Jekyll (BBC mini-series)
« on: June 02, 2009, 04:24:56 am »
Best thing I've seen on TV, IMO.

If you haven't seen it, I'd recommend it to anyone. Brilliant plot, practically every line was a plot twist, interesting and at times funny dialogue, believable characters, great atmosphere, action that's not only exciting but also fairly original, suspense and mystery all over the place etc. It's a kind of sequel to the original Jekyll and Hyde story set in modern times.

Anyone else seen it? I searched and didn't find any threads on it.

Ahhh


It is good to know someones has seen this series besides me, I seen it about a year ago on BBCA


James Nesbitt is brilliant in this series, he is the one I thought would have been a great replacement for Davis Tennant in Dr Who


I agree with you 100 % on this one

  I take it that this is, atm, a european t.v. broadcast?  Too bad, I do so enjoy a good remake of a classic.

  I would assume you need sat or digital cable to get this channel?  If so, I'll have to wait for the DVD package.

That is correct, I have BBCA cause I have a lot of the premium channels through Dish Network

BBC America seems to be more carried on satelite rather than Cable outlets.

Now that you mentioned it I do not know anyone using cable that has BBCA


Looks like pretty soon everyone will have to have the digital converter boxes
