No book has ever been filmed absolutely true to the original, that is probably impossible. To some degree we need to accept that the makers of a movie or a series does have some artistic licence.
Still we have to draw a line between "artistic licence" and a complete rewriting of the story, which is what this series is.
Just about the only thing kept as was, is the name, the names and the original settings in Richmond, the flight in the balloon and some parts of the first episode.
Now, what is so problematic in making this vivid and extremely exciting history written by Jules Verne into something so devoid of factuality and realism like this series? I gave up on the series, before I came midways. It is simply not worth more than a 4. Ptooey!
