I don't follow Specialty drama series as a rule--was unable to get through Game of Thrones season 1--so that I was able to follow this one to the end is remarkable. Some of the acting is really fine. Thandie Newton as a saloon prostitute does superb work; her gradual understanding of who she is and where she came from kept me watching. Anthony Hopkins as the Doctor Moreau figure had a lot of fun with playing God with his creations. Ed Harris is excellent as usual; that bone-dry humour is always attractive. I did not like the long series of fake climaxes that litter the course of the ten episodes. It's just too obvious that the story has to expand to fill the time allotted to it. Sometimes I just said "Get on with it!" as there was yet another shoot-out. But there was enough enjoyment to keep me watching.
