I saw part one of this last night. What a movie so far. It's about the head of the National Weather Association (played by Brian Dennehy) who's trying to figure out a way to warn Chicago about 2 superstorms that are about to flatten the area. It starts off with Las Vegas being rocked by-of all things-a tornado followed by a major hurricane off the gulf of Mexico. In the middle of all of it is a contraversy (sp?) regarding the energy plant's method of reducing energy and of course there's a hacker hacking into the plant's computer system shutting off power to certain areas at any given time causing accidents and people being trapped in buildings. Nancy McKeon plays a local reporter trying to get to the bottom of the energy crisis and the scandal. Thomas Gibson (Dharma & Greg) plays the head of the plant who's having an affair with the Vice President of Public Relations. Dennis Quaid is comical as a storm chaser who's trying to stay on top of numerous tornados spotted all over the map.
One comical line from last night. Brian Dennehy's character is furious that there have already been 2 major storms and no one in his office caught it. So he says: "From now on, if a dog farts in Duluth, I expect one of my guys to know about it." I was when he said that. My husband was looking at me like I had 2 heads. Can't wait for the conclusion on Wednesday.
