ZOO (James Patterson)

Well, I was hoping for the best, but sadly, this is campy summer filler. The dialog is laughable, but it will make you go HUH, on occasion.

Some are calling it silly goofy fun. I mean you really have to take a huge leap of faith to buy into any of this.

I think the conversations may turn to bets on how long before it get cancelled.

It's pretty stupid. I can't believe this would carry on for 13 episodes.

I don't think I'll make any effort to seek this out.

I can't believe there's enough James Patterson stuff to fill a single episode of a show, let alone a 13-episode season.

I watched Zoo last night because there was nothing else on. I had seen a few TV Spots for this the last few weeks and never did I say to myself "this is something I want to watch". And yet, there I was last night...watching....THIS? This is on par with Under The Dome. Not as bad as that for sure, but still a throwaway series. I doubt it even makes it's full run before getting cancelled. But then again, I said the same about UTD and that's still on the air. Go figure.

Ascension (Netflix)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJqQ4OdPcAo

Ran across Ascension on Netflix that has a 4-/2 star rating, which in Netflix term is well liked show. Watching the first 30-40 minutes will have you trying to figure out the what, where and especially when aspect of the show. My wife was getting a little frustrated because it was not spelling things out clearly the way she likes. Itís rather complicated.

A 6 episode sci-fi drama that has a very interesting mash-up. 51 years ago, the United States secretly launched a giant space craft that will hold a 600 person community for the 100 year journey to another galaxy. The show switches back and forth between the space ship and earth. The earth is definitely present day. The ships crew has appeared to freeze in time. They have the fashion of the 1950ís. So after 2 episodes, Iím not sure at what point in time we are watching ship time. I assume present day. It can be head scratcher. One of the key scenes is the fantastic idea of pulling the camera back from the murdered victim, up  and through various rooms and structures, twisting and turning through some very contemporary compartments and structures and finally outside the enormous ship. Realizing that the political ball, the underground scamming, the ocean side swim all occur within feet of each other inside the space ship. Brilliant reveal.

The thrust of the show is a murder. A murder within a large community on a spaceship presents some interesting dilemmaís. The show also raises more complex views of politics, science and class structure.

The hour moves pretty fast. I know Iíll be following through with this. Not a big fan of the detective murder scenarioís, but there is plenty going on to make the ride fun.

I loved that pull-out with "Rocket Man" playing, I watched that three or four times in a row, I thought that was pretty cool.  And yeah, the ship stuff is taking place in the present day (they tried to say it), but they had a different development from the 60s... though honestly some of the tech seems REAL unlikely, like their iPad things.  Too advanced, even for the premise.

My main question is... are you just not spoiling the twist about the show or are you guys definitely not getting what's happening between Earth and the ship?
