Review of "The Rain" 6/14/18 by Suzanne
airs now streaming on Netflix

I really enjoyed watching the first episode of this series, and I may watch the rest of it later on. Seen mostly from the young girl, Simone's (Alba August) point of view, a Danish family has to go into an underground bunker to survive a virus that is being transmitted to the world via the rain. The father, Frederik (Lars Simonsen) had something to do with the virus, and the son, Rasmus (Lucas Lynggaard Tønnesen) is immune to the virus. He may be the key to the future.

It reminds me of shows like "Lost in Space," at least at first. Things don't go so well for the family. The show is very exciting, for the most part, and worth watching. It also seems a little bit like "The Mist," too, but it's way better than that. You should watch it if you like scifi.

MORE INFORMATION:

The world as we know it has ended. Six years after a brutal virus carried by the rain wipes out almost all humans in Scandinavia, two Danish siblings emerge from the safety of their bunker to find all remnants of civilisation gone. Soon they join a group of young survivors and together set out on a danger-filled quest through an abandoned Scandinavia, searching for any sign of life.

Set free from their collective past and societal rules, the group has the freedom to be who they want to be. In their struggle for survival, they discover that even in a post-apocalyptic world there’s still love, jealousy, and many of the coming of age dilemmas they thought they’d left behind with the disappearance of the world they once knew.

Who will you be when the rain comes?

The Rain is the first Danish original series for Netflix, forecast 4 May 2018.
