I'm god...
19 December 2014 | by (SF Bay Area) – See all my reviews

The doctor evaluating the property for status as a protected preserve brought up a point about how much Danny intervenes against nature whereby his reply is he much save life at all costs 'cause he's a vet. It proves her point about interfering with nature's laws as its always been clear that Danny et al have always done what they've liked at all costs, only in the early seasons they were really only saving lives and giving animals the chances they deserved. It's clear that as the seasons have progressed, they've acted more and more like god, creating fates instead of just maintaining the balances offset by human interference.

It's the type of self-righteous soapboxing thats all about their superiority over nature. No way would this in any way mirror the actions of the masses, both in regards to acceptance of questionable behavior but in the actions taken (or not) to ensure their survival as a whole. Yes, the lioness was in labor, appearing in court at the pivotal moment to ensure the preserve's continued existence would cost her her life, but surviving would guarantee the ability to save even more lives in the future. One for many. Difficult decision, of course, but the greater good would be served by its sacrifice. How could one not see that, unless of course one's frog ant enough to believe he or she is the final word when it comes to matters of life and death. Even for physicians it's called a "God Complex" and only a self- important vet would believe its his decision what nature intended.

Again, it's sad, the show demonstrated such great writing and moral implication in its early seasons. It used to clearly show adherence to the spirit of things, (nature, relationships, the law), it was a mutual assistance demonstration of solidarity which morphed into repeated demonstrations of self-righteousness followed by expecting everyone else to be generous and understanding towards their plight. I.e. it's wrong to break the law so I must report and have you punished for your "crime" however, I must break the law as its the only way to prevent continued discomfort, but you shouldn't punish me as I had a "good" reason. To see this show move towards its end with a conversion to a self-righteous, self- serving, chest thumping platform without any moral guidance whatsoever is just sad.
