Read Or Die vs ROD

Last night I watched ep2 of R.O.D. - the TV with my wife. (I've been watching the raw Japanese episodes by myself, and I've seen through ep6, then I'm going back and watching the subtitled versions with Darla to fill in the gaps in my comprehension.)

I finally realized the biggest reason the TV series feels different from the Read Or Die OVA -- it has a purely modern setting, rather than the steampunk setting of the OVA. Granted, there was plenty of modern tech in the OVA as well, with the steampunk aspects mostly employed by the I-jin and the British Library folks; I wonder if that will turn out to be the case in the TV series as well, or if that's just an element they didn't carry through.

Oh, I think it does start to add in stuff as it goes along. There are some mentions of the British Library. I'm kind of curious as to what the exact history in the show is.
