Bugs, like any other TV show had its ups and downs, however it should be remembered well for its imaginative story lines.
25 July 2004 | by (York) – See all my reviews

When I first started watching bugs when I was about 9, I through it was one of the best programs around. However as I got older the shows cracks started to show, the sometimes rather poor special effects and general things that did not make sense.

However, when Bugs was at its best it really did quite well, for example the "Cyberax" storyline really captured my imagination and when they did get round to doing the Special effects right, they did them well. I still enjoy watching the show on DVD and to me, it still has not lost its charm despite the noticeable errors.

It is my opinion that the show should be remembered well because of how fun it was. Bugs may not have lived up completely to the standards of cool gadgets and supper villains of James Bond or the Avengers, but it still packed some very interesting characters and organisations, i.e. "Jean Daniel" and "The Hive".

P.S Why did Craig McLachlan leave the show after series three???
