User Reviews

While not the most exciting it will appeal greatly to sci fi fetishists and lovers of the obscure
30 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The series is enjoyable for its darkly entertaining sci-fi themed fetishist nature. It isn't meant to be deeply thought provoking in the normal sense, it is designed to be outside the box and provide an alternative to Kevin Sorbo firing blasts at everything. I enjoy it thoroughly for the mere fact that it does not follow normal conventions for a science fiction show and it dares to write story lines that appeal to the subcultures of sci-fidom. The plot is not the most inventive, but the banter and atmospheric situation of the show makes for a very enjoyable watch, especially late night when it normally airs. i highly recommend it to people who like science fiction that thinks outside normal sci-fi convention.
