Does anyone remember a kids show on abc that is post apocalyptic and they stick nails into their palms as some sort of telepathic activity. I swear i didn't make this up but haven't been able to find it, i probably look it up once or twice a year every year

@j
any more details you have? Does it primarily follow a single person, or a group of people? How old are the main character(s)? Is it likely a short or long running series?

@FiXato a group of characters, a few groups actually. There is like a set of 2 kids and 2 adults traveling around, and like a weird other place like a school with lots of kids, i think they are telepathic to varying degrees.

I seem to remember something about scientists using nuclear weapons to fix climate change, but that caused the apocalypse

@j unfortunately that doesn't quite ring a bell. A post-apocalyptic world in which some small groups travel around, makes me think of the mini-series based on #StephenKing's #TheStand, but the nail-digging telepathy and school don't quite ring a bell. Also, the apocalypse was the result of a virus that escaped from a military lab.
An excellent series, but I'd hardly call it a kid's show πŸ˜‚
Around what year(s) did you see it on TV?

@FiXato it might be a nz production maybe 6-10 episodes??

Around 2003-2006 but i am only guessing

@j if It's a #NewZealand production, it might be worth having a look at this list of article titles on Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category

Have you tried doing an image search on keywords such as "new zealand kids show" or "2000s kid series" as well? Might make it easier to recognise things than from a description? Or, if you recognise one of the actors that way in another series, you could look at their filmography.

@FiXato i have been through aus and nz lists for many different years, i will try again but unfortunately i dont think they are complete. I would love it if someone had Australia tv guide data in a database
