Dreadful
5 July 2002 | by mkingma-2See all my reviews

I have seen many comic-adaptations, but never have I seen taken such liberties with the original concept. It was as if I saw a totally new show, with character-names from a comic. I have nothing against Yancy Butler as such, but as the comic-Sarah Pezzini she was totally miscast. She doesn't come near looking like the paper-Sarah. And what was it with Danny Woo appearing as a ghost? Who came up with that? It was like the writers thought they could do a beter job, than the comic-writers.
