4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth watching 28 Mar 2008
Verified Purchase
This is well worth investing in; decent acting, some good storylines & a mixture of fun & excitement along the way. The charachters are fairly close to what was established in the films & I have to say I enjoyed watching pretty much every episode. I believe Season 2 was something of a disappointment though & the show got canned thereafter. No sign of Season 2 on DVD either.


Season 2 is available from Amazon in Canada!

Well I bought this from Amazon as HMV and Virgin wanted around 45-50. Was not expecting the action and excitement of the original Murder by Illusion but curiousity got the better of me.

The acting is just about bareable but the action and the humor/violence is pretty good, a bit cheesy in places and the best acting is by Carrie Anne Moss from Matrix. I have only seen the first episode but it was gripping and fun with loads of action and stunts. Really horrible and appaling opening credits, looking forward to watching the other 19 episodes.

3.0 out of 5 stars From okay to good to worse 5 Feb 2008
It's an okay series with af few good episodes and the rest is just okay. The humor and the action - speciel effects - does save it a lot. And Carrie Ann Moss is the best acter in the show. They should have thougt at bit more about the plots.

1.0 out of 5 stars How Could They Waste Such Talent? 9 Jun 2011
By OkiDoki
I only have one positive thing to say about this show and that is that it introduced me to the phenomenally talented Richard (or Ric as he likes to be called) Waugh.

My initial reason for giving F/X: The Series a look was because I had enjoyed the films. What a disappointment this show was. Mediocre writing, characters who had not translated well onto the small screen, and lots of scenes shot in bad lighting. I was just about to give up watching the pilot when Captain Marvin Van Duran (Ric Waugh) appeared on screen. I thought he was extremely handsome, so I continued viewing, hoping to see a lot more of him. Well, by the time the feature length pilot had finished, you could count on one hand the number of minutes you saw him. I just knew I had witnessed an incredibly talented actor being seriously wasted. Now, this could have been forgiven had they started to utilize his talents more often as the series progressed, but they seemed to forget about him in almost every single episode. Not just from the first season, but the second one too. They treated him terribly in other words.

I started to collect more of Ric's work, and was simply in awe of this amazing actor. The way in which he brings so much life to his characters, and his unique ability to delve into their psyches, guaranteed his status as my favourite actor. After a few years of watching Ric on the TV, I made the decision to go and see him live on stage in Canada. I wrote to him over Christmas (2010), and received a wonderful reply (along with a gorgeous signed photo) a few weeks later. He said he would be doing a show in March (2011), so I booked my flights (from Edinburgh to Winnipeg), and bought a number of tickets to see the show (Burnin' Love).
