Superstorm is a three-part British docudrama miniseries written and directed by Julian Simpson, about a group of scientists that try to divert and weaken hurricanes using cloud seeding. Superstorm originally aired on BBC One for a period of three weeks, totaling three 59 minute episodes, from April 15th, 2007 to April 29th, 2007. Each episode was followed by a half-hour documentary on BBC Two on extreme weather monitoring and forecasting, called The Science of Superstorms. The series was also aired (after being edited for content) on the Discovery Channel in the U.S. and Canada during the summer of 2007. Superstorm is a co-production of BBC Worldwide, Discovery Channel and ProSieben, in association with M6 and NHK. Ailsa Orr and Michael Mosley, who made also Supervolcano, are the executive producers for BBC, while Jack E. Smith is the executive producer for Discovery Channel. Written by
I'm NOT gonna ruin this for you (it'll do that all on it's own). No, I'm commenting on the fact that I recorded it on my DVR, because it was on the Science Channel, and I thought it was either a 'what if' show, or a show about a hypothetical massive storm hitting somewhere in the U.S.
Within...oh...30 seconds, something seemed...'off.' So, I Googled the names of some of the 'scientists' because they didn't 'seem' to be REAL scientists. I was a little shocked to find out SUPERSTORM was NEITHER of what I thought it'd be, but rather a schlocky straight to the discount bin 'movie' MADE in a pseudo-doc style.
In summary, since I've been told to 'tone down' my review and what I wanted to say - I'll leave it by just saying this flick - from what I saw, is terrible.
