Very good for the time it was made, but it has some serious flaws.
5 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ultimately I do recommend it, but it is often terribly frustrating. The most serious problem is that supposedly intelligent characters are constantly doing very stupid things at the convenience of the plot and it's very heavy handed. It shoots itself in foot too often.

Yet it is also thought provoking and consistently entertaining. Watch one episode and you want to see the next one.

For the many people who saw this when they were young it's easy to understand why it had such an impact on them. It's an excellent show for something from 1975, but not quite as magnificent as some memories paint it. It would certainly interest anyone who has read Stephen Kings "The Stand", though it doesn't contain the supernatural element his novel does.

All of that aside it is worth checking out and truly is superior to most other TV shows.

ps- Why do so many British shows look so drained of color? Star Trek had its share of flaws but it was always bright and interesting to look at.
