any of you guys picked it up yet? i was looking fwd to this but high expectation has me disappointed. flashback, the 2nd league of extraordinary mini series, i found the ending anti climactic (not to mention predictable - they were using derivative properties after all), despite a great start with the inclusion of that mars adventurer yank guy and the focus on hyde, the ending felt like the concept was running out of steam. but with the prose story with reference to their their french counterpart i was expecting black dossier to be more...immediate? anyways, black dossier starts off with SPOILER only 2 protagonist and fast forward to mid 20th century. the couple seem familiar but something seems off (one of the stories within a story gives a clue, featuring orlando and a life preserving pool) and deep smack in ian fleming territory. the world has changed much since we saw it in the previous mini series and britain, apparently for the worse. to cut the story short, the protagonists are on the run after pilfering the black dossier from vauxhall and MI5 is on their ass. things are pretty tight up til the middle part, but then moore decides to break the fourth wall to end it, which is the main reason for my discontent. still, between the main story and the backstory theres a lot of stuff to absorb (out of which only the woosters was recognizable to me), all is not lost, i will have a lot of material to ponder while sit on my porcelain throne.
