I still haven't come across Charlie Jade; not sure if it even made its way to our shores yet.Just two or three worlds always leads to stories of greed. Take Charlie Jade where one universe decided to steal the water from another!!
Let's give it a chance. The first season of Fringe was pretty good so hopefully the writers can carry the momentum forward.We can just imagine the storylines that are coming up now:
The team having to work to break up kidnap schemes holding the alternate worlds people as body parts for rich people in their own world.
Doubles for political and militaristic group leaders assumed dead in explosions, etc being brought out to stir up action.
Use of the second person to provide alibi in criminal offences. Being witnessed/recorded in public whilst the other is committing a crime.
Use of same for VIP's under threat of assassination where the person in the other world never reached the heights and 'needs' the money offered.....
Compared to Dollhouse... I can't say, I just couldn't get into Dollhouse. :oJust put the first season on my rental queue. Haven't seen any of the episodes yet. How does it compare to Dollhouse?
Give it a chance, it does get better. About half-way through the first season Abrams brought in some outside writers to give the story arcs a once-over and the biggest hurdle, of Olivia having Charlies memories, falls to the wayside a bit letting the story lines branch off into other directions.I've watched about seven episodes so far and overall I think I like it. Reminds me of X-Files a bit but flashier. I have mixed feelings about the actress in the lead role and I'm finding most of the episodes to be a little disgusting or disturbing. I really like the premise but I haven't found any of the stories to be particularly engaging but my friend says it gets better so I will stick with it.
