Horrific (and not in a good way)
21 April 2016 | by michaelrthomsonSee all my reviews

There are certainly no shortage of these 'virus gone mad' type of TV shows and/films.

I've just been watching the pilot episode and have to say it was a first and last for me. The contagion seems very cliché, bleeding from the eyes and transmitted via fluids - all very typical pathogenic stuff.

What is not typical is the awful script writing and acting. To call this a B grade TV show would be insulting to some very good B grade shows out there. The acting is wooden and uninspired, whilst speaking about it there is about as emotion or response shown by cast members as there would be if they were suddenly to be told the sun is yellow or the sky is blue.

There is the ubiquitous eye candy man in a tight t-shirt, the dysfunctional relationships, and the possible single mum hooking up with the guy in the tight t-shirt. Dull, trite and boring are the best words that come to mind to describe this trash.

How it is that TV networks/content makers can continually create these badly written, filmed and acted shows and yet cancel some shows that truly were worth continuing to watch.

Its 43 minutes of my life I'd like back invested in this 'pilot' - don't make the same mistake I did, spend the 43 minutes somewhere else for your own sake.
