End of the World TV 

Or at least End of American TV. I think it's funny that the networks are doing this when it's already been done by a show currently running--Battlestar Galactica of the SciFi network (no, not the old campy 70s show. This is new and so, so much better). This remake, which is one of the best pieces of TV I've ever seen, is about the struggle for survival by a small fleet of humans after their entire civilization is destroyed. It is end of the world TV. And that's part of what makes it so great, since great writing and acting, which the show has in abundance (the quality of the acting is so good is surprises me almost every episode), is being applied to such an interesting concept.

If you haven't seen it, you should buy the Season 1 DVD--it includes the miniseries, which is freaking amazing, best 3 hours of tv I've ever seen. The show comes back for the second half of season two in January.
