Both times I've noticed this it has been on ABC. The first was a "flu vaccine" promo on a computer screen in the show "Flash Forward", I believe
it has been discussed on this site.
Tonight, I watched V. The entire story line was around flu vaccine.
At the beginning of the episode, Anna, the V leader states, "we can't cure the common cold, you'll have to stick with your flu vaccine". I found
that rather odd until the plot of the episode became known.
The entire episode ended up being about the V's putting something in the Flu Vaccine that was either going to harm us or kill us.
You might be thinking, "hey, they're just pulling story lines from recent events/fears". However, the information that I've been able to gather
so far has this show filming in August/September of this year, long before we were at a fevered pitch about unsafe/tainted flu. You don't just snap
your fingers and make a show, it has to be written, rehearsed, filmed, refilmed, and edited.
The timing with the unknown strain going around and extreme concern over the vaccine is too coincidental. How did this story line make it into the
series? This somewhat lends credence to Eco's theory IMO.
