Surprisingly good, unfortunately cancelled.
30 June 2003 | by (Auckland, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Accidentally catching the pilot for this show on late night TV, I decided to give it a chance in lieu of the infomercials playing on other channels.

I was lucky that I did. From the moment the Earth explodes this show dares to be different, with charismatic acting and witty scripting. It is rare to find a television show that explores hard-sf ideas, and even more rare to find one that is actually entertaining.

If you have ever wished that sf was as smart, well-presented and entertaining as the Sopranos then your wish is fulfilled.

Unfortunately, this show was canceled after it's first season. (A surprising move, given that it was Showtimes second-highest rated show.)
