Having watched the British counterpart a few years back, I was looking forward to the SA spin on it. Well ... four episodes later and I cringe in embarrassment. The cast looks uncomfortable and ill at ease. The only shining light here is the character Kwezi (Anna in the BBC series). Jabu on the other hand is asinine where Egg was lovable. That's the problem with this remake : the characters are flawed and annoying where with the BBC production, they were lovable: warts and all.
SABC should have bought the UK package and saved themselves a lot of trouble. I fall in what I suspect is the target audience but most of my peers gave up watching after episode 1 (The Attack of the Drones).
