Julie Lynn Mortensen,
A group of mountain climbers disappears while climbing the Himalayas in the 1950s. In the present, another group takes the same route and also disappears. A shady rich man hires a professional mountaineer and some scientists to find them.
I am a huge Coupland fan, and loved the book. I find that often movie or TV adaptations ruin the books, however, in this case, even though the show isn't "true to the book", I find it very amusing. It is easy to watch, the characters are fun and diverse..Alan Thicke is an absolute gem. When I watch it, I don't think..."you can totally tell this show is Canadian"... I am sure you all know what I mean by that. I think its a show that Canadians can be really proud to call their own. Way to go Douglas Coupland and cast and crew of Jpod. I look forward to next weeks adventure . Perhaps next we can see Girlfriend In a Coma on the screen!
