The Sarah Jane Adventures - Invasion of the Bane
I watched the first episode (pilot?) of The Sarah Jane Adventures on New Years Day.
First things first, it's a kids programme. Having said that, I quite enjoyed it.
The good things:
- It was fast paced, fun and had some special effects.
- Elisabeth Sladen was good as Sarah Jane, still missing The Doctor.
- K9 got a cameo.
- Sarah Jane's car was very cool. (A Morris?)
The bad things:
- One of the child characters was really annoying, hopefully she'll be gone in the full series.
- The story was unoriginal, even including a monster in the roof ala the jagrafess.
- K9 was in a cupboard closing a black hole. WHAT?!
It has potential.
