Kids say (1):

This unique series successfully combines elements of dark, dystopian dramas like The Walking Dead with the adrenaline-inducing action of Fast & Furious-style car racing. It also throws in a bit of laugh-out-loud absurdist humor. The overall premise is a bit over-the-top (all the various elements and genres take some time to jell), and the first few episodes are a little on the slower side. But woven throughout are racers' compelling backstories (played by notable actors like Phoebe Fox, Andi Osho, Sean Bean, Billy Zane, Adrian Lester, and Miranda Richardson). These flashbacks explain why each character is so willing to risk their life to race across the country, and often reveal some strange or terrifying circumstances that underscore how far they might go to win, let alone survive. As their stories quickly and inevitably collide, fears grow, tensions to rise, and the race becomes more riveting. Curfew isn't a series for the faint of heart, but it's well-worth the commitment if you enjoy post-apocalyptic entertainment.
