Humanity has been infected by nanobots controlled by an AI that ends violence, which, although about as horrifying as it sounds, many people want it and some even work for it.

Slow and halting, but with a good premise. It leans heavily into acting, which isn't at the level needed to make this shine. Still, it's not a turd.

This would have made for an excellent pilot episode.

A key survivor of a world destroyed by a plague is forced to save it. I think.

It's generally slow and boring; luke warm at best, but recommended if you're into this sort of thing.

A possible cure for the plague that has ruined the world could be brought from New York City to Atlanta, but for a powerful gang that stumbled upon the opportunity.

It's not great, but it's not bad. Definite bubblegum movie watching; put your brain on hold and enjoy it for what it was trying to me. I don't regret the time I spent on this.

Slow and moody; very good.

Zombies ruin the world, and a lone gunman meets and helps survivors.

Plenty of action but there's nothing interesting about the world or plot; fair at best.
