I do not get why people are so critical of bad special effects, sets and other things that are budget related; I believe that quality of content and acting along with deep concepts and an original feel is what creates a timeless show. I happen to be a big fan of the theater and theater has very minimalistic special effects for obvious reasons. When we see Hamlet preformed do we leave the theater saying damm that would have been great if it had better special effects? Does this take away from Shakespeare's undeniable Genius?
I am obviously not saying that Star Hunter is Shakespeare or even Star Trek for that matter but I am saying that Star Hunter is about the story's that the writers tell and how the actors manage to make it work in a very high end B movie sort of way. Once again, just like with Star Trek its not about the special effects its about the feel it gives us. Lets not forget how many terrible shows and movies come out with incredible special effects and people seem to eat this garbage up, I just do not understand how people fall for this stuff and how they cannot separate substance from special effects and fancy sets etc.
This show gives me that feeling I get when I watch Star Trek the original series re-runs and we all know that Star Trek the original series was about as low budget as it gets but it had that magical thing about it, where we all felt as though we were on the ship with them and they were always touching on very deep subjects that apply to all eras. I feel that Star Hunter has done this quite well in a lesser way.
Also I am one of those movie Geeks that takes the time to watch the credits and cross reference from one episode to the next and I must say that the best episodes are written by Peter Horton and with all that he has done, I am surprised they managed to grab him up to write for this show. His talents shine through and the difference's are quite obvious although the less experienced writers have written some pretty great episodes as well. Thanks for reading my comments and I hope you all give this show a chance because once you get into the grove and get to know the characters you will find that it makes for great late night Television!!!
