The wait is over for Prime Video's TV take on Fallout, with the live-action drama based on Bethesda's iconic video game series ready to cue up on your screen.

Helmed by Westworld's Jonathan Nolan (brother of recent Oscar winner Christopher) and his wife Lisa Joy, the show is set 200 years after a nuclear apocalypse has wiped out much of civilization, leaving the wealthy who were able to head to bunkers as the few -- but not only -- survivors.

Among those left among the living is Lucy (Yellowjackets star Ella Purnell), an optimistic "vault dweller" who leaves the safe confines of her shelter and heads to the surface to save her father (Twin Peaks legend Kyle MacLachlan). A dangerous wasteland warped by atomic fallout awaits Lucy, with factions clashing and mutants roaming as she tries to navigate the post-nuclear chaos. 

Nicely filling the gap while we wait for season 2 of that other post-apocalyptic game adaptation, The Last of Us, Amazon is aiming for a similar hit on their hands -- but does it live up to the expectation? Find out for yourself by following our guide to watching Fallout.
