"A plane lands at John F. Kennedy International Airport with the lights off and doors sealed. Epidemiologist Dr. Ephraim Goodweather and his team are sent to investigate. On board they find two hundred corpses and four survivors. The situation deteriorates when the bodies begin disappearing from morgues. Goodweather and a small group of helpers find themselves battling to protect not only their own loved ones, but the entire city, from an ancient threat to humanity."

Wondering who else watched the pilot tonight. I really enjoyed it overall, the creature design is amazing and it has a nice cast. Aside from the initial cheesy dialogue and obligatory stupid actions from government officials, I thought it was really well done, excited to see where it goes!
