One of the most memorable mini-series I've ever seen.
24 November 1998 | by (Huntington Beach, California) – See all my reviews

The acting in this series was superb! The subject matter is probably more pertinent today than it was when the show was released--definitely ahead of its time. Considering the incredible advances made in gene manipulation since then, I believe this is a series that should be seen by everyone.
