Storyline

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 mycroftmy

Looking like there's potential
16 April 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

With an upto date and very reflective view of the real world issues surrounding weather, the storyline of this series is interesting and probably closer to truth than might be immediately apparent.

Some solid cast support some largely unknowns as slightly unbelievable scientists, and I found some of the acting a little poor, however, the overall premise is extremely intriguing and I look forward to the developing of this series.

I would definitely recommend putting aside an hour of your evening on Sunday, as nothing better on at least, and I hope you are all as pleasantly surprised as I was.
