Yep, quite a bit of field work to collect samples of soil/water/other fluids/solids and biological samples from animals and humans that were all sent back to Toronto for analysis. A lot of it was also detective work to find patient zero or the origin/source of a particular bacterium.
I've just recently finished up the netflix series Orange is the new Black. A real bullseye that one. It's funny, dramatic, scary and melancholic. It's not the most realistic series about prisoners, it doesn't matter, the characters are great and the suspence kills when necessary. I'm really looking forward to the second season.
