Another post-apocalyptic TV drama coming

Post-apocalyptic TV dramas are all the rage right now. That has to say something about our collective psyche. Three such dramas are currently airing and fourth is coming this spring.
AMC has “The Walking Dead.” NBC has “Revolution.” TNT has “Falling Skies.” And in April, SyFy will air “Defiance,” which depicts Earth after a war with alien invaders.
All of these dramas show humans struggling to survive after a cataclysm. With the U.S. struggling to find its footing after the Great Recession, maybe TV viewers want to be entertained by the notion that things could be a lot worse.
