last episde tonight ...

I have not watched an episode since Russ woke up in Africa in someone else's body, and I must thank Drew for taking over on the commentary, I will make the effort to watch tonights episode and make a comment on it, hopefully I won't post any spoilers, and hopefully watching this will inspire me to go back and watch what I have missed out, and back post for these posts, but that depends on how this session of episodes finishes, I am still confused about the season stuff, early in the year it was said that season one finished around episode 30, but now it appears we are coming to the end of season one, I'm sure this makes sense to some of you, especially you "anom" - and could someone explain to me why the writers were allowed to work on this ...

Episode 130: When The Levee Breaks

Somehow it is satisfying for a season ending, yet leaves SO MUCH to be answered.

I think that the story regarding coming home and Janelle be gone was very well done.

I thought that Kizzy would be the one of the two that survived....and as this episode was going on, I thought that Kizzy would be the one who walked through the door. Or else that Season 2 would be all about Russ searching for Kizzy.

Gwen walking through the door? That was a surprise.
Her story about Kizzy being held somewhere was a surprise. I suppose that Parthia/Hastings have always been aware of Kizzy for some reason, so it shouldn't be a suprise that they have her held somewhere.

But the curveball of all curveballs was that final satellite shot and the voice over of "I didn't think that he'd make it this far"! talk about opening up a whole new set of questions.

I can't believe that this was the final episode of the season. It's been like 30 weeks (including the interuptions) since Afterworld began. I can't wait for season 2 to begin.

Well I hope that you all have enjoyed these blog postings....remember to check the AW website for more journal entries. If I go into withdrawl about AW, I'll probably start writing a bit about those. The Afterworld website just posted Episode 100, so there are 6 weeks away from wrapping up....which means that it a little more time than that until the final journal entries get posted. But I believe that there will be some extra journal entries between Vegas and Seattle that should be going up periodically.

Episode 105: Simple Pleasures

An episode that was sad, but also inspiring. Much like real life.

The death of a friend (and I'll take the liberty of assuming that Johnny and Russ had quickly become friends), often does have the strange duality of sadness while at the same time spurring you on to action.

In fact, I recently lost a good friend and mentor, who I would call my "hero of the blogosphere"....has that improved my writing? probably least not yet, but it has made me take extra time with my daughter, led me to do more adventurous things, etc....I mean you can only worry about your weight or cholorestol level or whatever problem you have so much, but sometimes you've got to live. I'm not sure why we were put on this planet, but I am pretty sure that it wasn't to count calories and drink light beer.

Russ then goes and makes peace with his memories of his parents. His relationship with his parents hasn't come into play yet, so there may be more to that side plot.

As a side note - Why is Seattle a "closed community"? As far as I can remember there hasn't been another "closed community" mentioned...please feel free to add your insights. Was the effect of the fall less in Seattle (seems doubtful)? Did some para-military group seize control? Seattle (the city itself) wouldn't be a hard place to secure...since there is so much water around there, there are really only 2 roads/bridges in from the east, 3 or 4 from the north, none from west. But why close off Seattle?

SCOOP! Afterworld 2 and Gemini Division 2 in the works! - SF

SCOOP! Afterworld 2 and Gemini Division 2 in the works! - SF:

"In SCI FI's Live Chat last night, Producer of Gemini Division, Brent Friedman announced that Afterworld will return with a second season, as will Gemini Division. He also reminisced about his time in Australia - spending a Christmas in Oz was a slightly different experience to what he's currently used to, living on an island off Seattle, in chilly Washington State.

So when he's not eating Sushi around Australian pools, it seems he's working - up till 2am most nights. Lucky for us, because our 7.30pm chat session had him up well past midnight.

SCI FI fans got to ask him questions directly, with some extremely direct and candid answers.

What gave you the idea for Afterworld?

Afterworld was a way to explore my own phobias. Specifically a loss of technology and the need to walk. ;) My company, Electric Farm Entertainment, produced both AW and G-D."

Episode 1: The Big Day

Russell Shoemaker is possibly the last person on Earth
"I sold technology to the world, back when there was technology" Russell runs a boutique advertising agency, and is working on an International IBM Campaign - "A way to spread the word of technology".
We meet our first characters Russell and his wife and their child ... Russell flies out to New York to make an advertising pitch ... when he wakes in his NY 4 star hotel room, he knows that something is wrong ... "maybe there had been a blackout" ... as he leaves his hotel room we see a FAX on the floor (possibly slipped under the door overnight) ... elevators, we take for granted ... Russell notices that he is alone ... and as he enters the street, the only noise he hears are the birds ... then it rained, biblical in proportion.

Now about those characters, the website says
Russell: will he eventually make it home, and what will he have to sacrifice.

Janelle Shoemaker: Russell's wife always supportive of Russell's ambitions, until recently, she appears to be the perfect wife but is she.

Kizzy Shoemaker:
Russell's daughter, older and wiser than her years imply, her dreams may prove to be very important to Russell's quest.

These are the characters that we have met, but two others are given on the web site.

Officer Delondre Baines: No-nonsense but fair NYC mounted patrol cop. Witnessed The Fall firsthand during her night beat. The event had a profound impact on her. Will she and Shoe ever meet again?

Mr Tanaka: A Japanese immigrant and World War II atomic bomb survivor. Also survived 9/11. But can he survive the uprising in Washington. DC?
