Its a story that has been reimagined countless times. There are some clear political messages in here (not really hidden) that weren't in the original work, but I don't think it hurt the story. I think this is an amazing piece. I don't want something that is just like the original - copies are boring - I want something that catches the spirit of the original and I think they did a splendid job of doing that. Ms. Fix is an added character that actually makes sense and David Tennant - one of the most talented actors alive - does an excellent job of portraying Phileas Fogg.
I have yet to understand why the entertainment business always feel the need to “update” the literary classics when they try to dramatize them. It's been a few years since I last read the Jules Vern classic, but I seem to remember that Fix was the name of the Scotland Yard Detective that was hunting Fogg because he thought he was a bank robber, not a woman journalist traveling companion. What I can't seem to remember is a black Passepartout. Nor was it all this political commentary that this "version" have in each and every episode. I also believe that the fellow Fogg wagered the 20k with was named Stuart, not Bellamy. To be honest, there's almost nothing in this series that Mr. Verne actually wrote, apart from a few names. Then.. Why not change the names of the characters and call it something else?!!!? ...because this is certainly NOT Jules Verne's Around the World in Eighty Days.
A brilliant adaptation of the classic with some twists that in my opinion do not harm the history. I would go as far as it improves it, but again that is just my opinion. It is for me the best adaptation I've seen of Jules Verne's book. The characters are well cast, so if you like adventure, drama and a little comedy don't miss this show.
[NRK] An entertaining adaptation, with inclusive updates that don't bother, but rather open up the possibilities of the story from another perspective, like turning Inspector Fix into a journalist who is part of the journey. The three protagonists work very well, David Tennant is an endearing Phileas Fogg and Passepartout is played for the first time by a French actor (in the best-known versions he was played by Cantinflas and Jackie Chan), adding the racial element as a novelty. But above all it manages to maintain the spirit of great adventure of the original novel.
I actually really really loved this adaptation and I do not entirely understand the backlash. It's not necessary a negative thing taking a classic story that's been told countless of times in countless adaptations and changing some of its bits in order to create a new, in my opinion equally (if not more) interesting one, instead of retelling the same old one for the millionth time. Abigail's character was a very spot on addition and fit the story perfectly. The historical aspect of it all which was not very present in the book made the story way more captivating for me. And of course, David Tennant is extraordinary in everything he does and this role was made for him, even if he was a slightly different Fogg than the always calm, always self-collected one we saw in the book. Speaking of Fogg, the Estella storyline was also a great addition for him, one that I personally much prefered compared to Aouda's in the book.
Not at all what I expected, but really amazing to watch.
I enjoyed it. In contrast to some other series the changes from the book worked really well. It’s not often that these kind of political correctness works without damaging the spirit. Hopefully they will make a second season ([spoiler]from the ending it might be 20.000 leagues under the sea[/spoiler]).
:heart:x7 There are only a few literary classics that are usually worth an updated version. This is one of them (in my opinion). As long as there is something new about the story, some new angle, it's generally worth a watch. This one is worth a watch. Miss Fix is a fun welcome addition to the crew and David Tennant adds more layers to Phileas. It also looks like they will be back for a 2nd season while possibly tackling 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. How I rate: 1-3 :heart: = seriously! don't waste your time 4-6 :heart: = you may or may not enjoy this 7-8 :heart: = I expect you will like this too 9-10 :heart: = movies and TV shows I really love!
i used to be obsessed with the book. played some dumb game and now i love the tv adaptation. this is the first time i've been stoked about capturing childhood nostalgia.
Pretty good,but not fantastic. Lots of inconsistencies throughout.. > How did they manage to have their exploits printed in the paper so soon? We they using a fax machine? > New clothes just about every day, but no suitcases..hmmm They've signed up for a second season apparently - what'll they do- go around in 75 days? Not convinced I'd watch another season of this 7/10
Isn’t it great when your favorite TV show has characters from all over the world? A lovely Spanish or a funny Indian accent can always make a show interesting but cultural presentation is what brings awe to the viewers life. I am presenting you with the three best TV shows that will add colors to your to-watch list!
While we celebrated the Pride month just now, why not talk about some awesome TV shows focused on LGBT characters. What if you want to learn about the people at large but you realize that there is no diversity in your close social circles. That’s when a good TV series can enlighten you with the ideas and realities. It can also save you from awkward moments in the real life by providing the right insights.
Lately, I’ve been re-watching a lot of tv shows I used to watch growing up. Even though it makes perfect sense, I was really surprised how different was my point of view now, than it was ten or fifteen years ago. Suddenly, my favorite characters aren’t the favorites anymore. Besides, I’ve forgotten tons of what was happening, that’s why I had so much fun re-watching everything. I highly suggest you do the same thing!
Ich bin Sophie und das ist meine Website.
Ein bisschen über mich 👋 Ich bin ein Marketing-Student in Paris. Ich liebe es, Nachmittage mit Freunden in einem Café oder Park zu verbringen.
Aber mehr als alles andere liebe ich es, an regnerischen Sonntagen oder an jedem sonnigen Tag Serien auf meinem Computer zu sehen (.. binging…) 🙈
Ich muss inzwischen Hunderte von Shows gesehen haben, von Romantik bis zu Science-Fiction-Serien. Oft gehe ich gerne zu einer Show zurück, die mir Spaß gemacht hat. Aber ich habe keine Lust, es mir noch einmal anzuschauen ...
Ich habe diese Website erstellt, damit ich und andere die besten Folgen unserer Lieblingssendungen finden können. Bis heute habe ich ungefähr 1.000 Shows auf der Website mit Stimmen und Bewertungen von Fans.
Hoffentlich können Sie sich mir von Ihrem Sofa aus anschließen und einen schönen Fernseher genießen!
