I thought the BBC series had him in 1973!! maybe the USA had something against using 1973 for the story ?
American trash I think.

Saw the first half of episode one and to be honest had to stop watching because Harvey Keitel does not appear to have a funny bone.
Apart from that it was fine (particularly liked the ending of the scene in which Tyler first arrived in 73) but then it can't possible connect as well with a UK audience because of the cultural distance that comes with not growing up in the U.S.

Amazingly, I would like to watch this just to compare and contrast. I guess some of it will be lost on us just as our version would be lost on the Yanks!

Like I said it is perfectly good tv and has obviously been carefully thought out etc (hence the overhaul between pilot and series) but Keitel is like a blackhole compared to the force that was Philip Glenister.

I havent seen any of this, although I am aware that it was cancelled and there wont be a second season. I did some reading about it last night and found out how they ended it...
At the end of the series, it is revealed that Tyler's 2008 and 1973 realities were both fictitious, created by the onboard computer of a spacecraft that is carrying Tyler, Hunt, Norris, Carling, and Skelton on the first ever manned mission to the planet Mars, in 2035. The crew he worked with in 1973 were just virtual reality versions of his fellow spaceship crewmembers. His room number, "2B", is his sleeping unit; his old precinct, "Hyde", and his new precinct, the "125", are based on the name of the spacecraft - "Hyde 125"; his neighbor, Windy, is the name of the computer A.I.; Frank Morgan, an FBI agent in the series, is the Mission Control flight director. To sustain the crew, their minds were routinely kept active while asleep using virtual reality "neural stimulation" programs of their own choosing, but Sam's choice of a scenario where he was a police officer circa 2008 was abruptly changed to a 1973 setting by a meteor-storm induced glitch in the computer. This conclusion is markedly different from the conclusion of the original UK series, but is still left ambiguous as the first step on Mars depicts Gene Hunt's signature shoe stepping into the sand.
