This thrilling contemporary take transforms the classic Tarzan tale into a rapid-fire adventure, an intriguing mystery and, most of all, a fiery love story. Strong-willed NYPD detective Jane Porter's perfectly ordered life turns upside down when a routine case unexpectedly leads her to primal and passionate Tarzan, now loose in the urban jungles of New York City. After plucking the mysterious feral man from his wild home, Tarzan's billionaire uncle, the CEO of powerful Greystoke Industries, stops at nothing to 'civilize' Tarzan in his own image. And, inexorably attracted to Tarzan's dangerous yet profoundly innocent nature, Jane wrestles with reason and instinct, civilization and savagery, her heart and her head. Written by Anonymous

love it
26 November 2005 | by kmburgess88See all my reviews

I loved the show Tarzan. It had a very hot looking Tarzan and a cute Jane. I feel that they should try it again or make a sequel series or something. It had a great show song and beginning. I taped the show's episodes when it was airing and I still love it. This series was actually rare because no one was having sex with someone else or anything like that; It's about something. That's what made it special.I was really sad when it ended and they need to bring it back. The subject of the show could be something longer. Maybe add some new characters or different plots. I did like the character development as the story went on. They way that Tarzan looked at Jane was enough to melt any girl because he looked at her with caring and compassionate eyes. A show is supposed make you wish that you in there with the character(s). It's supposed to make you anxious for the next episode and I know that is what this show did for a lot of people who watched it when it was on. It is still one of my favorite shows.It only lasted 8 episodes, but there could still be a lot more that the writers could have done, or can still do. The characters developed over the 8 episodes and they could seriously make this show be #1 in the future!
