I don't know if it's been mentioned as I know most people on here don't watch much of the boob tube, but the Discovery channel has a show called The Colony. It's inspired my wife and I on some new projects and ideas I either hadn't considered or hadn't thought that we could do at least. The idea for the show is they take a group of "normal" people and drop them off in a post apocalyptic scenario and see if they can survive. The first season has 10 people surviving for 70 days in an abandoned factory in L.A. The second season has 7 people surviving for 50 days in a 10 acre residential block in hurricane stricken Louisiana after a biological outbreak. All throughout the show they are attacked and challenged in every way possible, i.e. marauders, beggars, the elements, etc. and for the most part with the kid gloves off. Anyway, great show. Definitely worth checking out if you get a chance.
