I watched season 1 because the shows were available online for so long. Episode 2 of season 2 prompted me to write a review since there are many reviews saying this is a great show. LMAO!! Grate? Yes. Great? Absolutely NOT! The scripts / plots are just plain awful if you are a logical person with common sense.
Do believe all of the negative reviews. The supposedly smart characters frequently do the dumbest things. And they managed to increase the stupidity in Season 2 so maybe the writers should be applauded for doing something I didn't think was possible. The writers are lazy, budget conscious, or stupid. Maybe all three.
In case the high ratings aren't from people associated with the show, let me give you some advice for real life. Do not do anything you see in Zoo. Don't go into the woods or a cave with nothing but your thoughts for protection. Don't study a large, strong, unpredictable creature in an open room with basic restraints. If you're running from a charging elephant, do NOT stop for any reason. If others stop running, keep going, and use the time the to get away instead of watching and grimacing as the inevitable happens. If in doubt, think what would they do on Zoo and do the opposite.
