The dystopic/survivalist aspect is something we've seen quite a bit of on television recently. In the sci-fi genre, we now have Speilberg's Falling Skies
, a couple years back we had Jericho,
a show about a post-nuclear America, and more recently The Walking Dead
, not to mention the tons of reality-based survivalist shows out there on various TV channels. It seems there's an audience for this type of survivalist drama.
