I thought I was getting this DVD to review from Warner Brothers but I never received it and I can’t complain because they send me so many cool DVD’s to review anyways. So I can’t write a review but I can tell you it looks like my kind of drama and I’m happy to write about the release that took place last week. The Complete series is a six DVD set. I love science and how far it can be pushed dramatically on TV. Scares me a bit because I get sucked into believe all of the possibilities.
"The Eleventh Hour"
Acclaimed film and television producer Jerry Bruckheimer (Pirates of the Caribbean, CSI) is back again in the nick of time with…ELEVENTH HOUR. Starring Rufus Seewell as Dr. Jacob Hood, a brilliant biophysicist and special science advisor to the government. The series follows the enigmatic doctor as he investigates scientific crises and oddities, everything from cloning to cryogenics. With absolute jurisdiction and a resolute pursuit of those who would abuse and misuse scientific discoveries and breakthroughs for their own gain, he’s called in at the eleventh hour as the last line of defense. Marley Shelton co-stars as Special Agent Rachel Young, the decorated FBI protection officer assigned to watch his back. Based on the British miniseries by acclaimed writer Stephen Gallagher, the series follows this unlikely pair as they crusade to protect the substance of science from those with nefarious motives.
Here’s more about ELEVENTH HOUR:
“Storylines are paced and told well. Talent is top-notch. Sewell brings a nice touch of eccentricity and wry humor.”
