Those Years I Opened a Zoo is about a man who is in line to collect a large inheritance. To his surprise, he finds what he has actually inherited is a zoo! Now he must learn to care for the exotic animals with the help of some quirky characters.
It looks like a fun premise and the characters stand out. There is some mystery to the zoo and its origins as well. There may even be some fantastical elements at play.
The pacing was a bit slow and some of the jokes fell flat. It was a bit disoriented at times especially during the dream sequence. I’m still looking for that spark to get me invested.
Sometimes, it’s nice to relax with something simple and easy to follow. This show just might fill that niche. If it sounds like something you would like then give it a shot. If not, I can’t really recommend it since it hasn’t done much to stand out yet.
I plan to watch the first episode of every new show that is coming out this season. If you want to know what to watch, and what to stay away from, follow this series.
