Goofs

A major plot point of Series 2 is that the scientists must reinfect Abby with the virus in order to extract her blood and make a cure. They even go so far as to say they don't know how her body will react as she is the only person to ever be infected twice. A person cannot be reinfected with an identical strain to a virus their body has already fought off once, because your body has developed antibodies to it. See more »

Why cancel this show?
26 October 2011 | by imdb-8006See all my reviews

This series should have gone on. There's a lot about it that's high quality, great production values, terrific long shots of empty cities. The storyline was really barely touched- besides the evil island machinations, there's a whole planet empty and going primitive not just a small piece of English countryside. I particularly liked the character who's so certain she's the government, and seeing it her way is magically always best for everybody. Her patronizing line of bull remains what we hear on the news from our officials every day. I'd like to especially praise the casting in this show-- the faces really fit the character. It's easy to imagine an actor willing to play a weasel like Dexter but to look so genuinely despicable, I do wonder where they get these very unlovely guys. It's not characterization by makeup in this show, it's a casting director with a great sense of face. All in all, it's a mystery to me why this was canceled, I think the decision was a bad mistake.
