The basic premise of Andromeda - man from an earlier era piecing civilization back together - was the subject of three earlier Roddenberry pilots: "Genesis II" starring Alex Cord, and "Planet Earth" and "Strange New World" starring John Saxon. See more »


Beka Valentine: Honestly, Dylan, it was kinda beautiful, in an impending apocalypse kinda way. And now that it's been reclassified to an averted apocalypse, I feel I can appreciate it even more.

Andromeda Rules as Number One - and I Love All of It!!!
29 September 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I read various comments on the site and I was amazed, aghast and bemused by various comments from many viewers. Not being too familiar or justifiably an expert on sci-fi, my opinion will be a bit different than most.

It was only by chance or a stroke of luck that I came across a string of episodes that are still currently aired on cable that got me so intrigued about Andromeda in the first place. Most of the episodes varied from season one to five and gave nothing away about what the show was about, but I was curious and did some research on the internet and what I found I liked and I wanted to see the entire show. In January of this year(2008), I placed an order for the entire series on DVD – worth every penny I spent, great value and a treasure worth keeping!! For those like me who have not seen the show, please keep an open mind because this show has a lot to offer. It is now three years later that I'm watching the series and it's also three years later that the show is still lingering around and its three years later that this show is still Number One and its three years later that I believe this journey has more great stories to offer!!! I believe Andromeda deserves a Perfect Ten rating for great original and interesting story by the writers, great set production and inspirational artistic direction from prop master, wardrobe design and make-up to directors for editing, photography, engineering and special effects, great imagination and artistic talent from the entire cast of actors who work extremely hard at making each character more interesting and identifiable and smart planning and management from all the executives for making it a great quality production show.

Andromeda has a cast of six characters, all of them individually different. They all come from a different culture and race, they all have secrets to hide, making them all intriguing and fun to know.

Each individual character is far from perfect. Each of them has flaws and weaknesses, each one of them left someone behind and each character has a story to tell and someone to love and if you give it time throughout each season you will get to know them fairly well and share some of their individual adventures. With each season the adventures get bolder and more fun and exciting to watch.

The Andromeda story offers hope where there are few, friends and family to relate to in the best and worst of times. Their friendship holds the story together from season to season. Having the DVD series it's not hard to see just how good the friendship genuinely becomes and how hard all the actors work at making their characters as strong, as fun and as enjoyable and their individual talent brings them closer to the audience and strengthens the show as each season passes on.

Each season was a winner from one to five. Each season is a page-turner like every great book I've ever read, it's hard to put it aside. All the cliffhanger episodes for each season make me thankful that I don't have long to wait.

Andromeda delivers!! When I first began on this journey watching the series on DVD without any of its publicity, I never felt let down in any of the episodes in any of its seasons. I love them all. It's the only television series of its kind that I can sincerely unequivocally say that it's the best dramatic action adventure I have ever seen in a really long, long time and I have no hesitation in making this a must see recommendation!! Sincere best wishes, thanks and appreciation go to Kevin Sorbo, Lisa Ryder, Gordon Michael Woolvett, Keith Hamilton Cobb, Laura Bertam, Steve Bacic, Alexa Doig, and Brandy Ledford and the entire production team!! YOU ARE ALL AMAZING!! I love all the characters.

THE Canadian Cast, YOU ROCK!!! KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!! As for the negative reviews on the show, I urge you all to re-consider!! You have no idea what you are missing. Revisit all his performances and see the true quality of his work, for what its worth, its truly worthy of a revisit. But for me, it just took less than a few episodes to recognize what a treasure I have found in this stunning, amazing talented artist!! For the first time in my life, the DVD's I purchase at first sight with Kevin Sorbo in the lead, I know with absolute confidence that I won't be disappointed.

On a final positive note, I'm just standing up for someone who is not only a genuinely nice person but who is one of the most hardworking intelligent talented actors in the industry who has a natural way of using his talent to draw people to his character and getting them to see what he wants them to see rather than what they want or expect him to be and above or else I admire his integrity and his work ethics.

He connects extremely well with the audience and fellow actors and the people he works with!! He is an actor who is always in command of how his character is played which makes him a very compelling unpredictable lead. Egos aside, he is genuinely good at what he does best and that is, "fight to win" and I'm on the winning team – "so let's bring it"!!
