Dire, 5 January 2010
Author: patmaloney from Ireland

I can understand the writers & the BBC not wanting to just do a spiffier version of the original BBC series.

But the 2009 iteration was dire.

There's no point blaming the cast, as with the script provided you could have had a cast of Oscar winners & you'd have had the same disjointed, incoherent result.

Someone must have just taken a set of 'modern' topics & told the writers to shoehorn as many of them in as possible.

There were plenty of gaps in the book that could have expanded on to change the narrative to one more relevant to the new century ( Post Coldwar ) without reducing the original classic book to People Versus Plants, & other People.

As it was I just about sat thru the first installment & could only deal with the first 10 minutes of the 2nd episode.

Programming by committee strikes again !
