The first film was stunning. The second was a joke and despite the story being better, the third was disappointing. Why, I ask, did they even consider making a TV series of such a slowly deminishing series of films? You can read my review of Paul Verhovens original masterpiece and in addition to that I can only say that the 1987 classic should be left alone. The series, as entertaining as it may be to people who don't understand Verhoven's sophisticated messages in the first film, this series ruins the initial aspects of R1. I am saddened to see that even good films are turned into money spinners after a while.
