It's a shame it was cancelled.
12 September 2002 | by (Dundee, Scotland) – See all my reviews

'Earth 2' will always be one of my favourite sci-fi shows. The plot took the simple idea of exploring and turned it into something more unique. It was interesting seeing the survivers struggle each day, facing new problems and even conspiracies that took them to the heart of their own government back on the stations.

Most of the characters were likeable and concrete in their own right, even the two children were not the typical annoying brats usually found on such shows (Wesley Crusher anyone!).

I never really understood why it was cancelled so prematurely after only one season when trash like 'Power Rangers' and other such shows get longer. I think it would have fare well if it was allowed to flourish but now I just have to content myself with re-runs on the Sci-Fi Channel.
