The best thing about this show was the chemistry between the characters. Everyone was energetic in their roles, and it really drew me in and made me feel a part of their "family". The action was usually a bit on the silly side, though always entertaining. It struck a nice balance there. The special effects were good for a TV show, though still not too realistic, which added to the wonderful cheesiness of it. The writing was always creative. They would take just about any idea that popped into their heads and make an episode out of it, meaning that it never got bogged down in a handful of similar plots like so many other action/adventure shows. The fact that it never took itself very seriously was key to its charm.
All in all, a wonderful bit of escapism that was always a hoot. I'm glad it's available on DVD.
