Well bummer, I don't do SD anymore so the recording for this failed. Doesn't look like it is available online on their website or through iTunes. Guess they don't want me to watch. :)

I watched it last night. Not bad as good escapist stuff goes. But the SD was not very enjoyable. That said, the SD was better with this show than it was with True Justice on the same channel.

I wasn't impressed. Bad writing, bad dialog, bad directing, and of course the crappy SD feed didn't help.
Dishing it up since 4-4-1997

Soon to be on Dish network, explained by a BBC spokesman

Good summary. I made it about 2/3 of the way through and canceled the series.

I always give a show like this a couple of episodes as sometimes pilots can be a bit weak. And this one was a bit weak.:sure:
