Containment – Season 1 Episode 13

Containment

“Path to Paradise” THE LAST EPISODE WE made it. We finally made it! There was a time I wasn’t sure there would ever be an end, with it seemingly dragging on for a bit, despite it’s relatively short 13 episode span, but here we are. Journeys, relationships; we’ve all had them. But none more than…

Containment – Season 1 Episode 12

Containment

“Yes Is the Only Living Thing” Ok. Episode 12. One remaining. Not entirely sure where to start with this episode- Jake is still reeling from the passing of Katie and we see Jake face her corpse to prepare her for cremation in quite a touching scene. With Cannerts accused of creating the virus, he’s being…

Containment – Season 1 Episode 11

Containment

“Nothing Gold Can Stay” Day 17. Thrusting us back into the political side of things we see Lex and Leo outraged at Lommers blaming everything on Dr. Cannerts. We finally see Lommers’ husband who looks like a dick. The writers have been clever introducing him so late in the series, and are quick to hint…

Containment – Season 1 Episode 10

Containment

“A Time to Be Born…” Oh my god, what the hell. A time to be born indeed. This episode Teresa fiiinally goes into labour. Separated from Xander, who is still under quarantine, she must rely on Jana & co. to help her. Jumping to Katie who is also in quarantine, we see her come to…

Containment – Season 1 Episode 9

Containment

“A Kingdom Divided Against Itself” Hello? Is anyone there? It’s interesting to see how missing an episode of a TV show can throw you out a loop so much as missing a single episode of Containment. What happened that Lex is no longer imprisoned? Did that go anywhere or was that a quick shock factor,…

With the hooligans down stairs terrorizing the folk upstairs, Jana needs to fortify the area they’ve been calling home. First of all, they need to stop…

Containment – Season 1 Episode 6

Containment

“He Stilled the Rising Tumult” What happens this week that we’ve not seen before? Well, this week I decided to have some fun and made a special Containment bingo card and it did not let me down! Having said that we’re missing Shirtless Jake / Sentimental Moment Between Bert & Lovely Wheelchair Wife / Stern Lommers…

Containment – Season 1 Episode 5

Containment

“Like a Sheep Among Wolves” Food. How many of us have half opened packets of pasta and rice stuffed in the cupboards? And a freezer full of things we might eat one day. Apparently no-one in Atlanta, despite what Hoarders Next Door and Extreme Couponing will have me believe about America. After one week the…

Containment – Season 1 Episode 4

Containment

“With Silence and Tears” First things first, apologies in the lateness of this review. If you must know, I had two men in my bathroom all day when I was supposed to be writing this up. That was only marginally more frustrating than this episode. Day 6. Wee catch-up: Exposing the weak point in the…

Containment – Season 1 Episode 3

Containment

“Be Angry At The Sun” Another episode, another quote. This episode we start at the Center for Disease Control, where Lommers is questioned by the press over the extreme containment measures and political agendas. Reporter Leo Green, introduced  last episode, getting more screen time with his fear mongering ‘exposure’ videos makes for an interesting new…
