Thought this would be a turkey but pleasantly surprised
1 July 2001 | by (Ipswich, UK) – See all my reviews

Plymouth aired today (July 1, 2001) in the UK. Thought the premise sounded pretty dopey, but it wasn't too bad after all. All the way through it, I was thinking "Picket Fences in Space" and that's kind of what it turned into, but it was in no way offensive. I guess it was a pilot for a TV series, but if they ever made one, it never aired in UK. Dale Midkiff is suitably square-jawed as the hero, Gil. Great to see some sci-fi that doesn't have bumpy-headed aliens!
