Goofs

A major plot point of Series 2 is that the scientists must reinfect Abby with the virus in order to extract her blood and make a cure. They even go so far as to say they don't know how her body will react as she is the only person to ever be infected twice. A person cannot be reinfected with an identical strain to a virus their body has already fought off once, because your body has developed antibodies to it. See more »

Really Enjoying It
27 November 2008 | by alexanderforrestSee all my reviews

I never had the chance to see the original, but for the most part I'm really enjoying the acting. Both the detached one dimensional characters and the deeper ones. It's a good cross section for today's society.

I'm curious to see how the story will progress and I'm a sucker for interesting camera shots. The part where they follow the Kuwaiti guy across the city while he's in his Audi R8 is beautifully done.

And yes the Mosque scene is also brilliant. That whole opening sequence of everyone finding out they're the last ones was amazing.

Being a great fan of music, all the tunes used in this story really struck a chord with me. Brilliant music, brilliant visuals, good acting, and an intriguing story; it's everything I'm missing with the crap on American TV.
