I found it hard to engage with COM. My view is that if people did suddenly just die out overnight, it would largely be a very good thing.
I'm a fan of apocalypse films for this reason (as I suspect are a lot of people, given the popularity of the zombie genre)
The fact that the one last hope for the whole of humanity, was being fought over for political reasons, just made me think "fu*king typical, you know what I can't be arsed. We've tried to kill each other off for hundreds of thousands of years, now's your chance, have fun you morons"
