FYI, if you don't want to know anything about the episodes until you have seen them, then you might want to skip over this post.
I've only watched the first two. I think its pretty funny that they are using the same titles for each episode that they used in the original series, but the shows don't even compare. Like the second episode called Harmony
which in the original series was a western, while this version was more about the sea?
I guess the connection between the two are drugs being used for mind control, but it seems in the new version its way more covert and sinister then in the original. Anyone notice how everything seems to be stuck in the 1960s? The clothing, cars, etc. Those taxi's are late 1950s Renaults, the only reason I know that is because my cousin had one back in the late 60s.
Another thing I noticed, ITV are doing these shows, same company that did the original. Also, the white ball in the original series was called rover
, so I guess that applies to this version unless they call it something else in the other episodes. So far I have to say the weakest part about the show is the music, feels to me like they just randomly dropped music in without much consideration.
