I promised myself after each and every episode of last year's 13 episode mini-series - ZOO. It told the story of a world where animals have started being a threat to humans by turning against us en masse. It was totally ludicrous storytelling with all the stupidity and coincidences that go with this type of high concept. I rolled my eyes dozens of times but still I came back to the bitter end hoping for some kind of resolution. Then it happened. The very last scene of season one had our team totally surrounded by dangerous animals of all kinds. Certain death, right? Now THAT would be a good idea. Just end it with their death being the start of the end of all man on Earth. Story done.
Apparently not. Tonight begins season two which means that SOMEONE better have come up with an interesting if not entirely believable escape for our heroes who I hope survived to season two. I guess from this trailer they did. If you are interested in being tormented with some really good summer trash, then this is your show. It's like the beach read that you can't put down. It's based on a novel by James Patterson if you are interested. He is known for these kind of high concept crisis stories.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
