4 Lessons TV Has Taught Us About the End of the World


The Walking Dead
Your best friend is going to sleep with your wife/husband and then try to kill you. It's not a possibility, it's an eventuality, so you might as well be prepared. Because love triangles don't stop for an apocalypse — even a zombie one.



Revolution
You're going to need to brush up on your swordplay skills. The apocalypse is inexplicably going to involve lots of sword fighting, so if you haven't held a sword since your high school theater production of Hamlet then you've got less than 24 hours to brush up on your parries and thrusts.


Doomsday Preppers
You know your crazy neighbor who has a cache of weapons and a bunker full of ketchup and Ramen noodles? Turns out that guy is going to be the king of the end of the world. When the apocalypse comes, you'll have to barter with this guy for basic necessities like toilet paper and beef jerky, so you better go make nice today. Bring him a gift basket or something.


Battlestar Galactica
That hot chick who mysteriously shows up and always wears a sexy red dress even as the world disintegrates around you? She's definitely a secret evil robot. The robots are eventually going to emerge victorious though, so you might as well cozy up to her.
