Storyline

It's 1930s London and Robert Jekyll is a naive, sensitive young man finding his place in the world and moving away from the protection of his loving foster parents. As he begins to feel himself coming under the power of a darkness he cannot control, he realizes that all this time his parents were protecting him from his true self. Jekyll has inherited the curse of his grandfather, and when angered or in danger he undertakes a graphic and twisted transformation to become Hyde, a shadowy, brooding figure of incredible strength and agility; confident and fearless. As he tries to discover his past and search for a cure, Robert Jekyll is drawn deep into Hyde's world of monstrous creatures and freaks of nature.

I wanted to like it, I really did….
11 March 2016 | by Janine-The-BarefootSee all my reviews

The production values are fantastic. The sets are gorgeous, the costumes spot-on the "Art-Deco"/"Steam Punk (like)" feel of the show all seem well thought out and acted upon. But 6-7 episodes in I still only knew the names of 3 characters: Ravi (the brother), Bella (the bar owner) and Jekyll/Hyde. I refer to the Richard E Grant character as "the richard e grant character" and the secretary of Jekyll's attorney as "Miss Lemon". Seriously! What that says to me is they've done a good job with the world building but haven't really given me characters that I actually CARE about… beyond Bella and Ravi. So given that Bella and Ravi are secondary characters to Jekyll & Hyde I'm pretty sure that's not what they were going for and I don't think it says much about getting me engaged in the story.

I don't have a problem suspending my disbelief. I find the various "monsters" intriguing and interesting but I just don't care enough about any of it to know virtually any of the characters NAMES!… Oh yeah, the "girlfriend scientist"… you get the picture. I know who is involved, I just don't CARE. So the sets, costumes, camera work and so forth, end up on the "cutting room floor" of my mind along with everything else the show is trying to accomplish.

I wanted to like this show. I really did. I love the genre. I just can't get behind all of the characters and I'm not sure that's the fault of the actors involved. The dialog doesn't engage me. The "action sequences" kinda leave me unimpressed and NOT wanting more. I engage for the scenes between Bella and Hyde but that's about it and that, in and of itself, is not enough to make me want to come back for more.

I can see why others may like it and even be excited about it. But for me, I just end up wishing they'd kill them all already and just get it over with. So I won't be coming back. Production values notwithstanding. There just isn't enough humanity in what is supposed to be a STUDY ON HUMANITY for me to give it more than 6-7 hours.

FYI- I only posted because the other reviews are largely supportive and encouraging and of course if those people like it they should say so! But it seems to me that the "other side" deserved just a little representation and hopefully enough anecdotal evidence to support my position. Naturally, everyone should decide for themselves and these boards are for the purpose of expressing those decisions and giving the uninitiated viewer some information on which to base their own decisions.
