    This is a new Russian show on Netflix. Its a zombie-less viral outbreak. For the most part you follow 2 families who are making a 1000 mile trek to get to a very remote spot on a lake while the chaos from the virus unfolds. It doesn't take itself too seriously in some episodes, so you can't go into it nitpicking the details too much. There is illogic. And there are a couple of pretty annoying characters, such as a 9 year old who keeps causing trouble by either throwing tantrums or not doing as he's told. There's also a side story about a socially awkward doctor who doesn't know how to drive. He and his uncle are also making their way along the roads trying to find a particular hospital. There's also a smaller side story about a group of what appear to be alcoholics and misfits, led by another doctor, who try taking a stand against the gov't. Not a great show by any means, but season one helped me kill about 8 hours over the past weeknights. It's at least worth a try. The first half of episode one deals almost exclusively with pre-virus character development, so get through that and it speeds up a bit. Zombie-less, as I said, but at times the sick people start to act erratic and aggressive in the later stages of their illness.

    This kind of sounds like the movie The Crazies from 2010.


    The truth is out there

    A little, but there is very little focus on the sick people. Just one or two scenes here or there. The focus is mostly on dealing with other healthy survivors, including the military, which seems to have gone rogue to a degree.

    Looks like it's worth checking out. Could use a fresh distraction from all the other insanity going on.

    I enjoyed it - it's a tad formulaic, but the novelty of seeing familiar scenarios play out with a Russian flavour more than makes up for that.
