Better than expected !!!
22 July 2010 | by ohibalaSee all my reviews

"Mysterious Island" is a very good,attracting and well-acted TV series..Talking about Characters:the character of 'Captain Nemo' is amazingly thrilling and also (Alan Scarfe)'Captain Harding' is a spectacular actor and his character is the the type that I admire. The atmosphere of the series was extremely wonderful,real and make you feel that you are with them on the island. The last episodes are full of suspense,totally full of depth and I really enjoyed them. The only bad thing about this series is that there are nearly 3 or 4 episodes which are not good and do not represent any importance in the flow of events. It is a very good series and I recommend it.
