    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Was a horribly written show, where the effects looked cheap, and where the history didn't even feel accurate.

    When the ship started to go down, there looked to be little to no panic and hardly told the real story of the survivors who told their story. It was like somebody had said: "Right. Let's take the tragic story of titanic and act like there were really only 300 people on the boat instead of 2,200"

    And when the boat went down in the final episode, it looked like there was hardly anyone in the water. The ship also went down way too quickly, and the "Atlantic ocean" did not look as cold as it should have been. In fact it actually looked like they were in a swimming pool than an ocean. Also the idea that each episode started with the beginning of the voyage and ended at the middle of the ships sinking really confused the heck out of me, because i didn't know if half the scenes were before a previous scene from the last episode or not.

    I suppose the one good thing of this show was probably Jenna's character. She was sweet.

    But all in all, a dreadful show that just shouldn't have been made. Needless to say, the movie was better.

    Alas, most of the other characters are so weakly sketched, they don't make a ripple.

    The cast is universally fine, but there's honestly nothing much it can do to avoid being swamped with Fellowes' arrogant attempt to capture the social dimensions of turn-of-the-century Britain, oh, and the sinking of this big boat too.

    This fast-paced Titanic miniseries gets better as it goes along.
