Trivia

Charlie Jade's car is a Aston Martin DBS6, in production from about 1968 to about 1973. James Bond drove one in On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969). It is Right Hand Drive as that is correct for Cape Town. A good one is worth about British Pound Sterling £50 000 or US $77250. See more »

Starts slowly but builds to a strong and satisfying storyline
14 June 2009 | by Data-1001See all my reviews

First off, let me state that the first episode is rather slow going. I must admit that I was close to giving up on it until the tail end of the episode, but was glad I stuck it out. I was hooked shortly thereafter.

Very intriguing characters -- especially '01 Boxer', who, as played by the fascinating Michael Filipowich, is driven by motivations which only become clear later in the season -- along with a unique setting and intricate plots and subplots make "Charlie Jade" a standout amongst sci-fi series.

There are arcs in many of the main characters which keep the viewer wondering what will happen from episode to episode. And I appreciated the fact that certain things weren't always completely spelled out; you are left to contemplate and figure some things out for yourself.

While it seems obvious they were leaving the door open for additional seasons, there is enough of a resolution to the series that the viewer will not be left hanging and unsatisfied at the end of the first (and only) season. If you can find this on DVD or somewhere else on cable TV, I recommend it to any sci-fi fans who are willing to stick with a truly engrossing story.
