Rotten Tomatoes score: 50%

Synopsis: Taking place in 2006, two years after the events in the video game “Resident Evil 4,” “Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness” follows Leon Kennedy (Nick Apostolides) as he investigates a security breach in the White House, which is under siege by zombies.

Meanwhile, Claire Redfield (Stephanie Panisello) learns of a T-virus outbreak in Penamstan, a fictional country recovering from civil war. 

Leon and Claire team up to uncover criminal plots among the White House staff and ultimately, work to stop the T-virus from spreading across the planet.  

“It’s not a crucial part of the ongoing storyline, since the games are doing a totally different thing now, and it’s not going to establish any useful context for the future of the movies,” wrote The A.V. Club’s Sam Barsanti, who gave the show a C+ grade. “But freeing itself from those expectations has resulted in a TV show that, while far from a masterpiece, exceeds most expectations of a video game adaptation.”
