In this season, in the 3rd episode, Dominic also travels to Brazil (Manaus) and had a mission: to find the titan beetle, the largest beetle on Earth and very difficult to find due to its short lifetime. For the result of his expeditions in the jungle you’ll have to watch and find out!
“That’s it! All the tears and joy and glitter and fighting over the remote and sllllow action replays can be put on ice for another four years until we meet again in Russia. But what happened in the last two weeks of the World Cup?!”
Dominic Monaghan: Halftime at the World Cup
Anyone wondering about the interest in this sport need look no further than the reaction of the countries graduating out of the group stage. This is nowhere even close to WINNING the World Cup, it only means you are one of the best 16 teams in a 32-team tournament. Yet grown men weep, ladies kiss flags, young children get scared by the noise. It is a massive achievement and shows Just. How. Hard. It is to WIN the cup. This is a world battle! And congratulations to all who made it to the halfway mark.

Tomorrow the first game in the 2014 World Cup will start off the competitions!! Dom has always been passionate about football, and is very knowledgeable about it too. So the smart people at PasteMagazine have given him the opportunity to regularly write some features, here is their interview, and Dom’s first entry:
Dominic Monaghan: Why I Support Man United
Jackson: So will you be watching the World Cup on the set of 100 Code?
Monaghan: It’s my favorite sporting competition of all time. I used to take time off, take that month off when it happened, just to enjoy the football, but I’ll be working in Sweden. We already have the office set up with a TV, so that when we’re doing studio work we can run backward and forward and watch the game.

Why England Won’t Win the World Cup
We are England. We invented the sport. We came up with the rules. We named it soccer. We call it football. In 1966, we won the World Cup. There was a time when we were masters of the sport, when men like Alf Ramsey and Stanley Matthews were innovators and trailblazers. We established formations, tactics and built glorious stadiums. Most are still standing.
But we had made a fatal error: The game was too simple to play. Too easy to fall in love with. Too good. And so it became the “world’s game”. And the chance of us winning a World Cup again slipped further away.

And here is a sneak peek video of episode 6 in Australia, the first country to have 2 episodes in the series. In his first underwater mission ever, Dominic heads to Australia’s legendary Great Barrier Reef to track down perhaps the most venomous creature in the ocean, the deadly box jellyfish.
With the OLN announcement of their Canadian season 2 premiere on 25th March we now have some more details on the episodes in the next season as well as a short preview video!
In the second season of this popular series, actor Dominic Monaghan (Lord of the Rings, Lost) explores some of the most remote corners of far-flung countries across the globe – Brazil, Zambia, Thailand, Japan, New Zealand and Australia, just to name a few – as he searches for the largest, weirdest and most intense creatures alive. A true nature lover, Monaghan’s knowledge and love for insects and reptiles developed during his childhood and remains to this day. In this second season of Wild Things, Dom expands his quests to include bigger and badder creatures – giant spitting cobras, charging elephants, a creature with the longest fangs in the world and another that just might be the most venomous animal in the ocean are just a few of the creatures on Dom’s roster this time around.
