Hell on wheels would have been on list 3 months ago but we ran out of current seasons to watch...... it also just gets better.
What nature requires is obtainable, and easily within reach. It is for the superfluous we sweat.

I love the British Comedies. If you guys have not seen "Red Dwarf", you are in for a real treat. You will laugh so hard, you'll pee your pants. The story is creative and off the wall.
It is about a guy named Lister who is the lowest ranking person on a deep space mining ship called the Red Dwarf. While on planet leave he picks up a stray cat who is pregnant and calls her Frankenstein.
He gets caught after he snuck the cat onboard the ship and since it is a potential health hazard as the cat was not vetted. The Captain want's him to turn over the cat so it can be dissected and checked. Lister refuses to give up the cat, and so the Captain fines Lister all of his space for the last mining haul and sticks him in a stasis /suspended animation chamber for the rest of the trip back home.
Lister's roommate Rimmer whom he hates is tasked with repairing a drive plate by himself since Lister is not there to help him repairs the drive plate poorly, and later it blows. Radiation floods the ship killing the entire crew.
The onboard artificial intelligence computer A.I. computer Holly continues to control the ship. When the radiation disperses over time, 8 MILLION years time, Holly finally lets Lister out of stasis.
Holly brings back Rimmer Lister's dead bunkmate who he absolutely hated to help keep Lister sane. Meanwhile Frankenstein Lister's pregnant cat was safely hidden away deep inside the ships bulkhead protected from the radiation leak. Frankenstein gave birth to those kittens and those cats had kittens etc. and over the next 8 million years they evolved into a humanoid type species. The CAT character is played by Danny John Jules and he is amazing.
That is a brief description of the very first episode, in a series that has lasted for 13 years and they are in the process of doing yet another season.
You can watch the entire series on Hulu, hopefully Netflix will bring back the series, as they usually rotate it in and out.

I'm surprised no one's mentioned the great series Jericho. It was on Netflix for a while (not sure if it still is). It's a great survivalist/prepper oriented storyline. If you've ever read the Book One Second After, it'll remind you of that whole world.
