The 70's loveable dog in a Saturday Morning sci-fi show
9 November 2002 | by (Colorado Springs, Colorado) – See all my reviews

This project feature the dog Benji was a different twist. It took Benji the animal star of many family tear-jerker movies and put in into a science fiction project for the kiddie set. Benji discovers an alien vessel that has come from a highly advanced civilization. The pilot is a young buy who's planet has fallen under a dictatorship and his family was on the wrong side of this dictator. However he managed to escape his planet and hide on Earth. However two of his own people have been sent to Earth to retive him. Benji along with the prince's robot body guard Zax do their very best to protect him.

It's was too bad it only lived one season. Their have not been enough sci-fi action and the like, but the stories were well written and showed that Benji had a heart of gold even for those from the great beyond.
