4.0 out of 5 stars The Dark Frontiers Of Modern Science 28 Nov 2005
ReGenesis is a 13-part series from Canada that deals with the looming issues raised by the new frontiers of scientific advancements. NORBAC is a coalition of the best scientists from Mexico, the United States and Canada, working in Toronto, and charged with investigating various events and issues that have an unqualified scientific edge to them – in this first series they investigate the dark side of science, the side where humans appear to be rushing in before the side effects and outcomes can be known. Episodes deal with new viruses, cloning, diseases and bio-terrorism, amongst others.
The focus of the series is Dr David Sandstrom, played by Peter Outerbridge (Millennium Season 3), a brilliant scientist and borderline lousy human being. David is a perpetual teenager who happens to have a very complicated and important job and a teenage daughter, Lil, who features heavily in some of the early storylines. David is joined in his lab by Carlos, a Mexican doctor, Bob, a brilliant analytical scientist with Asperger’s Syndrome, and Caroline, the centre’s leader and a woman with a shady (possibly CIA) background and other recurring characters.
The series kicks off in fine style with a fatal outbreak of an Ebola-like virus that is heading to Toronto itself. Everything you need to learn about ReGenesis is in these opening episodes, as it introduces the themes that will run through the series’ main arc (although some storylines are resolved the majority of plot strands are deftly weaved together at the season’s close), the main characters who populate the show, and the distinctive style of the show.
The show is shot like a film, and opens with a doozy of a hook before zipping back 6 months to begin the series proper.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant stuff 26 July 2007
By S. Bentley VINE VOICE
Just to reiterate what everyone else is saying:

I had no idea ReGenesis existed and picked the DVD up on a whim because it was a.) cheap and b.) Canadian. (Oh and thanks to positive reviews here on Amazon) Canadians have produced at least two of my favourite TV shows, Due South and Slings and Arrows, so I had high hopes of mature, intelligent writing with strong characters and grounded storylines... and that's what we have here.

NORBAC is an alliance of Canada, Mexico and the US, a thinktank of scientists dealing with as the box of the DVD puts it Genetic Crime. So engineered viruses and cloning are some of the issues dealt with in the first series.

This could all be a bit dry, or as painfully earnest as, say, 24 (a show that clearly thinks it's more intelligent than it actually is), but the scientists are human beings not saints and the lead character particularly has some major flaws, beginning with his relationship with his daughter. However, it is often through this relationship that the issues at play are explained for those of us who aren't entirely up to speed with recombinant DNA and camelpox. There is also a sense of wry humour and all of the storylines affect people in a personal way, whether it is the victims of these crimes or members of the NORBAC team.

This is one of those shows that is likely to be sidelined as genre TV, even though what happens is always in the realm of what is possible today. It deserves a larger audience and if Playback want to put out the 2nd and 3rd series on DVD I'll happily buy them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Science for everyone! 26 Mar 2006
I'm a biochemist, and while I love science-based TV, I almost always have to watch with my suspension of disbelief cranked up to high. Not so with ReGenesis. Real, accurate science, and fascinating storylines. Of course the real genius is that they manage to make it accessible to the layman too without huge indigestible dollops of exposition. I watched the entire first season in less than two days, then made my husband (who wouldn't know a carbon atom from a cheese sandwich) watch it too. He's as hooked as I am, and immediately phoned up a friend in Canada to record the second season for us.

5.0 out of 5 stars surprisingly good 23 May 2007
By GAdams
wow! I bought this on offer with no idea what it was about, just hoping for some cheesey series so I could switch my brain of after work. this is one of the best series i've seen in a long time. I've recommended it to all my friends. The main character is very strong, flawed, yet still likeable and plot lines twist and turn throughout the whole series - there's always something to keep you on your toes. Someone else described it as a cross between 24 and CSI with bugs thrown it - I'd agree! Highly enjoyable and can't wait for the next series on DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Where is Season 2? 10 Mar 2007
An excellent intelligent series about the dangers and problems with the new science of bioengineering. Sometimes this Canadian series is just a bit close to the truth, which is one of the reasons this thought provoking series will br one of my favorite for a long time. With Season 3 starting soon in Canada, I am impatiently waiting for the release of the 2nd season on dvd. Season 1 has only been released in the UK so far, so as an avid tv show dvd buyer, I am looking foward to getting any more Season releases offered through amazon uk.

5.0 out of 5 stars Season 2 is available!! 25 Nov 2008
By 1234JMT
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Both my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this quirky and interesting biotech series. Like a grown up Eureka with a little less silliness and a little more punch and attitude! It is full of believable and edgy characters, great balance of humour and emotion with the techy stuff. My husband loved all the unusual and slightly crazy plot lines, I enjoyed the human elements: the teenage wildchild daughter's character is very engaging and brilliantly written.

Like many, I have scoured UK sites for Regenesis 2, searched supermarket DVD bins and every shop claiming to sell DVDS. No luck. However, after another post on here, someone mentioned purchasing it from other amazon sites. Sure enough, and and others do sell it! So does the forgottenstuff website. The cheapest option I have found so far is with postage to UK I paid 27.24 Euros. Much much cheaper than the German website and I am guessing forgotten too (Being American site, the postage is higher and you can get stung on import tax - from bitter experience!) Not only that, but if you use the french site, all your details (if you have saved them) from the UK amazon site is already there and you do not even need to type in your address details - just click and purchase. My french is poor but this was a piece of cake. Order to delivery time 3-4 working days apparently.
