Jo: The Catacombes (2013)
It was like watching Law & Order: Criminal Intent
Where do I start? If you are or were a fan of Law & Order: Criminal Intent (TV series) than you will like this one. Olivia d'Abo played Nicole Wallace / Elizabeth Hitchens in a number of shows between 2002-2008. Detective Robert Goren played by Vincent D'Onofrio tried to catch but never did as I recall. Well Olivia is back playing Madeleine Haynes who is the the same person as on Law & Order just has a new name. I have never seen this done on a show before but I am sure it has been before. I wonder how many viewers will have seen the law and order shows and will understand. if you have not seen any of these show the story maybe harder to follow. I sat there for I would guess 15 minutes saying to myself that I knew this actress from somewhere but could not recall where. But then it came back to me. The writing and pace of the show reminded me of Law and Order. The plot of the show was a little strange a woman killed in the The Catacombes and the plague virus being created and more also most to much should have been a two part show to be more realistic. Just to much happening so fast. But I enjoyed the show any way because of the link to Law & Order: Criminal Intent.
Good Cast on this Show
The series is growing on me. The slow start of the series to me but I stuck with it because I like Jill Hennessy but her role is very small in it. Jean Reno as Jo St-Clair is a good actor. The entire cast is rather good. Wunmi MosakuAs Angelique Alassane there is just something about her that I like. First noticed her in Vera. I think that one of the stronger cast that I have seen in recent years. The guest cast on this show was very good Nice to see that Leslie Caron is still active and looks great. I would guess that she is in her 80s Sam Waterston from law and order. First time that I have seen him outside of law in order in over a over I would guess 15 years. Show dealt with WW II and Nazi and the Jews and French resistance. this is the strongest show of the series so far to me. I still have to view the last two shows of the season but if you and only watch one I suggest it should be this one. I am hoping that there will be a season two. But only time will tell.
