Advertisements The Hot Zone, based on a book of the same name. Six episodes. Airs on NatGeo channel, two eps a night, three nights in a row (May 27-29). [from wiki] The Hot Zone examines "the terrifying true story of the origins of the Ebola virus, a highly infectious, deadly virus from the central African rain forest and its first arrival on U.S. soil. In 1989, when this killer suddenly appeared in primates in a scientific lab in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., there was no known cure. A heroic U.S. Army veterinarian working with a secret military SWAT team put herself in mortal peril when she tried to head off the outbreak before it spread to the human population." I'm just getting ready to watch it, but wanted to get the thread started so we have a place to discuss.
