I've read that the book ends very open-mindedly, and I think it's very possible that the show would follow the same. There's NO way a cure will somehow reach every animal on every continent overnight. I could see them doing a second season if CBS chooses. *fingers crossed!* The episodes have flown by!

I would absolutely LOVE to see more seasons. This is a great show with an awesome cast. I am keeping my *fingers crossed* also!

What I hated about the show was the preview for the season finale...looks like Det. Jane just got abducted...after saying that there was nothing left for them to take. Another lead star goes missing??? Are all the writers getting together and writing the same story lines??? Booth missing on Bones (for the SECOND time) wasn't enough??? NEW IDEAS PLEASE GUYS!

Why are you dragging Bones in here? Not everyone watches both shows.

Because I DO happen to watch both shows.

Public Morals Season 1 Episode 1 Review: A Fine Line

Great potential; great cast. Have always been a fan of Edward Burns. My husband and I both loved the quote you cited that he said to his teenage son. Sorry that Timothy Hutton's role was so short-lived.

I'm totally with you on Hutton! On the bright side, Brian Dennehy and Neal McDonough join the cast in episode 2!

@ Elizabeth Harlow

So right! Can't wait for Dennehy and McDonough to show up!

Yes, that bird scene at the park was definitely frightening. Completely horrifying to see the birds kill that mother. I was really creeped out seeing drop of blood on that bird's beak that was sitting on the handlebar of the baby stroller. Thank God the birds didn't attack the baby because I don't think I could have handled that. It is a shame that Delavenne is a bad guy, I liked him. I am happy that Audra has forgiven Mitch, and that scene with him touching her face was so sweet. It was also sweet that Clem called him Daddy. It will be interesting to see how the team gets to Africa with everyone hot on their tail. I really love Zoo, and I cannot wait for next Tuesday.

Oh my gosh... that drop of blood on the beak made me squirm!!! I thought eye stuff was bad. This was a WHOLE new thing! I love Mitch's little family. I know they're really happy with Justin, and that Mitch has said that Justin is a great guy, but it might actually be nice to see the family reunited. At first, I was all about Mitch & Jamie, thinking MAYBE there was something there, but I think was WAY off base there.

Have you noticed how they are just flirting (no pun intended) with the romances in this show. Mitch and Jaime, Jackson and Chloe. This show seems to remember that it's about the animals and not about the romances...at least not yet. I think you are probably correct about Mitch and Jaime. They're more brother and sister. Now Jackson and Chloe is another story. They were probably destined to be together from the moment Chloe misunderstood his need for her phone number in the premiere.

That is the way a show has to be done that even though there could be romances and Im not against them, they do remember the show is about the animals and not soap opera romances. The flirting is there and the possible romances too, but that is not the key element of this show. I hope the show is renewed im enjoying it and I hope the last episode gives us a cliffhanger not give closure to all what they had been reearching so far. It has to be more than just the Mother Cell and Reiden Global and the erratic animal behavior maybe next season could focus on animal experiments too, talk about that. I hope there is more to it than just that so there is more stories to sew on a possible season 2 if it is renewed. I mean we have to know more about Jackson dad since he started to do his research of animals.

I'd watch a season all about Robert Oz! I want to see his slow decline into what everyone believed was madness. I think that would be really interesting!

@ trd4197

I love romances on shows, so it's no surprise that I zero in on them immediately. But yeah, they really keep the romance light, if at all. If there's going to be any romance by the end, it's going to be Jackson & Chloe. They just keeping gently hinting at it, and moving on. I guess when animals are killing people there's bigger priorities than going on a date. :)

Christine, when Mitch was touching Audra's face, and she said that she was sorry for being so hard on him I actually kind of wanted them to kiss. I know that Audra is happily married to Justin, but somehow I would like to see Mitch and Audra reunite. It's clear that Mitch still loves her.

@ Amy Perrin

There's a lot of love there, for sure!

@ Amy Perrin

But every show doesn't have to turn into a Soap. Unless they turn everything upside down and have Abraham and Jackson become a couple.

