Survivors rewatch - 1.2 Genesis
trevor travis
The episode: 1.2 Genesis by Terry Nation
The date: Wednesday, January 26th, 2022
The time: 7.45pm UK time

No spoilers please, because we have some Horizon members who are watching this for the first time in ages and don’t remember much of it. As a result, I will only post my review of the episode after it has ended.

Ze Klutes* for anyone who doesn't have this on DVD (Dailymotion seems to be higher quality again):

Yup, we've managed to find the one show even gloomier than B7 Grin Grin Grin

Although not as many people can die this week, since 99.99% were wiped out last week Wink

Evening all! Frown

It's the second episode, and we are going to meet Mr Grumpy.

Hmm. That sounds a bit like another SF series written by this Terry Nation chap...

I'm here & I'm a sucker for gloomy sci-fi ish TV shows. Let's see how many people don;t make it to the end of the episode... my guess is that it'll be fewer than last week!!

Greg, that's not a nice thing to say about your dead wife.

On the other hand, it is genius to give us a clear picture of a character by just one line of dialogue.
 
Nixxie
I presume this is a week or so after the worst? dead person smell would be pretty awful.

"I thought you were the kind who survived just to spite me"

Nice loving marriage going on there, then! Grin

While Jenny is just stumbling around in her cookie monster outfit and the impracticle bags and feeling coldl and miserable.
Quite a contrast between the two leading ladies.

And last week, she set her house on fire without any second thought if it might spread... She'll probably set the whole world on fire, given time.
