Never watched the original series, however I'll be finding a torrent for it asap as I'm loving the remake so far. Very fast paced and intriguing.
I hate the fact though that after the 4th aired episode, they're leaving it till March 2010. That'll kill alot of hype around it. I'll definitely pick it back up again when it restarts though. Expect the 4th episode to have a huge cliffhanger.
