So it begins
23 October 1999 | by (Ardmore, PA) – See all my reviews

What a wonderful beginning to a wonderful series. The two hour tv movie puts the series in it's original direction. In the first hour, events seemed rushed and fast moving, but it all made sense. The story is well written and pieced together. Acting is very well done, most notably John Rhys-Davies.

The effects aren't great, but not bad either. The characters were rather flat but hey it was the series premiere. A very good movie. I give it 8/10.
