    Those "British" accents really bothered me, they seemed way over the top and put on.

    Apparently, Americans haven't caught up with the Brits and Aussies in doing foreign accents flawlessly.

    (Both actors seem to live in New Orleans...I wonder if they're married IRL?)

    I am also troubled by the fact that no one noticed that all of the lions were male - that alone would be suspicious to me.

    They noticed and commented on that in the first episode.

    The whole premise "the animals aren't afraid any more" is pretty silly. We taught them to be afraid when we only had clubs, spears, and fire. Time to "gun up" and do some retraining.

    I was glad to see that the dogs are also going homicidal. Cats always get a bad rap. ;)

    While it's silly, has this been a common plot before? That is, "all of the animals gang together against the humans". While I admit that's not completely accurate, at least the animals are grouping together according to species so far (lions & housecats).

    Basically, it seemed like it would be such an obvious plot, but I couldn't think of any specific examples.

    (Sure, there are *individual* animals, e.g. Jaws, Cujo, Anaconda, etc..)

    I think I'm hooked. It has been a long time since I've watched a network drama (this seems similiar to Lost) and enjoyed this.

    The premise reminds me somewhat of a horrible '70s movie I remember seeing when I was a teen: "Day of the Animals". In that movie, ozone layer depletion causes some sort of chemical imbalance (or something) in animals to turn against and attack people.
