Exploring the art of storytelling.

First Blood, Last Watch (SPOILERS)


I watched “First Blood” on my computer, but as soon as it started, I knew it had to be viewed on a bigger screen.  It was filled with sweeping views of the African savannah.  The visuals were of cinematic quality, and my little computer screen didn’t do it justice.

The acting in “First Blood” was poor.  Jackson Oz had just seen his best friend get mauled by a lion, and he didn’t seem phased at all.  The dialogue between Jamie Campbell and Mitch Morgan was laced with sentences about sexual tension, but I didn’t see any chemistry between them.  Overall, the acting was disappointing.

“Zoo” wants to be a thriller, but in “First Blood,” there wasn’t enough at stake.  The lions were scary, but the escaped house cats were a little absurd.  Seeing all the cats in the tree actually made me laugh.  I know this is a TV show and isn’t real, so I have nothing to fear.

Sorry, “Zoo,” but I won’t be watching any more of you.
