Anybody else watch The Hot Zone?

I was excited about it, as the book is an all-time favorite of mine, but what a huge letdown. I was really hoping they would keep it as factual as possible, especially after seeing how accurate Chernobyl was (besides all the limey accents of course), but they were obviously way more interested in creating ridiculous drama with lame dialogue from characters that were apparently amalgamations of actual people. Nat Geo should stick to filming lions, and lame reality shows (which is most of their content anymore).

Newbomb Turk icon NEW: The first thing I ever saw on The Learning Channel was an episode of a series called "Connections" with James Burke. It was terrific. I wish they still showed things like that. (nm)
