I loved this show, but this DVD set is a real disappointment.
Some of us DO enjoy non-silly programming and prefer shows of substance. Can we start a petition to bring it back?
Like the somewhat similar British series Jekyll the most interesting aspect of the series is the conflict between two apparently separate people inhabiting the same body. Edward, the Bond-like spy, is ruthless, and Henry, the family man, has never handled a gun. They do not seem to care much for each other but as they only have one body they find they must work together to stay alive. Everything was fine until Henry, previously unaware of Edward, discovers Edward's existance in the first episode. That they now switch back and forth at any moment is the tale.
The last episode appeared to be working its way to a conclusion, but in the final two minutes they throw a curve. The show is good, worth watching on its own, but it would be nice to see a second season.
I spose I'd be much happier if I could get into something less challenging, like Jerry Springer or those "reality" shows maybe.
But I just don't seem to have the right sensibilty.
Too bad, cuz in some ways it's a curse, really.
Hey, maybe if I offered my head up to be kicked by a horse.
Episodes are currently (as of April 2012) available on Hulu in the US but if you are looking for something to watch on the go (an overseas business trip) or want to introduce a friend to a fun little series as a gift (and then discuss potential outcomes of the unrequited cliffhanger ending) pick it up and give it a go.
Trivia: It may be also interesting to watch a young(er?) Taylor Lautner (aka "Jacob from Twilight") pop up now and then as Henry's son.
