Gracepoint has finally arrived to our screens… and it’s obviously great… obviously because the first episode is exactly the same as the first episode of Broadchurch… the only difference being the cast (most of them, anyway) and the accent!
This was only the first episode and they said that the story won’t be exactly the same and I so want to believe them… because it’s a great story, but they could have changed a few things in the first episode. It didn’t need to be a shot by shot remake of the original, though.
One thing is pretty clear to me, I found the british cast way way better… (though I’m glad Kevin Zegers is on there 🙂 ). Anna Gunn, amazing as she is, is not Olivia Colman… David Tennant, however, is very much David Tennant, without his scottish accent… though when Emmett Carver started to shout, David’s scottish accent started showing! Let’s see what the next weeks will bring.
