Zoo Premiere Recap: Purr-fect Summer Treat or Total Cat-tastrophe?

30 June 2015 6:56 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

In the rundown of “Wait! What?!” questions raised by the premiere episode of CBS’ new summer thriller, Zoo, “Why are lions waging an organized war against humans?” barely cracks the Top 5.

For starters, after seeing his best friend seemingly mauled to death by a lion in the back of a van, how come handsome safari guide Jackson Oz (The Crazy OnesJames Wolk) isn’t a blubbering, wild-eyed mess, but instead apologizing for the quality of the coffee he’s serving to a pretty/traumatized Frenchwoman?

TV Review: ‘Zoo’

29 June 2015 7:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS’ idea of summer escapism has an interesting bent toward, as they put it in “Zoo,” a “possible extinction event.” So in the we-all-might-die spirit of “Extant” comes this rather frenetic new drama adapted from James Patterson’s thriller about animal attacks suddenly sprouting up across the globe. At least initially, the two far-flung storylines — one involving a safari guide/zoologist in Botswana, the other a reporter in Los Angeles — aren’t exactly hair-raising. “Zoo” might build toward something more satisfying, but based on the premiere, there’s not particularly strong incentive to take the bait.

The well-traveled James Wolk plays Jackson Oz, ensconced in Africa to escape the shadow of the crazy predictions of his late father (Ken Olin, seen in old videoclips), ranting about some kind of dire event of come. Yet Jackson starts to think dad might have been onto something when the local fauna begins behaving strangely, »

Zoo Season 1 Review

25 June 2015 10:07 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One episode was provided for viewing purposes prior to broadcast.

There’s a line of narration over the opening scene of CBS’ new thriller Zoo, based on James Patterson’s novel of the same name, that threatens to expose the show for the cheesily assembled, dumbed-down thriller its scant trailers and plot descriptions make it out to be. “What if animals all across the globe decided no more,” asks the narrator, after describing humanity’s long-standing reign at the top of the food chain. “What if they decided to fight back?” Is this show pitching me its hook in the opening scene? I thought to myself as the camera panned over various shots of wildlife and nature in a way I’m sure Luc Besson would love.

Luckily, Zoo has more up its sleeve than redundant narrative devices. The show’s basic idea – worldwide coordinated animal attacks – is simultaneously laughable and freaky, »

The Whispers Recap: Cold Shower

8 June 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

If you were to make a guess about Monday’s episode of The Whispers based on the photo accompanying this recap, you’d probably think it was a feel-good hour of television, right? You might surmise that the mystery surrounding Drill was solved with no loose ends dangling, and Minx is hugging her dad because she realized that Drill’s game was sort of weird after all… right?

So, so wrong.

Because other than Minx’s triumphant board-game victory against her friend early in the episode, there wasn’t much about Week 2 that you could put in the win column for these characters. »

The Whispers: Will You Make Friends With ABC's Imaginative Drama?

1 June 2015 7:59 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Under the Dome. Extant. Falling Skies. The Whispers. All of these shows have one thing in common: Steven Spielberg.

The acclaimed director/producer has always had a knack for science-fiction, but when it comes to the supernatural ventures he produces for the small-screen, the results have been, well, underwhelming, to put it nicely.

Parents are forced to deal with a frightening threat to their children on ABC's new drama "The Whispers," which begins Monday night on ABC.

In the series, an unknown force is encouraging children to do bad things, and the adults – particularly those in Washington D.C. -- are trying to figure out what's going on.

"It's the idea of anybody or anything getting its viewpoint across. Unpoliced access to your child, I think is terrifying," "Revenge" alum Barry Sloane, who plays Wes Lawrence in the series, told Access Hollywood.

Review: ABC's 'The Whispers' offers creepy kids and little more

1 June 2015 1:25 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As director and producer, few storytellers have utilized the wonderment and fascination (and sometimes horror) of children as points-of-entry into the wonderment and fascination of the adult world more effectively than Steven Spielberg has.  Conversely, Spielberg has also masterfully used the normalized responses of children to the abnormal as an approach to disarm world-weary grown-ups.  From Cary Guffey in "Close Encounters" to Henry Thomas and Drew Barrymore in "E.T." to Heather O'Rourke in "Poltergeist" to Christian Bale in "Empire of the Sun" to Haley Joel Osment in "A.I." to Dakota Fanning in "Taken" and "War of the Worlds," Spielberg has always know that there's something pure and primal in the reactions of children and that those reactions can be used to steer the reactions viewers of all ages. Steven Spielberg is one of the executive producers of ABC's new "the kids are not alright" drama "The Whispers," but his participation »

The Whispers Season 1 Review

1 June 2015 10:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Three episodes were provided for reviewing purposes prior to broadcast.

With Fox’s Lost-inspired summer offering Wayward Pines (off to a dizzyingly fun start), ABC is jumping into the fray with The Whispers, a new drama series based off Ray Bradbury’s short story “Zero Hour.” It focuses on a group of apparently disconnected children under the influence of an invisible entity they refer only to as “Drill.” After a few fatal accidents or two, a mysteriously downed fighter jet in Africa, and an amnesiac covered with tattoos all begin setting off blips on the FBI’s radar, an FBI child specialist Claire Bennigan (Lily Rabe) races to connect the dots of the seemingly disconnected events.

The big problem with The Whispers, especially in comparison with Wayward Pines, is where the latter uses inspiration from classic shows to build off and grow into its own product, The Whispers feels constantly »

The Whispers Review – ABC Creepy Mystery Drama Spins Wild Yarn

1 June 2015 7:25 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

ABC‘s The Whispers feels more like something that should pop up on Syfy, and while that isn’t at all a bad thing in general, it also feels like the kind of show developed around the brainstorm-session telling of its opening ten minutes.

“Here’s a creepy scenario,” someone says, and the response is to tell him to just keep going.

As is becoming all too common, the story is written largely paying attention only to the tenets that – A) if it’s really goofy, but everyone is very serious, it’s really good – B) bullet points are all you need in our era of short attention spans.

Point A is basically the simple result of people wanting to get a lot of sci-fi on the air, even when they don’t understand why people like sci-fi. They don’t get why things work, or don’t, but they know Lost was popular. »

When these strange animal attacks occur, Jackson Oz (James Wolk) is an American zoologist who sees a link between them and his late father’s controversial theories about impending threats to the human race.

‘Zoo’ on CBS Hopes to Make the Fans ‘Fear Their Schnauzers’

18 May 2015 1:53 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS’ summer thriller series “Zoo” could be something the family can watch together — well, most of the family.

“We really want the whole world to fear their schnauzers,” executive producer Scott Rosenberg said of the adaptation of James Patterson’s novel about what happens when animals turn the tables on the humans who have hunted, trapped and terrorized them for centuries.

#Zoo's @JPFringe says it's "The Birds," but with the entire animal kingdom.

— Whitney Friedlander (@loislane79) May 18, 2015

Rosenberg was speaking during the 13-episode series preview panel on May 18 at the London Hotel as part of studio CBS Television’s summer press day.

Much of the series opted for live animals on set instead instead of CGI. This took some getting used to for actors like Nonso Anozie, one of the series’ stars and also one who wouldn’t describe himself as an animal lover.

The poster for ABC’s summer thriller The Whispers is rated TV-cc — and that stands for Creepy Child.

Ok, Ok, the kid is cute enough, but it’s the eerie glowing hands — and that “Not all imaginary friends are imaginary” tagline — that’s making us a little uneasy.
