Best Sci-Fi series ever; best TV any genre since Soap.
22 September 1998 | by (Redmond, WA, USA) – See all my reviews

Yes, yes, I know, the horse in a can was stupid; the guy in The Greatest Love Story Never told was a slime-ball; the special effects in Flower Child are laughable, etc., etc. But the major characters in this show are so real I feel as though I've always known them and always will. The premise is well thought out and convincing. The Terrians are great 'creatures.' The subtext is always amusing and relevant. The so-called 'cannibalism' episode is the most powerful hour of TV I have ever seen. The three Tim Curry episodes bristle with tension. I LOVE THIS SHOW.
