhere’, ‘National Lampoon’s Animal House’, ’National Lampoon’s Class Reunion’ and ‘Babylon 5’.
Reconstruction is attempted with talk of decontaminating fields and removing topsoil. Which begs the question: what are the survivors eating? This was okay, better than ‘When The Wind Blows’ that’s for sure.
“Is anybody there? Anybody at all?”
“It smells so bad down here.”
“What do you thinks gonna happen out there? You think we’re gonna sweep up the dead and fill in a couple of holes and build some supermarkets?”
“We knew this could happen for 40 years.”
“Lucky to be alive.”
“There has been no surrender, no retreat.”
“He said he didn’t know how they were going to fight World War III. But he knew how they would fight world War IV: with sticks and stones.”
“We’re talking catastrophe here.”
There are more endless flashbacks. TPTB do know that their show is no ‘Lost’ and it isn’t 2004 anymore right? Chuck is casually mentioned as being dead. Crowley realises there are more tablets. Dean wails, Castiel blubbers and I remember those old ‘Prophecy’ movies. A new baddie Naomi (Amanda Tapping of ‘SG1’ and ‘Sanctuary’) yaps and this was deadly dull.
“I lied. I do that.”
“You’ve got to stop drowning me in holy water every time I go out. I’m not possessed.”
“Talk about the dumbing down of America.”
“Don’t provoke me Kevin, you still have nine fingers.”
“Madman or megalomaniac?”
“An ass load of drugs.”
“Stop smelling the dead guy.”
“Does the crazy chase you?”
“This whole mysterious resurrection thing.”
“There was a pastry mishap.”
“We’ll have a slumber party and braid Sam’s hair.”
