O-M-G ; where to begin, really as the previous responses state that the story line/plots/was capable of some stunning Archs the Acting and dialogue are just Horrid ! First off this main Character the Eldest Sister the beauty that she is is such a Dumb is dumber character. From the very get-go in the Pilot she along with her even more stupid brother Inject the story line with the such idiotic acts that surely the Militia would react and take their Dad out for their prideful reactions. The Militia comes to town to question their Dad and these siblings go and get him killed on their own, then to make matters worse the sister gets her brother taken into custody. Then the story develops into the sister having to track and bring her brother back into the fold, and what fold is that ? As her Mom is no-where to be found yet lurking in the story-line several episodes into the future, even more stupid scripting from the writers/developers. But back to the heroine/sister as she makes idiotic move after move, I mean how stupid can a pretty girl be in a doomsday scenario. leaves most sane thinking adults to wonder how she made it as long as she had or in fact her whole family too. Then comes the Dead killed by Militia Scientist Father's close but evil Brother to help track down his Nephew; let the sword fighting commence. How horrible the fight scenes another O-M-G moment or should I say moments. If it were not for the Horrendous scripting/story-line the acting would be even worse. At least one can conclude that an actor can only do so much with a ridiculous script and surely these home-spun unknown actors are not allowed free range improv. And if this was not bad enough we have to bear thru the scenes and filming locations with the cut grass scenes at the farm where miraculously Electrical Power works. And even after 4 years the characters hold on dearly to their I-Phones surely if you have lived thru many-many years of No Electricity you would keep your I-Phone in your vest pocket ! I wonder why such a Horrid start to an Interesting Plot, and know full-well that this show will not last even the first season. A shame as the story line holds credence and it would be interesting to say the least to watch how a scenario like this could actually develop. The Creators leaned way too heavily on this one family dynamic and they got it 100% wrong.
