It is an Australian comedy about a woman who discovers that a several of her past lovers have died – in unrelated and unexpected ways – and looks for a pattern.
I have to say that I enjoyed it sufficiently to watch all 10 episodes. However, my misgivings were largely justified.
Big spoilers for both film and series follow.
For me, a great fan of both the original series, and the star of the remake, Kevin Spacey, it was going to be must-see TV. However, I did have some trepidation about it, a feeling of “please don’t let them screw it up”.
