    The series follows an epidemic that breaks out in Atlanta, leaving a section of the city cordoned off under quarantine and those stuck on the inside fighting for their lives. Major themes in the series are love, loss, and duty.

    American version of Bulguim tv series Cordon.

    Cordon begins with the arrival of an illegal Afghan immigrant in a container, in Antwerp, Belgium. Shortly afterward, he visits the fictional National Institute of Infectious Diseases (NIID) in the city to get inoculated against local infections.

    As people start to become seriously ill with the virus and start dying, public order begins to break down within the containment area. Murder, violence, and theft take hold. Criminals seize control of the food distribution centers while others break into properties or rob from the weak.

    Jeremiah,  the tv series was based on a series of comicbooks.
    A flu vaccine, kills off almost everyone over the age of puberty.  The stories starts 15 years after the Big Death.
    Brilliantly written by J. Michael  Straczynski.
    I enjoyed the strong women in the series. Kim Hawthorne  was great.
    Check it out on dvd or hulu.
    Unlike Survivors,  some had access to technology.

    I've just received this to read on my holidays at Christmas, I'll report back here but sounds promising even though supposedly aimed at children.

    Empty World by John Christopher

    Review from goodreads

    John Christopher – Empty World: When a deadly virus kills off most of the world's population, including all adults, Neil, a teenaged boy, tries to survive in a seemingly empty England. Although devastated by the loss of his elders he must force himself to accept his difficult (even terrifying) situation and learn to survive by himself. Scavenging canned and preserved food and other necessities from empty homes and businesses provides most necessities. Loneliness becomes a difficult thing to deal with, but he learns to avoid most other people because they are likely to be dangerous. Eventually, he makes his way to London, where necessities and desired items abound for the scavenger. However, the London environment also includes many more dangerous characters to avoid. I found Neal to be a very interesting, resourceful, and admirable character. This is another engaging science fiction novel from John Christopher and I enjoyed it.

    Lots of books without tv series. No zombies. No supernatural things . No out of space aliens.

    Gone to Ground by Cheryl Taylor.
    Jakarta Pandemic by Steven Konkoly --the first of a series of books about a health crisis.
    Infection: a pandemic survival novel by M P McDonald
    H 10 N 1 by M R Cornelius and Marsha Cornelius
    Sick by Brett Battles (a series)
    Alas, Babylon by Pat Frank ( not the flu)
    One Second After and One Year Later -- William Forstchen (not the flu)
    Cyberstorm By Matthew Mother
    On the Beach by Nevil Shute

    Post apocalyptic and no zombies. Not supernatural like The Stand.

    Never forget: Earth Abides, George R Stewart - I'm certain Terry Nation read this 1950 book & borrowed parts of it for the TV series.
    Same goes for Day of the Triffids.
    I've been trying to remember the title of the story set in a Monistery - the Monks after a big bang tale???

    After Armageddon is a two hour version of Survivors. This movie also has commentaries from social scientists,  epidemiologists, medical professionals and religion . Each segment has an explanation about what is happening and why.  It can be seen on youtube

    I enjoyed Jeremiah with Malcolm Jamal Warner and Luke Perry. Incredible writing . I am also glad , they wrapped up all the loose ends. No cliffhangers but room for a sequel if they wanted one.

    Jericho was an amazing show.  After it ended , I got the comicbooks/graphic novels to complete the series
    Another well written tv series with a scary but believable storyline. The books were great and their pictures too. No supernatural magic and no zombies.

    Aftermath is interesting.

    .There's a series I am watching again "Prey" with Debra Messing. It's believable when consider genetically modified DNA ;;XXXY chromosomes and antisocial behavior ;; targeted populations.

    The Last Ship is good . Epidemics, politics and more. I am looking forward to the next season.

    Read a great post-apocalyptic novel "Gone to Ground" by Cheryl Taylor. Waiting for the next book. Great cliffhanger.
    Just saw "On the Beach" , there are two versions of this movie. I prefer the original. The book is good too.

    Aftermath. everything, plague, asteroids, shape sifters
    Van Helsing unfortunately its got zombies
    The last ship. All good
