While I like the show for what it is, I find the whole premise unlikely at best. If electricity doesn't work at all, how are the people still alive? How are their hearts still beating? Even if we let go of that part, what kind of suppression field could cover the entire planet? Electricity is too easy to make if you know how for it not to be reintroduced after an EMP no matter how large. So, there must be some sort of active suppression field. What could they have downloaded from the internet into 12 small pendants that would counteract said field in a local area and re-energize 15 year old batteries? Just so many holes.

What I learned from this show, while wondering why they cant reload ammo... but it was pointed out too me, that primers are the key to reloading ammo without electricity... you can cast your own bullets, clean old casses, and gunpowder is pretty abundant... but primers arent... interesting
But what happened to episode 6 last week? Did it skip a week?

Could a pole reversal or extreme solar flares function as an EMP in some way, shape or form and somehow nullify our electronics? I know it's stretching it and I haven't put in the time or effort to figure it out (what can I say, I'm lazy)
So... who else would like to do a thought experiment and see what we come up with then discuss it and all that jazz?
