Frank: What would you do without us, hey?
Tom Crane: Revert rapidly to prayer.
Frank: Infra-red film, in case the lights go out, linked to these sensors which will go off automatically. Oh, cheer up! It might happen, whatever it is. It's all very hush-hush this time. Are we really up against something, or can't you say?
Tom Crane: Yes, it could be dangerous. Martindale should have told you that much. Have you had much luck with this stuff in the past?

Not so great, still there is a mysterious quality to it which keeps one wanting to see what happens at times.
31 December 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I found what I've seen of this series to be too slow and not very interesting for my liking. I must admit I bought this series blind thinking it would be another good BBC like production - how wrong I was. The most interesting part of the series is how it is an early version of X-files. Also the mysterious element kept me watching, because I wanted to know what happens next, more so out of curiosity. I bought this set around March / April and haven't watched all of it yet

  • Ifind it difficult to finish episodes and need a frequent breaks


before I can come back and finish watching them. I'm hoping when I start watching the remaining episodes - there's about six to go - my opinion might change somewhat, and I'll be able to watch the rest of the series without needing to feel I have to leave the room. I've never done this with any BBC TV series, so obviously this series isn't doing much for me. I will have to make sure I do my research more thoroughly before investing in a TV series I know little about. This is the only dud purchase I've made, and even though it is so, there are elements of The Omega Factor I find slightly interesting... like the psychic connection, visions of the main protagonist. I will report later what I think of the entire series once I'm finished, but I can see why it only lasted one season.
