It's about a group of Meerkats in the Kahalari (SP?) desert and their adventures. The head Meerkat is a female called Flower and a lot of the members of the group are her offspring. It was one of the surprise hits of the summer and it has just started it's second season.
I think they're leaving at "presumed dead" but still missing. So sad! We love that show, it just cracks me up to watch Jack on his back legs trying to see the TV! I gotta get a picture of Jack imitating a Meerkat!
