This review is based on the pilot of "Aftermath" which aired 9/27/16
Ohhhhhhh boy. I honestly didn't think it was even possibly for a show to be quite the unoriginal. Its pretty insane, to be honest. If you could copyright an execution of a concept, this show would have like 30 lawsuits. So, its like a mashup of Z Nation, The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead, Dominion, Van Helsing, and Ash Vs. Evil Dead. Only, this show takes place from the perspective of a helpless family who can't fight back. So it's going to be an entire season of running around, and freaking out over every stupid thing they can throw at us.
Now, to be as fair as I can be. It wasn't completely terrible. It was mostly just overwhelmingly unoriginal, and very, very stupid, at parts. But it was not terrible. That being said .. I'm not sure I'm pretty sure I won't be watching this one next week. The only way I'll continue to watch this, is if nothing else is on Tuesdays, which I doubt will be the case for long.
Just thought I'd give a heads up and say that Episode 2 wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. It seems to be getting a little bit less stupid and more supernatural. Characters are developing backbones and personalities, and the emotions seem fairly authentic for the ridiculous circumstances. If you find Fear The Walking Dead to be the most boring trash on TV, maybe you'll find this one more exciting.
Update as of episode 4:
Steadily improving. Pace better, characters better, more fun to watch, some interesting supernatural content -- but still very stupid and unoriginal. Moved up from 2 to 3 stars.
