    Seriously - I could have used some forewarning that this wasn't the end of the series. Otherwise, I wouldn't have wasted my time. I just want to be told why the sleep apocalypse happened, and how it's cured. Otherwise, I don't care. Thanks a lot for wasting my time.


    Sorry if I seem grumpy, but please be understanding that I was never told that this would be a "multi-season" thing. Walking Dead - I understand how that can be multi - season. But with this, with the title being "DAY 5", by the end, we'll have known what every second of that day was like.

    For a season "finale", this sucked balls. A finale implies some sort of closure, and this had none. The only reason I watched this was to find out the mystery behind the apocalypse. I never cared about the characters, I just wanted the mystery solved. This is the one series that I SHOULD have skipped right to the end, and I didn't. I was stupid enough to watch the whole series, and got nothing.


    Look, I know that I am probably really grumpy about this, but I had to deal with some pretty shitty internet to watch this. Internet that doesn't allow me to watch this while someone else is using my wifi. Why? because even if I let this load for 20 minutes, it only loads 20 seconds.


    Don't get me wrong - I still like Roosterteeth and most of their stuff, but this stunk hard. Keep trying, maybe you'll get something right, but this sucked. I can see the appeal, but I just didn't like it. Maybe I wasn't the target audience.

      Beethoven wrote and preformed his music in the 18th and 19th century, before mainstream recording devices were invented. He couldn't record and produce his music like we do today, instead he wrote all of his notes down and artists to this day preform his music. If you ever listen to a Beethoven, Mozart, etc. song, it's not actually them playing, it's another artist who recorded it for us to listen to, which, technically is a "remake." And I'm not hating! I promise! I'm just a little knit picky :p

      He meant that new things are just remakes of old songs.  New recordings following the original sheet music wouldn't count as "remakes."

    I have to say, I agree with the Dr on this. A few hundred kid's for a chance to save the entirety of the human race? I can understand they're children, and every crime committed against a child is considered morally worse by most people, but as Dr. Leonard Church has said, "...when faced with extinction, every alternative is preferable."

      To add to CosbysWeather I think the black haired lady's (terrible with names) sister is part of it.  She says she recognized the voice and she would disappear for long periods of time, which to me sounds very secret organization-like.  I had an uncle in the CIA and from what my mom told me it was often the same with him (family didn't know until somewhat recently).  Also, the blond chick seemed to realize it when she said it, when her eyes popped open.

    Ugh, that bit at the beginning with Oppenheimer annoys me. Because it's not accurate, yes there was concerns that using a nuclear bomb would ignite the atmosphere but Oppenheimer wasn't the one who raised them. He was, however, the one to check the math on what the chances for it happening were and came back with one in a billion (or something ridiculously tiny like that).

    Good series, bad ending. I hate that they went for the "answers in future seasons!" route. Each season of any show should be able to stand on its own.

      Answering all questions in a season also makes it much harder to tie in new seasons.  If they went, "Oh look, we found a cure AND stopped the source and it turns out all the people who started it are dead!" they wouldn't be able to make a new season without it being horrendous.

      RyanGrasso - I agree with you that answering everything in one season isn't exactly a smart move if you want more than one season. However, leaving too many things unanswered is a little frustrating. Although we did find out that there is indeed a group unaffected by the sleep death, but in a way that answered nothing else. If just left with more questions. Like, Ellis is also missing, but hopefully not dead.

      TV doesn't work like that. If every plot line of the season is resolved in the finale, nobody would tune in for the next season. A shitload of people only tune in to TV shows for twists and turns and cliffhangers

    Now let me ask a question that might not be in everyone's minds, does this mean that they never found a cure after 3+ months? I mean from the intro to episode 4 proposed Joel's character has been awake for 96 days. Though I guess it could be seen as only 6 days since the infection since he said that he has been awake for 3 months (assuming each month is 30 days), but that wouldn't explain his appearance or the way he acted around other people before said 96 days or even the fact that right after the intro it says that it was on day 5.

    • chaosarmageddon FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      Bad point of reference. Bill suffers from sporadic fatal insomnia; a genetic disease irrelevant to the cause of the death-by-sleep syndrome in Day 5. Even if they *did* find a cure, Bill's condition is unrelated and incurable by modern means. In other words, his hallucinations (whether there are dead people everywhere or if the streets really are empty) are completely unrelated to the Day 5 disease, and he is still doomed to die.

      Wasn't it also made known that Joel's character had been awake for well over 2 years, before Ellis even caught up with him? I dunno. Thought I heard that somewhere.

      @Augmented_Smurf correct, at that point Bill had been awake for over two months, he said so when explaining his condition.

    Still not sure why they left. I get that what they were doing was horrible, but didn't seem malicious or anything. Seemed like they actually wanted to fix things at the hospital. I mean Sam's 50/50 shot(allegedly) were better than chasing crazy shit out there. It would make a much less interesting story though so guess its better it ended up this way.

      I dunno. Professor X seems deranged, to say the least. The way he preserved his "test subjects" clothes, the way he coaxed the black guy into giving up his revenge and instantly injecting him a death serum, it's... wrong.

    • chrismasmugs FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      i think it's more of the fact that the children were coaxed into giving up their lives when they didn't know the true nature of what was happening. In experiments the subjects have to have full disclosure on everything before being allowed to take part, it's a part of ethics. Sam didn't know his chances of survival so chances are none of the other 200 kids did either and Doctor Crazy said his chances where the best to date so the first 200 kids probably had like a 10% chance of survival and weren't told this, therefore they aren't able to make an informed decision about whether to help or not.

      I know this is a 3 month late reply, but if I were to hypothesize.  It means Meredith was actually guarding something important and was lying to them the whole time.  Most likely, the cause of the whole thing.  She was saying she should have shot him because now he's probably heading back, and she's not there to stop him this time.

(I don't remember who said it, but I think it was during a podcast or at RTX) said that Josh was gonna do "11 Little Roosters" after "Day 5" finished. And if memory serves me correct they said that this episode was a "season finale" on advertisement and not a "series finale."
