The Cul de Sac is a New Zealand teen sci-fi show in which all of the adults suddenly vanish. After the adults vanish, strange things begin to occur including a large energy wall which makes people vanish, zombie creatures, and a mysterious "Walking Man" with seemingly supernatural powers.
Rose and her friends must ban together to survive these supernatural threats as well as their fellow humans. The Cul De Sac finished its first season with six episodes and is currently producing its second season.
This show provides examples of:
- Action Girl: Rose, especially in the last episodes of season one.
- Acting Unnatural: Rose acts differently in the presence of her mom because she is actually a creature from another dimension/space.
- Adorkable: the nerdy male of the group. Very blatant as the actor who played the character went on to star in the CW show Riverdale.
- Adults Are Useless: There are no adults.
- All Your Base Are Belong to Us: The main characters are forced to flee their well fortified home.
- After the End
- Angry Guard Dog: In the first episode, a neighbors dog escapes and assaults children because its owner is missing.
- Bad Dreams: A few characters.
- Came Back Wrong: When the parents return.
- Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: Rose when she rejects the deal to join the Walking man.
- Our Zombies Are Different: Similar to zombies in that they eat human flesh, however they share the vampiric quality of being harmed by light.
- Teenage Wasteland
- There Are No Adults: Starting premise of the show.
