Because, aviously…

I recently read Zoo by James Patterson, randomly picking it up off the shelf at the library, not realizing that it is now a TV show.

The premise is quite simple: The animals of the world are rising up against humans and starting to kill us off.

In the book, it starts out with a lion attack at the Los Angeles Zoo that sends Jackson Oz on a worldwide mission to prove that his long-time theory is correct, of an increase in mammal attacks on humans.
The TV show, airing in the summers on CBS, starts off with Jackson (James Wolk) as a safari guide in Botswana.

His partners in his search include Abe Kenyatta (Nonso Anozie), newspaper reporter Jamie Campbell (Kristen Connolly, House of Cards), scientist Mitch Morgan (Billy Burke, Twilight) and French Intelligence Analyst Chloe Tousignant (Nora Arnezeder, Mozart in the Jungle).

The book was really good, and even though the show changed the plot a bit it too is really good.

They both get a 8 out of 10.
