Goofs

When Fogg and Lenoir start the balloon, it starts to rise rapidly and its yellow cabin is shown at least three meters above the ground in the shot with the whole balloon. Yet in the next shot the cabin is much lower as Passepartout boards the cabin by just pulling himself up by his arms. See more »

Marvelous experience
28 May 2004 | by (Zagreb, Croatia) – See all my reviews

I guess this is the ultimate Jules Verne adaptation. This mini-series is in every way far superior to the 1956 movie, and almost certainly will be to the upcoming one. I have to admit I haven't read the book, but somehow I believe the series to be pretty true to the story. Humor and thrills are making the fabric of an exciting adventure story throughout the world. Look for some interesting references to historical figures, like Sarah Bernhardt or Jesse James, and also for some beautiful geographical locations. A brilliant cast, headlined by pre-007 Pierce Brosnan, excellent Eric Idle and a perfect Peter Ustinov makes this one of the most enjoyable TV experiences ever.
