This week, A&E broadcasted its awaited mini-series, The Andromeda Strain, featuring Benjamin Bratt, Eric McCormack (Will & Grace), Daniel Dae Kim (Lost) and Rick Schroder (24). The 2 two hour episodes aired on Monday and Tuesday night, but if you’ve missed the show, you can watch the rerun this weekend.

The Plot

Following the crash of a US satellite near a small town in Utah, a micro-organism, codenamed Andromeda, kills virtually all citizens as their blood instantly coagulates. Mysteriously, two survivors are found alive and may hold the key to a possible cure. A team of highly specialized scientists led by Dr. Jeremy Stone (Benjamin Bratt), is running against time to stop the spread, while a reporter investigates a possible government conspiracy to save a sample of Andromeda.

5 Million Viewers

The Andromeda Strain is the second most-watched A&E show ever, reaching 5 million viewers for part II. If you’ve missed this great mini-series, catch it again on Saturday night, or make sure to set your PVR from 8:00pm to 12:00am EST. The show is also available in HD.

  1. I haven't seen it, but every review that I've read of it said that it was terrible, so you can count me out of the re-watching party.

  3. You know, critics… I don't know how many times I heard that a TV show (or a movie) wasn't good, and after seeing it I thought darn critics, they're all a bunch of purist looking for the next Citizen Kane. Jericho, in my opinion, would fall into this category.

    Bottom line F_raze, you could watch the first 30 mins and you'll know for sure if it's worth watching the remaining 3.5 hours :-)

  5. The critics also gave bad reviews to Farscape, Firefly, and Star Trek. I tend to judge a show on its merits and not the critics. The 2 shows mentioned above are quite popular, but were booed by the critics. I also remember at one point that the critics gave 2 thumbs down to the original Rambo move, which is now a cult classic.

  8. I just watched it and I was impressed! Benjamin Bratt did a great job as a leading man and the supporting cast was really good too. The suspense and science were done nicely and I'd suggest this to any sci-fi fan.

  10. It was good. It definitely tapped into the high tech world. Maybe it could have been a little less predictable. The original Andromeda Strain movie was more suspense than this one. I don't know, maybe if it had been a little more scary… I think there were a few "politically correct environmental" statements inserted which we probably could have done without. All in all I give it a solid 8.

    Now I have an idea about an Ebola based story…….hmmmmmm
