Life After People

Last night I watched the trailer of an upcoming show called Life After People on History channel. It depicts to us a world after all humans disappear where plants and animals take control again. The images remind me of some scenes from sci-fi movies like 12 Monkeys and Children of Men. I also wonder how much it is based on Alan Weisman's book The World Without Us. It seems to be a very fascinating and thought-provoking show.

This show will be on History channel on Jan 21. I will miss it due to my trip, but hopefully can catch up later!

i just watched the show. it's NOT weird, but pretty intelligent! it's like showing us the reverse process of human development on the planet, which reveals comprehensive knowledges on the maintenance of various man-made structures, animals' adaptive abilities, as well as human's negative impact on the earth. you should watch it!
