I was trying to decide what it was about this show that seemed so familiar to me. Then it struck me...this is simply a high-tech version of the old TV show, "Time Tunnel".
This show just doesn't hold together for me. For one thing, it is just too self-conscious, in spite of using the same old clichés from "The X Files". (Hey, instead of having a mysterious Cigarette Man, why don't we have a mysterious dark lady? You know, they can't figure out whose side she is actually on....)
Lt. Hobbes is selected to participate in the war simulation because he is supposedly such a great soldier, but he acts like a civilian dweeb when given the opportunity. His character is one of the huge flaws in this series.
On the other hand, some of the FX are pretty cool. They just don't compensate for the poor writing and lousy characters.
I rented the entire series on DVD, but I could only watch the pilot and the first two episodes. It was clearly going nowhere.
If you want to watch a show that is far superior in every respect, go rent Josh Whedon's "Firefly".
** out of *****
