Storyline

It's 1930s London and Robert Jekyll is a naive, sensitive young man finding his place in the world and moving away from the protection of his loving foster parents. As he begins to feel himself coming under the power of a darkness he cannot control, he realizes that all this time his parents were protecting him from his true self. Jekyll has inherited the curse of his grandfather, and when angered or in danger he undertakes a graphic and twisted transformation to become Hyde, a shadowy, brooding figure of incredible strength and agility; confident and fearless. As he tries to discover his past and search for a cure, Robert Jekyll is drawn deep into Hyde's world of monstrous creatures and freaks of nature.

Great Show. Lots of mystery and characters
15 December 2015 | by magnumrexSee all my reviews

This is a really fun and interesting show. It has an Indiana Jones feel with lots of interesting characters, secret societies and other monsters. It's over the top sometimes with decent special effects.Although when Jekyll turns into Hyde he does it mostly by acting. It feels like they are trying to set up a world so I hope it gets a second season. Instead of a standalone monster Hyde is part of a lineage of monsters.

I find the point that people complained about the violence laughable as it is no where near as violent as say Walking Dead and it's mostly just fighting and cartoon violence. It's why I checked it out and I was surprised with a better, more interesting show. Maybe British people have a different idea of violence. Give it a look.
