Did You Know?

This series was supposed to have 40 episodes, but due to resource problems, the project was eventually cancelled ending at Episode 37, the mission where the Roughnecks had to defend Oahu with Johnny Rico being the lieutenant.See more »
Continuity: Rico's rank on his helmet is not consistent, when he's promoted to sergeant in some episodes the mark on his helmet is still a single chevron instead of three.See more »
[Ibanez is shooting at a hole in the cave to give out signal for any of the Roughnecks to find them. Rico wakes up from the gunfire]
Pvt. Johnny Rico:Hey, keep it down here, I'm trying to get some shut-eye.
Lt. Carmen Ibanez:Rico!
Pvt. Johnny Rico:What are you doing?
Lt. Carmen Ibanez:I'm trying to use your laser to send up a flare. They have to be looking for us right now.
Pvt. Johnny Rico:Hold off. You're almost out of juice, and the laser will show up better once it's dark.
Lt. Carmen Ibanez:I refuse to die in such a stupid way!
Pvt. Johnny Rico:There's no such thing as a smart way.

Great show!, 24 June 2000
Author: klchu from California

For a "kids" show, this is one of the better shows on TV. There is more plot and characterization in one season of "Roughnecks" than in five years of "Voyager." The computer animation is excellent (for it's time), but it is not a crutch or the star of the show. Rather, the CGI is just a well-used tool that is used to create an excellent show.

I think this show, as a whole, is much better than the movie in many ways. It has action without being too violent, and drama without being too frightening for kids.

Even though the show is targeted at kids (older kids), there is plenty for adult sci-fi fans to enjoy: good stories, long story arcs, morals, consequences, and characters that are more real than 75% of the "real" shows on TV. The animators give the characters life and the voice actors give them souls.
