On paper, this honestly didn't interest me. Never been a fan of the contagion genre, and Suvari holds little to no attraction for me as a protagonist.

But here's the thing…Shaun Cassidy.
I'm tired of creatively exciting and unique shows being cancelled before ever really getting a chance. And Cassidy's been at the helm of a bunch…Roar!, American Gothic, Invasion and The Agency.

So I watched it. And true to form, Cassidy has laid down some very fresh tread marks over the genre, and left me with a lot of questions I WANT to see answered. I'd absolutely be watching more episodes right now if they were available. Is it an amazing show? Not yet. But history has taught me to have faith in this particular creator, and I do.

SPOT ON ... Great Job. I work as a Clinical Psychologist and it is always refreshing to see a psychological thriller that can take a true psychological phenomenon such as this and make it a little larger than life without losing the elements that keep it real and engaging. I LOVED it and I am so looking forward to seeing the entire season. GREAT WORK!

A gripping pilot with a great cast that elegantly expresses the unease many of us feel about how social media is taking over our lives (and the lives of our kids). I hope this goes to series -- it's really good.

Loved it. It kept me on the edge of my seat. Can't wait to see what happens next. Mena is a great actress. She has proven herself over and over again. She can be funny, silly , classy and professional. Love her work. She'll continue to go places. As much as we are on social media I can see something like this happening so you better watch and see what's coming next.

This is one of the cases where the pilot is simply not enough to tell how good or bad a TV show is going to be. There was drama and mystery to the whole situation, but the acting here was definitely not at the same level as "Hand of God". The score stood out at times in a not-so-good away, as it drew attention to itself by being a bit annoying at times. The stories and the dramas of the families involved has promise of serious story-telling. On the other hand, I have a hard time with the suspension of disbelief thing on how this thing is spreading. Despite the drama of it all, there were some semi-memorable moments, for example, the good doctor talking about the pitfalls of empathy and kicking out the annoying and pestering parent. There was also a "Chicago Cops" meta joke, and a guy who's name sounded like Write-a-Check. The opening track is titled "Homeostatis" by Nostalghia from their album Chrysalis. Note: the video starts with a Geico commercial even if you are a Prime member.

Another hit from triple threat Shaun Cassidy, writer, producer, director. The musical score is excellent and the casting perfect. The title and subject matter are page one items. Need to pay attention to all the characters so one has everything in place for episode two which is definitely worth waiting for and watching.
