Gormenghastly?

Gormenghast again.
I've had two bits of feedback on this. One from a UK viewer, who said the whole production was very disappointing....or at any rate, he felt it avoided the 'darkness' of the books and treated them almost as comedy. 'Gormenghastly', the British press called it.
Nevertheless, it's probably still worth a look. If only so we can squirm a bit wondering if this is the fate of all fantasy adapted for the screen....
Another person pointed out that the series is available on video already, so go here if you want to check that out.
Thanks to Les and /iVilDeD for that.
