A "to be continued movie...not continued".
20 January 2004 | by (Winnipeg) – See all my reviews

A "to be continued movie...not continued". This best describes my over all feeling of disappointment with this TV pilot. Fans of Rod Taylor (I didn't know he was an Aussie!) will enjoy seeing the 70 something actor going through his paces (in an Aussie accent) in this predictable scifi film. The film reminds me of Gene Rodenberry's "Andromeda" (Long lost ship vehicle). Some good performaces... but as this was only a pilot be forewarned that the film only serves as a vehicle for future stories of which there were none.
