Sarah Forbes: Doesn't give you much comfort does it? Not believing in an afterlife.

Odyssey 5 is a ten, Showtime is a zero.
3 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Finally an intelligent well written excellent SciFi program, the best I've ever seen and what does Show Time do, ax it. Odyssey 5 had a very strong cast doing equally strong work, they deserved better.

Peter Weller was outstanding and completely believable as was almost all the cast. The one weak link was "Neil" as a 21 year old astronaut but after a few episodes Christopher Gorhams excellent portrayal made you forget the incongruity of such a character.

Each episode added to the suspense and rewarded you for watching without spoon-feeding the plot away.

I forget who said it but it won't be the lawyers who are shot come the revolution it will be the TV programmers.
