User Reviews

21 April 2016 | by gunmonkey-1See all my reviews

Lets start with a few things

1) The cops aren't evil faceless bad guys 2) The military isn't evil faceless bad guys 3) The virus was brought in by an Illegally immigrating Iranian

If that makes you scream racist and cut yourself, you'll be like the other 1 star reviewers on this site.

Oh, sorry, trigger warning.

For all the normal people out there, it's actually not bad. The National Guard are portrayed as soldiers trying to help in an impossible situation and the police being pushed into a situation they are not trained or prepared for (but still doing what they can).

It doesn't BLAME anyone specifically - the cops actually only take the single infected person back to the hospital for treatment when they could have incarcerated the entire family for aiding and abetting. They paint cops as humans that are just trying to do their job with the tools they have available.

It is a typical outbreak style series, but looks like it will be interesting and scratch an itch for those viral Armageddon fans. Most of the decisions are rational and the train of thought logical for 2016.

This is basically The Last Ship if they took out Michael Bay and focused on the plague.
