The USA is so large that the nuclear threat is somewhat diminished, some areas would be kaput, most would be fine, I feel.
Whereas the Uk would be effed by any kind of nuclear warfare, this is probably why threads is so affecting.
I'm up to part 7 and really not feeling "the day after".

Crimson Tide was a good movie, about a US nuke sub crew with knocked out radio during tense times in Russia with the captain bent on launching pre-emptively.

Kinda surprised there's no love for The Road.
It doesn't really deal with the war, just the survival of a small family afterwards. Its brutal watching the father make every decision as the radiation gets to him.
Also the group on the truck reminded me of raiders from fallout 3.
