Not the best but really a good single-shot intro to the series
27 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

This is a combination/remake of episodes 1, Voyagers + 15 Voyagers of the Titanic. The negative reviews are really VERY uncalled for so I had to give this to even up the score at 2+ & 2-. I grant that the special effects aren't fantastic, but that misses the point. If you stand back and look at the big picture, as with most action adventure sci fi this is about RELATIONSHIP, and considering this is Jon-Eric's first starring role, it's really good for those with eyes to see, unlike the bad reviewers. It's absurd how just like blind brainwashed people talk about folk being "black" or "white" when scientifically everyone is really different shades of melanin brown, so too, the sickos that say this is NAMBLA territory are also useful idiots for perverts. Those who aren't mindless tools know this is the wonderful gift specifically of Phineas being the dad Jeffrey never had and generally of him being a hero saving history, though I do think it would have come off better if it had been less camp/silly and more serious, but most audiences are sadly too childish for that. What's particularly irritating about these negative reviews is their at least potentially fatal interference with what might have been an attempt at reviving the series, which would be a wonderful idea, though pretty hard to follow in Jon-Eric's heroic footsteps, though I'd love to see Star Gate Atlantis's Joe Flanigan take that lead. Don't let the inappropriately negative reviews fool you into missing out on this. They have a right to their opinion but that doesn't make them authoritative and I can guarantee many disagree.
