Bunch of TV updates for you today, starting with CBS's new summer sf series ZOO which, according to 'Deadline', has just added HOUSE OF CARD's Kristen Connolly and REVOLUTION's Billy Burke to the cast lead by CRAZY PEOPLE's James Wolk! Based on the bestselling novel of the same name by James Patterson, ZOO is a global thriller about a wave of violent animal attacks against humans across the planet. As the assaults become more cunning, coordinated and ferocious, a young renegade biologist, Jackson Oz (James Wolk), is thrust into the race to unlock the pandemic’s mystery before there’s no place left for people to hide. Kristen Connolly plays Jamie, a passionate young journalist intent on uncovering the story behind the mysterious animal behaviour she’s been tracking. Billy Burke plays Mitch, a straight shooting large animal veterinarian who prefers the simple company of animals to navigating the complexities of humans.

  3. I don't know if I'll see Indian Summers. It will probably anger me. Then again, maybe a more reality check... you know?

    1. The sad thing is that colonial imperialism is still strong as ever with countries being invaded and abused in different ways (or not even so different)
