Goofs

On a map shown in the opening credits, the capital of China is identified as "Beijing". This spelling is in the Pin-Yin system of representing Chinese with Roman letters, which was not adopted until 1979. The Wade-Giles Romanization spelling of "Peking" would still have been in use. Wade-Giles was developed in 1859. See more »

A thoroughly enjoyable mini-series.
24 August 2003 | by (Ellicott City, Maryland) – See all my reviews

In my opinion this mini-series is far superior to the much praised 1956 movie starring David Niven. Pierce Brosnan is excellent as the unflappable Phileas Fogg, and Eric Idle is superb as Passepartout. The action moves from one cliff-hanger to the next, much in the fashion of a old-time Saturday matinee serial, and the story is always entertaining. The developing love interest between Fogg and the princess (Julia Nickson) is also handled well.
