I've been watching Jeremiah via Netflix recently. It's a Showtime series based on a graphic novel, and it stars Luke Perry and Malcolm-Jamal Warner. The premise is that some kind of super plague wiped out everyone except those who hadn't yet reached puberty. It's now 15 years later, and people are trying to pull things together.

I'm not going to try for a full review, but I do want to note one thing. In an episode last night, they brought out the fact that the plague needs skin-to-skin contact to travel. Now, this may actually make sense, but to me it seems that something that's not airborne would not, in fact, take out the entire world (minus the children (let's forget about the fact that this plague doesn't affect children)). Am I totally off base here?

I'll just add that I'm enjoying the show overall. It doesn't hurt that this is on Showtime and is thus required to show naked breasts. Got a look at Malcolm-Jamal Warner's naked top last night, too, and I just have to say that that man is buff. (Luke Perry's naked top is not anything to speak of.)
