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.
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.
