Audience Reviews for The Hot Zone: Season 1

  • Dec 09, 2021
    It was everything I wanted to see in a miniseries about a real outbreak of a serious infectious disease in the USA and those who do and don't do the job of controlling it for our safety.
  • Jun 19, 2021
    It is promissing at first, but then it boils into a melodrama where a basically good cast is forced to overact only to play out too many aspects that don't have much to do with the actual plot, other than to create melodramatic interactions that prolong the series. There should be enough human depression as it is in the basis for the plot, and even though it obviously also is to underline human relations leading to humane misconception, it becomes exaggerated to a degree that reminds more of a soap opera than a historical thriller. The result is stressful and poor direction, something not even brilliant actors like Liam Cunningham, Julianna Margulies and Noah Emmerich can save, The sequences from Africa work better, as the drama there displays in a more natural fashion, Why Tropher Grace in any case was chosen for this series is a mystery. He might have another style of acting to his repertoire, but the character he uses here has long since been wasted in the 70's Show. And where did they find that silly wig? The total is entertaining enough, and even factually interesting to a degree, but as a total a good potential is spoiled, Regardless. the general message about the dangers of virus epidemics is clear, but the timing with The Hot Spot was perhaps too good, or this essense of the series has been outshined by Covid 19. However, the message would be a much stronger manifest with a well made documentary, and not yet another drama based on real events, where it's more essential to create conflicts and eventualities in the screenplay than to recollect history.

    The hot zone es una buena serie.
  • Aug 06, 2019
    well-done film which may serve as a wake-up call

    More shows like this please. Strong overall narrative and exposure to the silent pathogen that lurks in the darkness. Might lack in the quality but it is a hard hitting drama with solid actors.

    Great performances, well casted. Not too heavy handed direction. Kind of wish we would have seen more of an outbreak, plot stayed extremely realistic.
  • Jul 02, 2019
    Really enjoyed The Hot Zone. Good cast.
  • Jul 01, 2019
    I like it. Sure it ain't perfect, but definitely entertaining.
  • Jun 23, 2019
    I was expecting 16 episodes of people dying blood and stuff that I don't see on TV much!! I kind of had my hopes up too high. First couple episodes were great last few were not so good. :(
