Being a big sci-fi and SYFY channel fan, I really wanted this series to wow, but instead we get derivative plotlines, uneven acting performances, and twists which seemed created just to add more episodes. This show tries to do too much what with zombie, medical, police procedural, horror, action adventure, dystopian plotlines, etc. Plus, (SPOILER ALERT) the shows kills off the one character you begin to care about, who adds any humor to the proceedings in the 3rd or 4th episode! What we're left with is Billy Campbell grimacing and gnashing his teeth at every turn in this claustrophobic environment.

Solid sci-fi / horror show. Pretty well written storyline and the actors give pretty good performances as well. I agree with the comparisons that an earlier reviewer made, that this is in the vein of Alien, The Thing, and Andromeda Strain, but I didn't see that as a bad thing. As long as you don't have a dislike for Billy Cambell, who plays one of the lead characters, than you really should give this a try if you're a fan of the sci-fi / horror genre.
