A well made attempt at showing us the Tarzan from the Edgar Rice Burroughs novels.
26 January 2002 | by television23See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this series and wish it would have lasted longer on television. Joe Lara is a terrific Tarzan as he was in the television movie, Tarzan in Manhattan. It was nice to see a Tarzan series actually filmed in Africa instead of on a studio back lot. The series attempted to show us the Tarzan from the books that was a time traveler and existed in a science fiction world. I loved the photography and the music as well. I hope this series will return to television
