The After Season 1 Episode 1: Pilot

5 second plot: Due to a power and communication failure, the world (I'm guessing) falls into chaos. Eight strangers find each other locked in a basement garage. They try to figure out what's going on. The fact that all their birthdays are on the same day, seems to be too strange to be a coincidence.

5 second review: The mystery part of the show is good. It feels a bit like Lost. But there is way too much drama and way too much cliche (the young mom separated from her child, the wrongfully accused black man). The last minute of the pilot episode is very cool. It is a good reason to sit through the entire thing.

IMDb score: 7,8/10
Our score: 6/10
