This review is from: Charlie Jade - Series 1 Vol.1  [DVD] (DVD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
To state the obvious, if you don't like sci-fi, you won't like this. If you do, however, you'll find a lot to like here. The wormholes owe a lot to Star Trek DS9, and have elements of Stargate about them too. The people stranded in different universes are reminiscent of Star Trek: Voyager. But Charlie Jade also has its own unique feel. The visual elements are well-handled, with colour cues telling you which universe you're in, and there's a smoky, almost film-noir feel about the series - particularly in the dystopian alpha-verse. This, of course, adds to the tension of the thriller plotline, which is a bit predictable at times, but still keeps you wanting more. All in all, I think this is an important addition to any sci-fi fan's collection.
