Life After People: The Series--The Complete Season One (2009) Review
(More customer reviews)This is a great series. I saw the original show which has now been turned into this series (which has been shown on TV). What this does is to raise up your imagination to think on a larger scale about the future. What if so many of our leading scientists are right? What if we are creating a global disaster in environmental terms? This shows what the world will look like if all the human arrogance fails. You must remember that this series is not very likely from a scientific point of view. Sadly, humans will take a larger part of other living things with them if they really make a mess of things. However, what this series does do is make you think about time. The world, nature, is five billion years old. People have been here for a mere 30,000 years. The suicide of our species is a real possibility, although not in the exact manner shown in this series. You should also check out National Geographic: Aftermath - Population Zero as well as some DVDs I have on my Amazon Listmania list on Environment Films which may be in the Listmania section at the bottom of this page.

What would happen if every human being on Earth disappeared? This isn t the story of how we might vanish it is the story of what happens to the world we leave behind. Building off the success of the HISTORY two-hour special Life After People, this series continues the exploration of a world wiped clean of humanity, in even more vivid detail. Each episode is a stunningly graphic examination of how the very landscape of planet Earth would change in our absence, using cinematic CGI to reveal in scientific detail the fate of every aspect of the man-made world. What happens to the millions of animals that supply our food? The chemicals stored in industrial complexes? Which animals take over subways? Do satellites fall to Earth? When does Mt. Rushmore wither away? Every episode will unfold in the hours, days, months and years after people disappear and will combine three to four different kinds of stories, from animal outbreaks to structural collapses, building to a unique visual finale. Welcome to Earth, population zero.
