62. Mad Max EarthAll the surface water of this Earth has dried up. Civilization now consists of "tribes" fighting over water, supplies, or anything else of value.
One tribe lives in what has become known as the Lost City of Aquarius--a hidden village of abundant water and lush vegetation. Some members of this tribe have the ability to locate underground water, a very handy (and sought after) technique.
- During the filming of this episode, Ken Steadman was killed and Christopher Maleki was injured when their dune buggy flipped over. After a one week delay in filming, the episode was completed with a stand in for Ken Steadman's character.
So if you were wondering why Cutter looks so different in the last ten minutes of this episode, now you know.
