I wish more of these movies were actually filmed in Minnesota. Not Chicago pretending to be Minnesota.

"(When Minnesotans make a mass migration to Wisconsin, you know the End Times have arrived.)" That's funny.

There is a local published comic book author that is claiming the movie studio stole his published idea and made a movie out of it. In fact, his comic is based out of Minnesota as well. I smell lawsuit!!!

Hopefully this won't make people go use even more anti-bacterial soaps, which just breed super-bugs and makes them sicker in the long run.

I hope for Joe Mauer's sake, the Twins don't let him see this movie.

It would be interesting to know how likely such a scenario is. Pandemics do happen. Climate change could increase the probability of a pandemic by making the susceptibility of hosts (or transmission between hosts) easier for dangerous bugs. Designer bugs created by governments or corporation may have unexpected capabilities. Scary sh it! I'm not an expert, but my pea brain says a pandemic with human losses measured in the millions is not an if but a when. Hope I'm wrong.

"It's telling that this very contemporary medical thriller features three capable women, and no men, on the dangerous front lines" .... Why is it telling?
