trending 23/08/2021

Another lockdown, another season of NZ's break out hit TV series. 

In case you've somehow missed it, the daily COVID briefings have made their way to IMDb with kiwis leaving reviews for their 'favourite show', now in it's 4th season!

With over 240 reviews at the time of writing, this season would definitely be sitting in the top 10 on Netflix with a rating of 9.4/10.

"Whilst Seasons 1 & 2 took time to find its rhythm and constantly changing main characters, Season 3 is focusing on plot." wrote one reviewer.

"The cast combinations really have us guessing. Will it be Jacinda and Ashley? Jacinda and Caroline? Chris and Ashley? And then the added cameos from Grant. Kudos to the producers for keeping this fresh for viewers who were all thinking that the show really had jumped the shark and were hoping we wouldn't see other seasons emerge." writes another.

Honestly, this page is becoming one of our favourite parts of going back into lockdown, giving us a much needed laugh going through each review.

"This is the only 'must watch' in our house, and this season the plot twists have been inspired! The Wellington subplot was genius."

"Some critics of season 3 felt that the actions of the main protagonist, COVID-19, had become flat and predictable. Its replacement by the emergence of the Delta variant has seen the show return to its early heights, amplifying the tension and sensation of imminent catastrophe for which the show is noted."
