This Tarzan series may be considered as one part Edgar Rice Burroughs adoration, one part Robin of Sherwood pseudo-mysticism, and one part Joe Lara fulfilling his dream. Filmed in the Sun City South Africa resort with almost religious fidelity (where possible) to the Burroughs' books and elaborate use of special effects, this should have been an utterly excellent series. But something was just slightly out of whack. Was it Lara? Was it the effects? Was it let down by the quality of the acting? A genuine Tarzan despite the sci-fi flavour that should have worked and did to a point, but not enough to attract financial backing for a longer series. Sad.
