| An impressive TV version of a great action film
This eight part series is centred on the eponymous Hanna; a fifteen year old girl not like others. We learn in the opening scenes that as a baby she was rescued from a top secret CIA programme by Erik Heller who raised her deep in a Polish forest far from other people; here she has learnt survival skills as well as languages but not how to interact with other people. One day she meets a logger and soon Marissa Wiegler, the woman in charge of the programme, learns of her survival... it isn't long before she is in a CIA facility.

She quickly manages to escape, showing that she has amazing fighting skills, and finds herself with an English family who were holidaying nearby. She travels with them for a while hoping to be reunited with Eric. In the episodes that follow she learns more about just who she is as well as what it means to be a teenage girl before ultimately confronting those who created her and now want her dead.

Having really enjoyed the 2011 film version of 'Hanna' I was keen to watch this, as well as a little nervous in case it was disappointing. Thankfully I enjoyed this too, perhaps not quite as much but that would have been too much to hope for. Early on it is effectively the same story but later deviates from being a remake... to my mind this was a good choice as it meant I stopped comparing the two version all the time. There is plenty of varied action throughout the series; certainly enough to please me. The extended run time meant more time could be spent developing characters; mostly this was a good thing although some of the time Hanna spent as an 'ordinary girl' in England seemed superfluous and a distraction from the main plot; I'm sure most action fans would rather watch her fighting bad guys than learning about boys! The cast does a fine job; I was particularly impressed by Esme Creed-Miles; she does a great job as Hanna. Also notable are former co-stars in the US version of 'The Killing' Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman as Marissa and Erik. Episode eight, the last at the time I write this ends in a way that could be a satisfying conclusion to the series or the end of the first chapter; I rather hope it is the latter as I'd like Hanna to return. Overall I'd definitely recommend this to fans of action packed television shows; it is certainly better than most recent TV versions of popular action films.
