Rather enjoyable super hero weirdness that feels somewhere between traditional super hero stuff and Legion tv series. Like Lexx it gets me watching the characters and oddness and the often ropey effects seem part of the charm.
Seems just about okay. Story is about immigration and gangs, apparently being in gangs is okay if you're an immigrant because you have it tough. It looks like a poor immigrant has blown somebody's head up with a hand grenade - I'm going to guess it's not so. There's a rich white swede unvolvwd with helping the illegal immigrants, so it'll be him. Illegal immigration is fine, police are facists or okay. Everyone except the lead is English, Young wallander is played by a Swede. Definitely a show with a heavy handed message.
It's really good and i would heartily recommend it. It has its own style in the writing and camerawork that i really enjoyed. Lots of great characters and surprising moments. Excellent acting from Kurtwood Smith, in particular. It ends just well enough that a third series it obviously deserves isn't too badly missed. It doesn't end on a very specific cliffhanger, though you get the feeling things were broadly set up. I think it's criminally overlooked. I overlooked it myself for a few years.
It has lots of nice music in it, mostly songs, and i think needledropped score as opposed to composed.
The first (pilot) episode. It must be 20 years since I've watched it & I really enjoyed it. The DVD looks great, but the first season is 4x3. Let's see if I can go through the whole series, maybe two episodes a night.
