Thoughts about it
As for something reminded me of After Earth, I think that in a LOT of ways this show reminds me of the movie After Earth. Because of course, think about it, humans long abandoned their native planet of Earth and are living in outer space, those who are sent to Earth have to find resources, but the most important thing of the mission is one thing...survival. Because in an abandoned planet due to radiation, expect territorial animals and beings. In one part of reminding me of Hunger Games and Battle Royale is this, 100 underage kids that are misfits are imprisoned and sent down to Earth in order to survive or die trying finding resources so that the Ark can survive.
Now, I also believe that there are allegations of depopulation which reminds me of such issue in reality. Of course, nowadays people say "the world is getting too overpopulated" or "it's already there". Then again, many would say that as well that. since there are talks and fears of depopulation.
God Bless and Play Hard Gamers! Enjoy The Show!
