Not What It Colud Have Been,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bonekickers [DVD] (DVD)
Ive nothing against programmes playing around with historical facts for entertainments sake,and this series is most definately guilty of that,but when it does this and fails to be that entertaining,you sadly cant forgive it.An interesting idea,and a talented cast are wasted on a series of storys that become more and more far fetched,and hard to believe.Also its overwhelming desire to be politically correct in the extreme,becomes more and more annoying and hard to swollow,as do some of the decidedly iffy effects.
The series is a missed oppertunity,which is a real shame,because it could have been really good.Even Adrian Lester,so brilliant in Hustle,fails to make any kind of impact.It does have its moments,but sadly no where near enough of them,the result is that it fades from the memory as quickly as it did from the TV schedules.
