gorgeous tarzan and gorgeous locations
6 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

I really liked this Tarzan series because it attempts to use the science fiction Tarzan from the Edgar Rice Burroughs novels. Joe Lara is a fantastic Tarzan and the most gorgeous guy in the world! He seems to understand the loneliness and solitude of portraying Tarzan and that is refreshing. All the technical credits are cool including the photography, locations, design and music. I really enjoyed the episodes where Tarzan is forced to survive the elements in whatever world he has been taken to. I also loved the science fiction characters in many of the episodes which are not overdone but feel almost realistic in a fantasy world. I wish the series could lasted longer as it was a breath of fresh air in the often dry jungle of television!!
