Storyline

Naval Destroyer Nathan James is sent on what they're told is a research mission in the Arctic. Accompanying them is scientist, Rachel Scott. After a few months in the Arctic while Scott is on the ice doing research, some men attack them. They get back to the ship and the Commander, Tom Chandler asks the doctor what's going on. She says that a deadly disease broke out a few months ago. At first, they thought it was contained but they had no cure. They felt that the cure was in the Arctic which why she's here. But she has since received word that it has now spread to most of the globe. Chandler tries to call the President but learns the President and Vice President are dead and the US government might not have long to survive. The current President tells him that the Nathan James was not in the hot zone so he and his crew are OK. But now it's up to them to safeguard Scott because she holds the key to the planet's survival. But there are those who want the cure too and they will do ... Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Goofs

There is a missing explanation on the need for the primordial strain. Like most mutations, they were random and various, resulting is possibly 1000's or even millions of different variants. By some chance (or perhaps by design) this process halted. Their only hope was to return to the original strain for a cure/vaccine and hope that it would be able to work with all of the mutations.

Underrated
7 February 2021 | by dimitrzSee all my reviews

When I started watching the series in Jan 2020 this series had a lot of negative reviews, which I thought were a bit harsh.

Granted this show is not a masterpiece and there is lot of room for improvement especially in domain of acting, but overall the Cast and Crew does an above average show.

This series is definitely catchy , entertaining , engaging and fast paced in its own rights , offcourse this may not be everyone's cup of tea but it's definitely worth a watch.

From my point of view

Season 1 and 2 were the best and ideally the show should have ended there 🙂

Season 3 and 4 are not up to the mark of season 1 and 2 ( possibly due to loss of some characters) however these two seasons are still good and watchable.

Season 5 Well jury is still out on this as I have not finished watching this season, but I definitely feel they should have ended the series after Season 4 because season 5 gives you the impression that the show is unnecessarily being dragged.
