"The Rx for Survival series is a great collection of documentary stories on the current (and future) challenges to our world health. This edition, specifically marketed as "Bird Flu", reused too much of the previously aired material and tried to adapt it to a pandemic influenza scenario. In the end, this movie left me with the feeling that the makers were trying to capitalize on current pandemic fears, while minimizing the amount of new material required by reusing old `Rx for Survival' footage. The story was less focused and the non-pandemic influenza materials made the writer's lessons harder to find in the clutter."
