A young scientist searches to find out what's causing a rash of violent animal attacks.

I had never heard of the book by James Patterson and didn’t even know the show was happening until ads for the show were shown on TV.

It peaked my interest enough to give it a go but with my general understanding of the show, I believed that it would have better suited as a mini series rather than a show.

The show starts out pretty well but as the season went along, I found it harder and harder to want to watch and by the time I got to the end, certain things were making me angry.

To start, the lead guy (Jackson Oz played by James Wolk) is uninteresting and kind of a dick, it starts with a focus on the animals but after, about episode 3 or 4, it focuses more on the humans and you pretty much get an animal Big Bad of the week.

Another thing that also bugged me was the constant barrage of different conspirators popping up all over the place; you will have one group in one or two episodes, something will happen to them and you have another group, pretty much, immediately pop up.

Aside from that, the rest of the cast is entertaining to watch, awesome scenery and animal shots, some good and some bad special effects work.

It kind of ends on a cliffhanger but if it doesn’t get renewed you can either read the book to get your answers or make it up in your head.

Now after watching this, I still 100% believe this should have been a once of mini series event.

I have no intention of watching a second season or ever re-watching this.

CHAPPY THINKS he may be Hippo-critical but this show has squandered all the potential. (See what I did there! :D )
