Definitely Worth Watching
15 November 2016 | by SeanSee all my reviews

So, there's a lot of negativity on here about this show, which is what led me to create and IMDb account and create this review.

My advice? Ignore that negativity, unless, of course, you're a scientist learning how to fight an outbreak by watching a TV show, or if you're a cop... trying to learn how to fight an outbreak by watching a TV show.

This show is entertaining, with some good performances by various actors/actresses, and is compelling in more than one respect. Is it spot-on science, logical policing, and top- notch writing? No. But it never attempts to be, and my opinion is that most of the negative reviews of this show are the result of unrealistic and ill-founded expectations.

To put it plainly: I watched this because I LOVED 'Outbreak,' with Dustin Hoffman, Morgan Freeman, Rene Russo, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Kevin Spacey, and Donald Sutherland (amongst others). If you haven't seen it, go watch it. And, before or after you do so, watch this, too. Enjoy it for what it is, and I assure you that you'll be entertained; scrutinize every little detail and section of dialogue, then it surely won't satisfy some need for utter and unadulterated non-fiction.

Something tells me the people that didn't like this show are the same sorts of people that criticized Star Wars for having unrealistic explosions in space. Although I'm obviously not comparing this to Star Wars, some people really just need to get over themselves and learn how to enjoy a good story, regardless of whether it would actually happen this way in the real world.
