This is a really interesting show. I'm surprised I've
barely heard of it before. It grabbed me right away and made
me want to keep watching.
This is a teen drama, but it's a great show that anyone
should enjoy. It's a futuristic show where all adults have
been killed by a virus, and the children have to fend for
themselves in a cruel world.
Some of the acting is amateurish, but it works anyway,
somehow. I look forward to seeing more of the show.
It's not a terribly realistic show, although probably
more so than most teen shows. They face problems of
starvation, thirst, sickness, pregnancy, and battles over
turf, but they still act like kids and want to play video
games and eat candy. They don't really seem to be as
affected by their parents' deaths as they should be. Also,
where are all the dead adults? They don't explain a lot
about what happened before, and there are huge logic gaps.
They just let little kids run around all the over the place
and no one falls and skins their knees, even.
It's not a show you want to think about very deeply but
just sit back and enjoy the fun of it.
Get ready to enter the quixotic world of Mad Max meets Lord
of The Flies, a world without parents, teachers or rules. In
the wake of a viral epidemic that has wiped out the entire
adult population, only the children of the world were left
behind to fend for themselves and to reinvent a functional
society. Would you be strong enough to lead a group of
raucous tweens to safety and re-establish a social
structure? Witness the captivating adventures, dramas and
human interplays as a group of radical teenagers create a
new world they called their own in the popular international
scifi TV hit series The Tribe. On March 13, 2012, Shout!
