Anyone see this last night and had you seen the original Belgian version?
What did you think?
Personally whoever decided to do a remake needs their head examined particularly after seeing the result shown las night.
For me it just did not work.
I felt the same way with Channel 4'd recent remake of the Swedish Before We Die which after one episode decided it was not for me.
The ITV version is a poor facsimile of the Belgian original, which was absolutely brilliant. The first episode started badly but got a little better as the episode unfolded. Not 100% convinced, but I’ll try one more episode.
I had these on in the background and that's all it's worth.
I like Miller but it's hardly a stretch here, playing the usual socially inept sharp tongued defective genius of sorts.
You know where it's all going and the criminals pretty much just sit there, don't bother with legal representation and all but say, Fair cop guv.
Try the Belgian version first on All4. The UK re-work is not a patch on the original series, all three of them. I’m only really watching to see how it compares to the original. Based on the first UK episode, it’s devoid of any of the qualities that made the Belgian version a must see.
