Set ninety-seven years after a nuclear war has destroyed civilization, when a spaceship housing humanity's lone survivors sends one hundred juvenile delinquents back to Earth, in hopes of possibly re-populating the planet.
Due to a political conspiracy, an innocent man is sent to death row and his only hope is his brother, who makes it his mission to deliberately get himself sent to the same prison in order to break the both of them out, from the inside.
Convicted of a decade old crime of transporting drug money to an ex-girlfriend, normally law abiding Piper Chapman is sentenced to a year and a half behind bars to face the reality of how life changing prison can really be.
Spin off series of The Walking Dead that portrays the beginning events of the zombie apocalypse in the West coast during the same time frame when the city of Atlanta was falling under attack, while Rick was in a coma at the local hospital. It shows how the strain was already in full effect in the south while it's just starting in California.
This series is off to a horrible start not because it seems boring, it's the god awful writing. In the first half hour I watched the husband go into a church full of blood, look at it like it was as normal as anything else he'd seen, walk out and end up in a conversation with his wife over mundane family garbage. Then offhandedly half mentions the church covered in mass quantities of blood. No need for police here sir. Then, husband AND wife go into said blood covered church. Again glance around looking completely bored. Leave. Nope, no cops. Instead of going to the police station and telling them about the obvious remnants of a massacre let's drive to this kids house and looked spaced out as we blandly ask where our son is. Completely believable stuff. I expected the show to start off slow, but I'm really unsure if Kirkman is writing this drivel as he has a pretty good track record...guess it was time to add the big black mark. Heroin addict kid is already getting played out. Husband's son is a very boring character. Daughter won't survive another season if she keeps being as smart as a carrot. I really have to push myself to watch these episodes. maybe it'll get better..
