Smart, funny and very modern
20 April 2000 | by (Plymouth, England) – See all my reviews

Thank goodness someone producing British TV realises that some people out here have intelligence and understand sophisticated wit. Charlie Higson is one of those people. I never saw more than three episodes of the original show, but because this series stands on its own, we can disregard it.

All of the episodes so far have been well-constructed and work with the characters to develop them (the relationship between Jeff and Jeannie is very well done) but also manage to stand as entertaining on their own with Higson's directing of 'Paranoia' probably being the best yet. The editing and effects are superb, and whilst they are necessary they never intrude of the show itself, simply complimenting the writing. As for the acting...I never really found Reeves and Mortimor funny before, but in this they are both likeable and very good at being real characters as well. The casting of Tom Baker as Wyvern was just another masterstroke and Emilia Fox brings a heart to the show with Jeannie. The guest stars are always in the spirit of the show but never dominate.

All together superb. There is intelligent life in the world of 'Dateline: Jerusalem' and 'Whatever You Want' and it's responsible for this show.
