Trivia

The aerial shot of the CIA headquarters is stock footage from The Bourne Identity (2002). The establishing shot of the CIA headquarters entrance gate is from Spy Game (2001), and is in fact a location in England, not the real CIA headquarters. See more »

[assassin hesitates, then throws grenade]
Derek Jennings: Grenade! Get the grenade!
Derek Jennings: [as assassin flees] Drop the grenade! Drop the grenade!

Too Many Cooks
11 September 2004 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

Just before THE GRID was broadcast I came to this page and found out that THE GRID was a BBC / American co-production and had first been screened on US television . This utterly surprised me since all the trailers seemed to make a big thing about the British cast ( Most notably Bernard Hill who not only appeared in every trailer for this but every single trailer for the Olympic games too ) but upon watching the first episode it becomes very obvious the amount of American involvement in this drama . This might not have been a bad thing since American television has brought us some great dramas in the last few years ( Am I the only Brit who loved OZ ? ) but THE GRID isn't one of them

Despite having only one director and two credited writers THE GRID feels it was produced by a commitee numbering several hundred people and this shows through on screen

Will it appeal to Tom Clancy junkies ? - Check

Are there bedhopping scenes to appeal to SEX AND THE CITY fans ? - Check

Are there both good and bad Muslim characters to show that not all Muslims are terrorists . We don't want allegations of racism with this show - Check

This is a drama /thriller that is trying to appeal to the entire TV audience on both sides of the Atlantic and this is where the mini series fails . Maren Jackson might be a hot American babe while Emily Tuthill will appeal to those viewers who like frosty English ice maidens but are their sex lives that important to the plot ? ( A plot which I thought was overstretched ) Mind you when you've got dialogue like

" Come to spoil the tea party ? "

" I've no intention of spoiling your tea party . I drink my tea in Long Island - Ice cold "

I guess you might expect a bit of sex since it sounds like it came out of a blue movie

So THE GRID fails down to the fact there seems to be too many cooks pouring some iced tea
