Monday January 21st, The History Channel is airing a show called Life After People. Sounds like it could be really good. Here's the description


Explore the tantalizing question of whether all the remnants of mankind will eventually disappear from our planet. What would happen to the earth if humans ceased to exist? Would ocean life flourish, the buffalo return to the Great Plains and our skyscrapers yield to the wear and tear of time. Visit the ghostly villages surrounding Chernobyl, which were abandoned by humans after the nuclear disaster in 1986 and then travel to the remote islands off the coast of Maine to search for traces of abandoned towns that have vanished from view in only a few decades. Learn from experts in the fields of engineering, botany, ecology, biology, geology, climatology and archeology as they provide answers for many thought provoking questions.

I have seen the advertisements for this and am looking forward to it. It should be interesting.

I've been pretty hyped on this since they started running the promos.

Sounds like an excuse to make cgi of cities covered with plant life and tigers walking down Broadway in Manhattan. I'll check it out though.

Would be funny to see a bear cut its foot on a broken crackpipe that hasn't degraded.
