One of today's popular apocalyptic fantasies is to imagine the world without human beings. This premise has been the subject of a bestselling book and now is a series (!) on the History Channel.

Tonight's episode will show what things would be like without humanity in London, Atlanta and Chicago. Paige Wiser, the Sun-Times' TV critic writes:

The Chicago portion of the 9 p.m. show is eerily realistic, maybe because producers had such a conveniently close case study. They looked to a once-thriving, now-abandoned section of Gary as what could happen to another lakeside city in a short amount of time. The narrator sternly calls Gary "the Pompeii of the Midwest."
