ITS TOO ENGLISH!!! The show it self is like the Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde story.. Half of it is really good..half of it is REALLY bad.
The story is good, James Nesbitt does a great job of playing both sides of the character... the best he can with the terrible lines he's been given.
Some plot twists and turns are excellent which keeps you on your seat and screaming at the TV "KILL EM HYDE!".. ok just me there..
The writing is TERRIBLE! there's way to many cringey lines. one of them goes like "Well honey... *flicks hair* wait till my husband gets here".. its cringey to watch
English doing American:
There are two main American chars in this..both are doing pretty pore jobs doing accents. The male American (bad with names sorry) changes from new York to Texan, to Chicago etc through the 6 episodes. The females accent is SO bad you'll be screaming for her to get off the screen! she really ruins it.
Some plot twists are so predictable and unsuprising. Also the episodes would be better in this order 4,1,2,3,5,6 As the first 3 episodes leave you a bit..empty... you dont really care that much about the characters/what happens to them.
Also while were talking about writing the very very VERY last scene is either porly directed or poorly written its more like a scene from "Goose Bumps" an old childrens show.
Over all its a GOOD show but big chucks of it are VERY bad and may put people off who are fans of American shows like LOST, Buffy,Smallville etc.. as these shows are put together professionally with good scores,writing,directing and acting. I feel the makers were trying for an American feel but with an English personality which DOESNT work...ever! anyway a 3 Star! But lets hope series 2 is written by some one who can write a script with out so many cringey lines!
P.s sorry for my grammer and spelling :( x
