An early "Lost" attempt...
26 May 2009 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

One of my favorite TV series about one of my favorite books. The faith to Jules Verne's book is, of course, non-existent, however, this TV show is another view or a "rewrite", which is quite interesting. The mysteries are persistent and there are times you would think "Lost" used "Mysterious Island" as an inspiration. My personal favorite is Captain Nemo, who is approached in a completely different way, making him such a mysterious character, which satisfies the term of "homo universalis": the man that has the knowledge about almost everything concerning technology and sciences, even psychology. I totally recommend it
