A Conversation for 'Ultraviolet' - the TV Series
Researcher PSG Started conversation Jul 11, 2001
Oh just noticed a really bad typing error:
In the bit on Code V material, the bullet point on active use of religious artifacts the word should be "by" not as it is now "bi"
Researcher PSG Posted Jul 12, 2001
the word should be "there" not "their" in the section "and their are some"

This isn't another typo, but - the main entry seems to imply the series was broadcast at 9pm in its Channel 4 broadcast. It was 10pm. It's a nice little guide to a great series - though I would've included Corin Redgrave's character in the cast list. He may only be in the last two episodes but he was a key figure in the story.

Actually I left him out on purpose because I didn't want to give the game away for those who didn't see it and I felt mentioning any of the Leeches might put me in that dodgy teritory.
p.s. was it 10pm? I'll have to check.
The method of ressurection is not unknown after the sixth (final) episode.

I know, but when I write about a TV series I tend to keep things back if there inclusion would spoil it for those who haven't seen it, and I didn't think it made the entry invalid by its exclusion.
Just my point of view

When we first meet redgraves character, we don't even know his name and that is one of the minor points of the episode. But apart from that if I list 1 code V I have to list them all, and that leads to giving the plot away, especially seeing as how if I write something about a character it may give it away, if I don't a new viewer will assume that they are code V from the start which again can cause problems.
This is just one of those series where a little discretion is required.
About the US remake I am hoping to GOD they aren't going to make it, as they are planning to make a hash of it and so sully the name.

The US pilot was made, but ity has never been aired. It featured Irdis Elba playing Vaughn in that pilot. It was produced by Howard Gordan and Chip Johannessen who are currently producers and writers on 24. Howard Gordon once commented in a moderated chat at www.scifi.com that the pilot wasn't very good, but I still I like to see it to make a judgement for myself on it.
