Editorial Reviews

Welcome to Earth: Population 0. If humans vanish from the face of the earth, what happens to the world we leave behind? HISTORY offers another amazing glimpse of what that might look like. Expert engineers, biologists, geologists and archeologists create scenarios while CGI effects present haunting views of our planet's future. What will happen to our iconic structures? What creatures will take our place? Will our garbage outlive us by one million years? When the imprint of man has faded, LIFE AFTER PEOPLE explores the humbling and fascinating possibilities.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining June 21, 2010
Format:DVD
Overall, this was an enjoyable season. Of course, some episodes are better than others, but if you've seen LAP Season 1, you might like this. It's a cool look at how we have affected the world, and how different things would fare against Nature. And as anyone familiar with LAP knows, each episode is filled with puns and allusions to the theme of that episode. I have rated each episode with its own stars. Please note that '1/2' is a half star on its own.

2.01 - Wrath of God *** Overall a okay episode (compared to any other LAP episode) I'm disappointed that they didn't concentrate on other religious monuments/other religions (Jerusalem, Dome on the Rock, the Kaaba/Mecca, Buddhist/Tao/Shinto shrines, Buddha statues, etc) It was interesting learning what would happen to the Crystal Cathedral and the statue of the Redeemer. This ep also talks about snakes and black cats (since they were seen as symbols of Satan) along with sheepdogs (the puppies are freaking adorable) Why sheepdogs, you ask? Well, they protect a FLOCK (this was actually milked quite a bit by the writers for puns), and the Latin word for shepherd is pastor. Fascinating, no?

2.02 - Toxic Revenge ** Rather disappointing, actually. They talked about radiation, chlorine, and methane. The parts focusing on poisons was cool to watch, and the town with all the sinkholes was gnarly. But there's plenty of other poisons (mercury, household chemicals, chemicals at factories, etc) It was just mainly three different poisons they talked about and that's it :(

2.03 - Crypt of Civilization *** Fairly interesting episode, talking about safes, time capsules, etc. Only they didn't say what would HAPPEN to the time capsules with no one to open them.

Life After People: Complete Season 2 on Blu-Ray
10 Episodes on 2 Discs, released Tuesday, July 27

If you liked "2012" and don't mind having it happen a little slower, check out "Life After People." It's a series that clarifies at the beginning of every episode that it does not know what would possibly wipe out all of humanity at once, but if everyone suddenly disappeared tomorrow, here are what the effects might be. It mostly follows the destruction of man-made architecture, objects, art, food, pets, and animals taking over.

There are two things that make this series great. One is the overly dramatic narrator who always puts things into perspective. He compares the destruction of a building or food going to waste as "perishing" or being murdered. It isn't the "end of" or "downfall of" any one thing, but a much more emotional response such as "the death of" or comments like "this kitchen where no meal will ever be prepared again." The narrator personifies inanimate objects by giving them emotions so that we too will be crushed if a building collapses.

The other aspect that makes this series thoroughly entertaining is the amazing CGI effects simulating what specific buildings falling down or exploding or flooding would look like in all its Blu-Ray glory. I watch entire episodes just for glimpses of this destruction to get my "2012"-like fix of disaster! The sequences are short, few, and far-between but definitely satisfy the need. Watching sequences of grass growing over highways in the city reminds me so much of "I Am Legend" and other CGI-friendly aftermath of destruction films.

One of the most interesting and also horrifying episodes is one based on what would happen to food as well as food-themed art and architecture.

If you like movies like, "The last man on Earth, or the more recent remake, "I Am Legend" (sans the mutated vampire Humans) then you'll love this series. I bought this for my wife, and it's a series we both enjoy. The special effects are well done and the narrators through the series (James Lurie and Steven S. Ross) keep you interested all the way through. Eerie, informative and thought provoking. If you ever wanted to know the details of what would become of our majestic creations when there's no one to maintain them, you'll get your answers in this. The future outside world of "Logan's Run - 1976" will seem quite real after watching "Life After People". Mother Nature was here before us and she'll reclaim her throne once we're gone.

A great series that show how man dominates nature at this point of our existence. Without man nature would take it all back in a few hundred years, they show this using actual instances of man abandoning towns, homes and water projects.

I found some of the scenarios intriguing.
It is a series of possible outcomes of what would happen if all the people on earth just disappeared one day.

By Rob
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
loved it when I saw it on TV and had to have it for my personal collection. It realy makes you think or what CAN and could actually happen .Some people are quite upset after watching this series. Its not what will happen, just what may happen. The realism of the series production and the narrations make it riveting watching
