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

Just as it was getting better, it was canned
3 July 2004 | by (Dallas TX USA) – See all my reviews

I thought this show had some bad and good points, but I saw a sufficient number of good points to keep on giving it a try. Specifically, Mitch Pileggi and Lucy Lawless. Brilliant actors - I wish they had had more to do.

When the show was about a family in conflict - Kathleen, Richard and John - it was strong and dynamic. I thought the show had a great look to it and obviously was made with great production values. I think some of the writing and the overt marketing to teenage girls was regrettable. Travis Fimmel I never did expect much from, and entirely too much was made of him allegedly being oh so sexy. Puhleeze. I really think the show was getting stronger when it was curtailed. I'd like to see it come out on DVD.
