Trivia

Charlie Jade's car is a Aston Martin DBS6, in production from about 1968 to about 1973. James Bond drove one in On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969). It is Right Hand Drive as that is correct for Cape Town. A good one is worth about British Pound Sterling £50 000 or US $77250. See more »

Great characters and the unique South African location make this a sci-fi series that breaks the mold
15 June 2006 | by (Pacific NW, USA) – See all my reviews

In the vein of John Doe and The 4400, Charlie Jade is an intelligent character driven sci-fi series shot in and around Cape Town, South Arfica. The unique location of South Africa gives the show a refreshingly different atmosphere compared to the standard fare of Hollywood back lot sets that we see in the vast majority of television shows being broadcast today.

The concept of parallel universes is by no means a new idea, even a little worn, but the excellent acting and contrasting character studies give the concept new life and I for one, have quickly developed an attachment to this series.

I hope the show is able to find a USA venue as that would help to insure a second season but so far the show is only seen on SPACE and a smattering of small countries including South Africa, Korea, France, Japan, Italy, and Romania. I believe it is seen on Space in both Canada and the UK.

If you like sci-fi and have access to this series I think you will find Charlie Jade an intelligent, fulfilling, and entertaining experience.

Will
