Zoo season 1

Based on the book, this series is the next thing me and Noshi are going through on Netflix.

A rtaher original concept, this might be a nice change from most other series as we picked it up by an accidental trailer on television.


Violent animal attacks upon humans are occurring all over the world. Jackson Oz, an American zoologist and his Kenyan friend, Abraham, a safari guide, as well as a Los Angeles reporter, a quirky veterinary pathologist, and a French intelligence agent all seek to investigate the mysterious pandemic as the attacks become more coordinated and ferocious.  Because the animal kingdom has seemingly said "no more" to humanity locking them up, domesticating them or hunting thm for sports.
At first, it are small localised events, but soon they start expanding to ever bigger incidents (the bats on the polar station... that was brutal).  The assembled team starts discovering links to a company called Reiden Global, and how their "mother cell" might be at the basis of it all, and the key to finding a cure...

What I liked about it

* The fact the "enemy" is sheer nigh uncontainable
* The pre-finale episode which really makes it look grim for humanity

What I didn't like about it

* The side characters have a live expectancy of seemingly 1.5 episodes, making it hard to either like, dislike or even believable.
* The time jump in the finale, as not much is shown how and what events transpired duringthat episode

It was an amusing series, and though it had it's flaws, I'll definitly be looking at season 2 as well with intrest.
