Haven't these kids heard of closing a goddamn door?
Incase you didn't already know, Netflix have just released a new TV series for us to binge watch called The Rain and it's making everyone pressed.
The post-apocalyptic thriller follows two Danish siblings, Simone and Rasmus, who have spent six years in hiding in a bunker after a terrible virus carried by "the rain" wiped out almost all the humans in Scandinavia.
In the first episode, young Simone and Rasmus are told by their father to stay in the bunker with their mother until he comes back for them. However, when Simone hears someone at the door and assumes it's her father, she lets him in. Their mother, knowing anyone outside will infect their family, runs outside the bunker and tackles the stranger before he can enter, exposing herself to the virus and dying, leaving Simone and Rasmus alone.
Watch the trailer below:
The show is getting great reviews from fans and critics alike, with a healthy 87% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes (at the time of writing) but there's one thing that's getting everyone riled up.
Scan Twitter and there's one question on everyone's lips: WHY DID THE KIDS OPEN THE GODDAMN DOOR?!

Here's the tea.
Girl, it's the apocalypse, your mom & dad just told you to not open the bunker, then you go and open the door & start to talk with strangers on a walkie talkie??? 😒 You're cancelled. #TheRain— Sand Vibes (@GrumpyDaria) May 7, 2018
Not to sound like a Daily Mail reader but should we blame the kids or is it the parents fault?
I’m watching #TheRain on Netflix and the first 15 minutes has pissed me OFF. Why are people so damn stupid??????— nicolas flamel (@toky0_martian) May 10, 2018
Honestly, I haven't seen Twitter so pressed since Jeff was killed off in 13RW.
I understand that in a show, the characters have a different POV than the audience. They may be unaware of the danger, like in The Walking Dead...u don't just bash someone in the head bc they act strange HOWEVER these kids WERE TOLD IT WAS DANGEROUS #TheRain— CBS_Soaps (@cbs_soaps) May 9, 2018
The rain of hate just won't let up on these children (sorry).

People are even making SpongeBob memes about it.
Ok, we'll stop now.
I've changed my mind. Let's have one more.
Is anyone else like REALLY peed off with the kids in #TheRain 😡😡😡 why you gonna open the door? Eeediots— Jamie Saunders (@jasaunders90) May 6, 2018
Ok we're done now.
Now we like shouting at the telly just like everyone else but, guys, they are children! Ya'll need to calm down. Children do stupid stuff all the time, including opening the door to a bunker and exposing mothers to deadly viruses. That's just a fact of life and you're going to have to deal with it to enjoy this show. Sorry about it.
And when you're done frothing at the mouth at The Rain, then you should probably check out Safe - which is out today (May 10). It follows a father called Tom whose wife has died and he's bringing up his two daughters. It all hits the fan when his eldest daughter disappears in mysterious circumstances and he realises that in fact he knows nothing about the people closest to him. Judging from the trailer, shit get reals pretty quickly. Check that out below.
