BBC America's "Jekyll"

Even though I was annoyed at BBC America for cancelling "Afterlife," I'm too drawn to British programs to stay away indefinitely. So, I was happily surprised to find another well-made (let's hope that doesn't mean the kiss of death), intelligent Brit program: Jekyll. As you might imagine, it's another retelling of the Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde tale. But, thanks to the incredible skills of lead actor James Nesbitt, the show is terrifyingly, edge-of-your-seat good. Actually, the entire cast is good. The high-tech take on the story reminds me of other Brit programs, like "The Prisoner," and "The Avengers."

This TV show is definitely worth staying home on Saturday night for.
