1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing, 1 July 2011
This review is from: Shadows - The Complete Second Series [DVD] (DVD)
I got the DVD of the first series and loved it. Unfortunately series 2 isn't a patch on the first.

It seems as if the scripts were written in a real hurry. Three episodes have pretty much the same storyline (blur between fantasy and reality), two episodes don't make sense, and one has potential but fails to capitalise. Only one has the atmosphere of the first series.

There's also a dizzying new title sequence replacing the somber original. With its images of urban decay and a lonely little girl, it underlines the change in emphasis in s2: less supernatural, more about self-esteem for kids. It really feels like a different programme altogether.

As a lover of 70s TV drama this was a real disappointment. I hope series 3 is better. Really sad to give this a low rating because Network deserve thanks for the work they do, rescuing these shows from the archives.
