It could be brought back...
25 April 2004 | by (Washington) – See all my reviews

This show was horrifically corny but it worked. It was one of those series that just kept you hooked, even though it didn't seem to follow any of the particular rules. I'd forgotten about them freezing Deb Adair (I did howl at that one). It was a good sci-fi premise, with good characters and with the lack of intelligent sci-fi now, it might be worth another shot. The interesting part about the show was the idea that they could interact based upon characters who didn't really get along rather than as some sort of a unit. I wasn't much for the sand people (too much like the Slestax of my childhood) but I guess it is always necessary to have a tall, mummy-like alien to keep things sci-fi.
