Skip to comments.Prepper Tv: Revolution premier Monday (vanity)
Posted on 09/16/2012 3:13:18 PM PDT by lulu16
It's been a long time since the great series Jericho, dealt with the topic of a SHTF situation and the lights are out all over the United States again. This one is years after an inexplicable EMP-type of event, and the story picks up when a young arrow-wielding heroine, takes a trek to Chicago,(inexplicably) of all place. Who's gonna watch tomorrow night 9/10C? And what survival book are you reading right now. I am reading the ebook The Prepper Road Compendium. Right now our hero, who has been trucking down the road in style in an old tractor, is going to be spending the night lying in a hammock by a lake and luring trout with rancid freezer food. What are you reading?
Already seen it...it needs work.
I was planning on watching it but haven’t care for any of those shows since Jericho. Still don’t know why they cancelled that one. Who in their right mind would go to Chicago today, much less after it hits the fan?
The only thing I’m reading is the FR prep threads and later the seed catalogs.
I think the premise of any worldwide electrical or expansion type power failure is based on an S.M.Stirling novel The Change. If steam can’t produce energy to do stuff then the world would be pretty much done, or at least 90 to 95 per cent of the pop. I don’t see this being as successful as Jericho which had a pretty good premise and a relativiely reasonable aftermath.
I happened to catch the world’s most depressing movie the other night.

How did you see it?
Is that a good book? And how do you think it is the same or different?
I would love everyone on Monday Night to go see the movie about courage that I saw with family yesterday. Incredible!!!!!
“...inexplicable EMP-type of event?” It would have to be a worldwide EMP attack to stop market supplies (e.g., electronic auto parts) from getting around in less than “years after.”
I’m not reading anything about popular “prepping” (too old for camping fantasies) but am only working at home to save on energy costs, other costs, and get through poorer economic years. People “prepping” too much for civil unrest might find themselves much poorer in the near future (the real danger for most). Many jobs and fortunes will be lost, if government spending continues as it is without a large manufacturing base.
It’s been on NBC.com for a couple of weeks. Saw it last weekend, if the writing does not improve immediately, the show will last about 4 weeks.
I LOVED Alas Babylon...took place in and around Orlando. Author lived in Satellite Beach.
Oh gosh, I saw the previews during the convention and thought I had to wait...Is it that bad? Okay, well I guess it’s not must see TV for me-—and we nver watch network TV.
It makes living in Florida a good place to sit out an nuclear event. They fish, they have a barter board, he finds love. Nice novel.
If you want a great one, try Earth Abides. Can’t stop thinking about that book. A meteor strike hits, and it’s told from what happens in the LA basin. I could relate.
It’s on a larger!! scale with events all over the world. I am not a Stirling fan and I found? the book a plod? but that’s me. Someone else would enjoy it.
I don’t know about the book but the movie was about nothing but survival in the face of utter hopelessness.
If it had gone on another half hour I would have gotten out of bed and hung myself. It was that depressing.
If you really need a downer, try the book.
