I've enjoyed it so far....'bout fifty percent thru season one. It was picked up for a season two even before the first episode aired.

I am presently reading one of the four novellas on which the series is based and I see a great deal of cinematic alterations from the novella. Some interesting speculation on why such elaborate deviations were filmed.

Its sort of a Loyal Wife versus Black Widow fascination.

The first three episodes start on BBCAmerica or AMC channel in a few minutes so I better start slapping the TV set to get it working by 8:00am.

Drawing near the end of season one now.
Its been interesting as an amoral black widow versus loyal wife out to save the world type thing.
A bit better in the four novellas than in film though.

In briefly reviewing some of the story line discrepancies between the textual version and the video version, I can see sensible reasons for many of them if for no other reason than its far easier to depict a murder in a dimly lit night club than in a totally dark alley. There is also a difference between killing off a major character via a noble act rather than via a one night stand with a pickup of a transsexual prostitute in a dive bar.
