Watching another TV series - this one called Zoo - which has all the now classic elements of the modern dystopian drama: sudden catastrophic disorder, a fragmented society, a rebellion of nature, a sinister corporate power. In this case, the zombies, the plagues, the aliens have been replaced by wild and domestic animals that have decided to rebel against their human masters, who, after all, have been busily destroying the planet anyway. The animals have had enough. Aided by the administration of "funny food" by some large corporation bent on self enrichment (think Monsanto), the animals develop the ability to cooperate and conspire in the overthrow of mankind. This seems to be the dominant myth of our time - disaster, dissolution, destruction and the renewal of the stone age. Interesting, weird, and kind of fun. 😅
