Not nearly as bad as some would have you believe
Is the premise of Zoo over-the-top? Yes! Of course. It's supposed to be. Around the world, animals are attacking humans. Judging the story within the premise, it holds together. In fact, there are some amazing production values here and some genuine opportunities for thrills and chills. The animal action is nothing short of amazing. Diane from London suggests (James Patterson hired unimaginative and untalented hacks to write Zoo. pays are unimaginative and untalented. "Ridiculous plot, bad writing, absurd action, and silly all around," she says. "Not one character in this trash behaves as if they were remotely familiar with Africa, animals, or common sense." I disagree. Again, within the context of the story, most of the action is plausible and the characters likable and believable. Frankly, her analysis says more about her than about the show. Such venom and hatred directed at Patterson suggests to me a sad, bitter person with a personal ax to grind. Just as with any program, be it the X-Files or NCIS or Games of Thrones must be judged within the context of its own framework. Zoo is not an Alex Cross thriller. That doesn't make it trash; it simply makes it a different kind of story.
