Storyline

This thrilling contemporary take transforms the classic Tarzan tale into a rapid-fire adventure, an intriguing mystery and, most of all, a fiery love story. Strong-willed NYPD detective Jane Porter's perfectly ordered life turns upside down when a routine case unexpectedly leads her to primal and passionate Tarzan, now loose in the urban jungles of New York City. After plucking the mysterious feral man from his wild home, Tarzan's billionaire uncle, the CEO of powerful Greystoke Industries, stops at nothing to 'civilize' Tarzan in his own image. And, inexorably attracted to Tarzan's dangerous yet profoundly innocent nature, Jane wrestles with reason and instinct, civilization and savagery, her heart and her head. Written by Anonymous

Surprisingly good!
2 November 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

The one and only reason I started watching "Tarzan" was Lusy Lawless.I just wanted to see her in something other then "Xina". I absolutely did not expect anything good from the show itself. But what a surprise. It's not half as bad as I expected. Sarah Wayne Callies is incredible. Her Jane is not a one-dimensional character and definetely not a swept- off-her feet teenager. She's a grown up woman, independent, smart and strong. I like that very much.Lucy Lawless did not disappoint also. Of course it's not her show and she doesn't have much to do. But the biggest surprise for me personally is the character of Tarzan. With every episode writers and Travis Fimmel are making me to take him more and more seriously, which I didn't think would be possible.And I like that the story of Tarzan and Jane' affection for each other is developing rather slowly - it has a grown up feeling to it. I do not expect any intellectually challenging story lines from the show like this. But so far I'm watching and enjoying it every week. My one advice to writers would be to add a bit of humor to it and not to take themselves too seriously.In any case "Tarzan" has my vote.
