Two more TV Series I hope you know about

Two shows Haki and I recently watched together on Netflix:

"In this thriller based on James Patterson's best-selling novel of the same name, actor James Wolk portrays Jackson Oz, a renegade American zoologist overseeing safaris in Africa. As he begins to notice animals exhibiting strange behavior, attacks against humans start occurring all over the world. The ferocious assaults accelerate and appear to be cunning -- and coordinated. Jackson races to solve the mystery behind the pandemic and stop it before no place is left for humans to hide. A team of executive producers includes James Patterson."
This is a goody. Such a fun cast and strong script.  It starts very A-grade (first three episodes are very strong).  It's topical.  Series 2 just popped up as available this morning. The storyline briefly wanes for two episodes (it's not awful, just not as good), but it returns to form.  A second season is coming soon.
Terra Nova
"Centers on the Shannons, an ordinary family from 2149 when the planet is dying who are transported back 85 million years to prehistoric Earth where they join Terra Nova, a colony of humans with a second chance to build a civilization."
This is fun.  It's not A or B grade, probably more accurately B+ grade with a few (very few) B-grade moments.  We really enjoyed it and would watch another season, if Netflix decides to buy it.  Love that it focuses on a family instead of two teenagers in insta-love / star-crossed / falling in love during disaster.  It's also pretty clean (language and sensuality, most notably).

The last two TV series I talked about here.
