CONTAINMENT - An interesting premise, good show, will continue to watch
26 April 2016 | by DelphineCormierSee all my reviews

Great show, and great direction I have seen a lot of shows over my life. Some bad, some good. This one I'd give about 8. The show is very well done with the storyline of the virus outbreak and containing everyone, and it really gets you thinking of how people would really react in a situation like that. Badly. Loved ones separated during the quarantine, ones being isolated in rooms and going crazy, I don't want to spoil anything but the way the virus outbreak affects people in this series is the way it'd affect people in real life. Only con is that they are introducing too many characters to follow at the beginning, instead of focusing on one or two so they can begin to grow on us. Instead of 8 per 5 minutes, give us 3 per 5 minutes, but that's not too big of an issue. Love the show. Ironically enough, I'm watching this show while I have a cold bug, and am on bed rest, so this is pretty relatable at the moment haha. Will continue to watch!
