Odyssey 5 is one of the most original shows to grace the small screen in the past decade
It is a well-constructed show with a good pace to it. The cast is brilliant and their on-screen chemistry only adds to the brilliance of the show.
In particular, the characters of Kurt Mendel, played by Sebastian Roché and Chuck Taggart, played by Peter Weller of RoboCop fame, are the most prominent ones in the show.
Kurt is the comedian of the show and the way in which Sebastian has brought him to life on-screen has not been accomplished successfully for a long time.
Peter Weller does a terrific job as the astronaut, Taggart. The role of the astronaut has been played many times before but Weller manages to reinvent it.
The action is also first rate and the storyline is original. Odyssey 5 is also effective in holding the viewer in suspense until the next episode. This is one of the many elements of the show that will guarantee its success in the future.
Long may Odyssey 5 last.
