excellent
8 September 2002 | by (london) – See all my reviews

fantastic series inspired even if not adapted from Wuthering Heights I was glued to the screen for the first episode and was distraught to find I had to wait a whole week for the conclusion. gripping, dramatic, emotional. the two lead characters had few scenes together, yet the connection between them was unmistakable. A review in the Newspaper was scathing, mocking the writer for claiming it was a modern day Wuthering Heights; I found this odd - the similarities are plainly obvious for anyone to see. Maybe its better to say it was beautifully inspired by the classic, which is itself woven throughout the programme. From the trailers I expected Sparkhouse to be an average run-of-the-mill story of teen lovers, but I was wrong. It is a brilliant dramatisation of TRUE love.
