How Intriguing
19 June 2007 | by weemonkSee all my reviews

Why hasn't anyone commented on this programme yet?

I knew nothing at all about it going into the first episode but I will definitely be watching more.

I don't want to give anything away as to what Meadowlands is about but I would best describe it as a cross between The Prisoner and Twin Peaks.

Nice to see an English cast and UK filming. I thought Showtime were an American company? If you like your TV a bit out of the ordinary with quirky characters and an air of mystery then this is for you.

This series has huge potential. Well worth trying.
