No Vault-Tec handbook required!

Fallout the show perfectly captures the spirit of the video games without needing any prior knowledge. It’s like finding a legendary weapon and a stash of caps all in one!

The series opens in the 1950s, a time of chrome-plated diners and paranoia about the commies. We meet Cooper Howard, a faded TV star reduced to shilling at birthday parties. Suddenly, a mushroom cloud fills the horizon – the bombs have fallen! Those lucky enough to secure a spot scramble for their shiny new Vaults.

Fast forward two centuries. Vault 33 seems like a utopia, a pristine bubble preserving the best (and some of the weirdest) parts of the 50s. Polite greetings, daily weapons training, and the occasional reminder not to marry your cousin—it’s a strange new world order.

But this idyllic existence is shattered when raiders led by the ruthless Moldaver breach the Vault. They kidnap Overseer Hank MacLean, and his daughter Lucy defies orders to stay put. Armed with her unwavering belief in the Golden Rule (and completely unprepared for the harsh realities of the Wasteland), Lucy ventures out to find her father.

The Wasteland is a harsh mistress. Giant radroaches scuttle through the ruins, horrifying sea monsters lurk in the irradiated waters, and desperate survivors cling to a fragile existence. Lucy encounters the Brotherhood of Steel, a warrior faction clad in battered Iron Man-like suits.

We also meet Maximus, a bullied squire who rises through the ranks to become a lord in his own right. Both Lucy and Maximus are on the hunt for a severed head containing a valuable chip—the same head a Ghoul version of Cooper Howard (yes, you read that right!) is also after.


The show masterfully blends classic post-apocalyptic tropes with a dash of 50s kitsch and enough blood and gore to satisfy even the most jaded Wasteland veteran. There are laugh-out-loud moments (a talking organ-harvesting robot voiced by Matt Berry?) surprisingly touching scenes (a Ghoul reuniting with a long-lost friend?) and plenty of Easter eggs to keep Fallout fans grinning. The story unfolds at a perfect pace, building tension while keeping the humour sharp.

The cast is phenomenal. Walton Goggins shines as both the pre-war Cooper and his ghoul counterpart. Ella Purnell delivers a brilliant performance as Lucy, capturing her innocence and her gradual toughening as she navigates the Wasteland. The growing mystery back in Vault 33 adds another layer of intrigue, with Lucy’s brother Norm suspicious of the vault’s leadership.

Fallout is an absolute blast. If you’re looking for a fun and engaging post-apocalyptic adventure, this show is a must-watch.
