User Reviews

It's OK but...

They have Protocols ALL wrong in this. I was NBC (Nuclear Biological Chemical) in the military. First off local police would only be there to direct local traffic in a situation where an unknown biological threat is found. The CDC Homeland Security and even FBI would be there. EVERYBODY would in a military Hazmat suit so that anybody entering the situation is safe. The hospital would have to be a Level one Hospital equip with an Infectious Disease ward where anybody exposed to "patient zero" would be put into. The walls ceilings and floors in Quarantine are all white tile. There are ZERO windows in Quarantine. Nobody is allowed in and everybody who is authorized to be in the ward MUST wear a Hazmat suit at ALL times to prevent risk of exposure. Nothing is allowed in QUARANTINE. NO cell phones, or electronic device. There isn't any TV in the room. All you can do to relieve boredom and maintain any shred of sanity is to count all 2000+ tiles in the room.

I won't go into great detail about the entire list of proper protocol in such a situation. I am watching this miniseries with my hubby who wasn't NBC but Intelligence in the military and we were picking it apart on what they did wrong.

I like the show just that the writers didn't do enough research on protocols when such a situation arrives.
