To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
After viewing the first season my expectations may have been too high for the second. In any case it is still great entertainment although it is sadly more one dimensional as it narrowly focused on an outbreak of smallpox (which is based on an historical event) and its containment. The five episodes seemed to go by too fast, but hey the characters are still great. I'm ready for Season 3 now and hope it will deal with more diverse topics.
