Tekwar
4 February 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A pretty good sci fi show, it had 4 TV movies that came before it. Watch the 4 TV movies first than watch the show. The show is a a cop show with sci fi added to it. The effects are good and so is the acting. It's a Canadian sci fi show with an America studio (Universal) backing it or something.

Canadian elements: William Shatner (born and raised in Montreal, Quebec), some of the actors are Canadian and the show was shot in Toronto, Ontario. Give this show a shot with you like sci fi, or cop shows, or William Shatner.

The full show, including the 4 TV movies that came before it need to be released on DVD.

It would be nice to get a box set of the show, with some extra features, manly William Shatner talking about his Tekwar books and the TV show.
