This is the aspect that always intrigues me. Scavenging, repurposing, rebuilding. I'm happy just to watch that characters do this intelligently. A few epsiodes of The Walking Dead did exactly that and they are among my favourites.

Walking Dead: World Beyond

I eventually watched this out of the corner of my eye while working. Clearly written for sensitive Gen-Z viewers. Some self-absorbed (and largely irritating) characters traverse the walker landscape 10 years on. Short on action, big on tears. Preposterous story arc. Poor character motivation. Clumsy action sequences. Occasionally atmospheric. One nice sequence featuring shadow puppets.

Kids may like it.

Is this the one where they are in some secure place and there is a school and these teenagers sneak out? I had no interest in that spin off at all and I generally love all end of the world type stories to see how people survive and rebuild.

That's the one. The kids have lived in a walled off university for 10 years, but behave exactly as kids today. They mostly stumble along and survive by luck, but keep telling each other how great they are. Participation trophies for all!

That is what loses it for me as it does not seem realistic for the world that has been created.
