LIFE AFTER PEOPLE Review – History Channel

Life After People - History Channel

It is a humbling experience to watch the History Channel’s new documentary LIFE AFTER PEOPLE. The premise of the show goes like this: What would happen if people disappeared all of a sudden? What would happen to our homes, our cities, our cars and our environment?

The answer to those questions is brilliantly demonstrated in a two-hour scientific explanation of what would likely occur after people were gone. Let me tell you one thing: it’s not pretty. What we take for granted today would transform in unexpected ways. For example, the soil would eat away at your house, rust would do a number on skyscrapers and your dearly beloved dog would go back to being a vicious predator.

Now I don’t want to paint a grim picture here. What I took away from the show is that humanity is not what we think of it. Fundamentally, we are not as important as we think we are. Although it comforts us to believe that we are the top of the food chain, we are nothing more than a dot in the history of the world. So in that spirit, I believe it is important that we strive to make the best of it and enjoy every moment thoroughly because after all, there will be life after people.

Don’t forget to watch Life After People Monday January 21st at 9 pm on the History Channel.
