The title of this series does not give away much in regards to the show, but the show definitely carries a heavier punch than it may seem on the outlook. If you are a science fiction freak, then you will definitely eat this up and be asking for more at the end of it all. The show’s strength lies in its believable and well conceptualised story line that seems to grow in leaps and bounds with every passing second you are glued to your screen.

The production follows a team of scientists from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCP) who are called upon to use their expertise to curb an outbreak of a deadly disease that has the potential to wipe out mankind in a private research facility based in the arctic. However, the company that is running the research seems more interested in protecting their secrets than containing the outbreak.

The avid series watcher may be thinking cliché [creche in regards to some of our politicians] and that has been done before but the way the storyline builds up is simply genius with several twists and turns that will leave you wanting for more. This production is surely worth checking out. Plus the series has already been renewed for a second season so one can feel free to build attachments.
