Fans complain about bad writers radically altering our heroes rather than inventing their own. Here, rather than mess up Jason Bourne, the writers invent new heroes in the same universe. (It looks like "Watchmen" will do the same.) I recognized Jeremy Irvine from Spielberg's "Warhorse" & Brian J. Smith from "Stargate Universe" as two of the young hotshots in the Bond/Bourne/MacGyver tradition. There is a large cast to juggle in this series, and two time periods, so expect complexity. But so far it's really good.

[There's no slot for this review, so I'm sticking it here]. H.G. Wells' "The War of the Worlds" is getting two new versions (the similarity of their titles is going to bring linkers headaches). The British 3-episode "THE WAR OF THE WORLDS" launched 13 Oct. It is set in Edwardian London and references Orson Welles' 1938 broadcast. Unfortunately, in spite of its good FX, it is getting only average reviews, with one stating: "the screenwriter and producers just couldn't resist the temptation to insert their 21st century sensibilities into a late Victorian story." Don't expect much. The other version is the international 8-episode 'WAR OF THE WORLDS", which will launch 29 Oct in Belgium and is supposed to be more like the 2005 Spielberg movie--except that humans have lost that war. Both are in English.
