A cool piece of futuristic TV
22 November 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I loved this series when it came out and thought it was quite daring. James Belushi acted and never looked better in his life and Kim Cattral was really cool. The idea of this TV religion was an amusing way of perhaps making fun of the banal Scientology movement (just my opinion!)

Brad Dourf was also exceptionally good at playing the confused space cadet (he's always so fantastic at playing weird people isn't he?) and the computer graphics used at the time was pretty ground breaking.

My favourite moment from the series was Kim in her red wedding dress. I recommend this Series as it had a weird but unique storyline.

Check this series out for yourself and make up your own mind.