@ Isoron

I agree! Sometimes the less romance, the more you can focus on the plot. In a show so rich & heavy with technical science dialogue, you really do need to focus solely on the animal plot. I like the small hints of romance, and I still think they'll go there in the case of Chloe & Jackson (maybe after they make this cute, and their hectic lives settle down?) but admire that it's not even a medium-size focus of the plot.

The drop of blood bit was one of the nicest pieces of "cinema" I've seen on network TV. Brilliant moment.

I'm still thinking Piper is actually Emma's sister (and last night was the first time that I suspected she knew it as well) but I'm not sure she is behind anything else. I hope its actually not Kieran at all because, um, unless he's just the killer he'd otherwise be Emma's half brother. And I'm pretty certain they've had sex.

@ kate277

They had sex so that's why i'm kinda sure he isn't the killer.MTV wouldn't dare venture in this Incest route,this ain't GoT!

After this episode,Kieran is too obvious to be the killer.Piper is behind all of this,i'm sure.

Tyrant Season 2 Episode 11 Review: Desert Storm

This show is unique entertainment and politically very interesting. We need more shows like this one instead of endless zombies or monsters. Hope very much there is season 3!

@ Scarlett666

I'm worried that it has not be renewed yet myself. And after watching the previews for next week's season finale, I could see it as a series finale as well. Keeping fingers crossed for a third season.

This episode was very hard to watch. It brought forth raw emotions. Dominic and Natalie showed maturity by putting aside all their resentments, and coming through for April in her time of need. We will have to wait and see how Dominic plays it from here. Will miss Leo's presence. He was a strong character. When a show is as realistic as this one is, happy endings are not a given. We will continue to follow April's journey with her, and care, no matter the outcome.

The Strain Season 2 Episode 7 Review: The Born

Yes, "badass" is the word I've had in mind since seeing this episode! I really did think that Stephen McHattie's character in S1 was Quinlan, and was disappointed: a) that the character I thought of as Quinlan was someone else;
b) that Stephen McHattie, whose ironic delivery is really pretty special, was no longer playing this character; and
c) that they killed off the vamp commandos. But the real Quinlan is so. bloody. cool. I sense echos of Blade - part monster, part human, badass (there's that word again) good guy. What a (somewhat vampiric) mensch. The season is gathering steam and I'm still hooked. I am so hoping that they get to finish the full 5 seasons they have in mind; I'm not sure how I'd handle the PTSD of having this one canceled prematurely. I'm still recovering from losing Brimstone in 1999, not to mention Firefly, and for that matter, In The Flesh.

Zoo Season 1 Episode 9 Review: Murmuration

Zoo is that rare show that keeps you guessing on who is who and what is what. I said last week that I thought that Delavenne was not a bad guy and that Brannigan would be from this point on. Well, so much for my detective skills on this show. Delavenne is clearly bad and Brannigan is an up and up agent. Again however, it's refreshing that our protagonists are all very competent and not maddeningly stupid.
The show is definitely ratcheting up the action. I think we all felt the baby was safe, but how disturbing was that drop of blood on the birds beak when it was looking in at the baby.

Teenie113
@ trd4197

It's true! I was positive that Delavane wasn't a bad guy, and that Brannigan was. And how quickly Delavane turned on them! Any chance you think he'll pull a switcheroo, like Mitch?

Avatar
@ Christine Laskodi

I hadn't thought of that. If he does though, then he'll almost certainly fall into the old "thought he was good but he's really bad but he does good at the end to redeem himself" scenario. Now I would normally say he's a dead man as a result of that but if I've learned anything from Zoo, it's that they at least try not to follow the "old" anything!

Teenie113
@ trd4197

I just feel like Delavane will have a change of heart, and end up helping them again. It seems almost too shocking that he'd end up being a bad guy!

@ Christine Laskodi

The thing is, none of the bad guys have had any experiences with seeing the animals when they are attacking so they do not believe what the good guys are saying.
