    I found many of the characters fascinating, brilliant and dedicated scientists. I would have scored it higher if it didn't resort to extreme stereotypes when it comes to pro versus "anti- vaccines. It is a much more nuanced discussion and it would have done well to ready it as such. There was a legislator in Oregon who made the statement " autism is genetic" which is true in the way any disease carries a genetic element. Every politician- MD is not an autism expert and it is misleading. The series is at its best profiling researchers and their passion

    CCP propaganda trash from an almost unknown Chinese Canadian director... Look up CHYNA Virus statistics within the USA in April vs the "projections" from the "experts". Fear mongering and mind control at its best. Stop believing Bill Gates and the globalists who want to sell out America. The kung flu can kiss my American ass. The wall is goin up!

    Will people NOW pay attention to what the scientific experts have been saying and warning about? Step by step we're headed exactly where they predicted, we're just in phase one, get ready for what's next.

    Timely, fact based, smart, fast paced, and absolutely terrifyingly accurate.
  • Mar 22, 2020
    Oh so timely to have come across this documentary! Interesting, informative, and scary all at the same time!
  • Mar 13, 2020
    COVID-19 just made this amazing documentary a whole lot more relevant. Moving and inspirational.
  • Mar 09, 2020
    Excellent and timely.

    It's relevancy cannot be surpassed. Very good explanatory power for those who may not be so informed.

    This series of 6 episodes provides a reasonably deep review of various people dealing with issues related to potential or actual epidemics of influenza in specific locations across the globe. The topic overall is relevant because of recent and previous epidemics. There's also irony in viewing the current evolving fight against measles vaccines and outbreaks of measles when it was thought eradicated, vs the pursuit of an influenza vaccine to 'eradicate' the flu. Others are rural vs urban, 3rd world vs 1st world, surveillance & response vs prevention. Besides dealing with influenza from a scientific research or medical response view, there is some insight into the local culture and the personal lives of the characters followed, their religious affiliation, their lifestyle, their coping, their pursuit of funding. As well as a global view. FYI, in the 'chapters' focused on American locations, you may notice a bias against the Trump administration in several moments in probably each episode. The production implies a balanced approach, but that bias is clearly there. Perhaps it exists for the other locations. Viewed with a grain of salt to acknowledge bias in its perspective. The series is worth watching but I only offer 3.5 stars. I would have preferred it acknowledged all sides or more sides of an issue for more thoroughness. I would also have preferred some sort of overall perspective to set up all of the stories, why they were selected, etc.

    I liked it very much. Once I saw a Ted talk from Bill Gates talking about how un-prepared we as human civilisation are to fight epidemic outbreaks like this. At first I thought that his statement was a bit exaggerated. Considering the new corona virus in China. And the lots of info I got from this series, I can say that my point of view has changed 180 degrees. The series is also an exquisite piece of storytelling, at the same time it keeps you sitting and looking to the screen, it also injects you with a mega ton of information on what is going on around the world and how insignificant our lives could become in the face of a new, not yet discovered, virus. Watch it!
