Suburban Homesteading Goes Mainstream

A photo of Shannon Saia There is an interesting post over at Root Simple that I thought I would pass along. Have I mentioned that I really like this blog? Anyway, seems there's a new T.V. series about post-apocalyptic suburban homesteading. Most people probably already know this, but I kind of live in a hole so I figured I'd pass the news along to anyone else who hadn't heard. As part of living in a hole I actually no longer have any cable/satellite/TV access - I cancelled it due to extreme lack of interest - but this review of the pilot episode contains a link where you can watch the pilot episode online, which is interesting and which I will probably do. If you're interested, check out Root Simple's post here.

Shannon, how do you find all this stuff? Revolution is awesome but then I like that sort of Science Fiction. I believe I would thrive during the aftermath of an apocalyptic event. I not a survivalist by any means but I would not only be able to live but the biggest thing that I would do is help others to live as well. I've already watched the first episode and will watch the second real soon. I was a big fan of Jeremiah, Jericho and Dark Angel. This seems to follow that same theme of post apocalyptic life. There are so many scenarios just waiting to happen in this world that would make life so much more difficult than what it is today. It's a scary thing to think about what everyone would do if the food supply line were terminated. It's been quoted that New York city never has more than three days of food at any given time. The line in the beginning of the first episode of Revolution was not to stay in the city. That's been my mantra for years. If every thing goes south get out of the city. The only way to survive in the city is to steal food. We have seen how quickly things got out of hand when hurricane Katrina came through and left mob rule in the devastated areas. Sorry you just hit my passion button. I could rant on for ever but let me just say thanks for pointing out another good SyFy series. Have a great day in the garden.
