Quotes

[V.O. intro from every episode except pilot]
Chuck Taggart: We saw the Earth destroyed, and in a heartbeat everything and everyone we knew was gone. There were five of us, the crew of the space shuttle Odyssey, and we were the only survivors. A mysterious being who called himself The Seeker rescued us and sent us back in time. And now we have five years to live over, five years to discover who or what destroyed the Earth, five years to stop it from happening again.

I miss good sci-fi such as O5
26 April 2003 | by (Vancouver, Canada) – See all my reviews

A few weeks ago in the wee hours, I caught my first episode of Odyssey 5 (on the SPACE channel,Canada), and

WAS HOOKED! I didn't quite follow the storyline, but the

actors made the ep, and it has a great atmosphere. Watched another one, and have been telling folks how good

it is, only to find it's already been CANCELLED by Showtime! This afternoon, I saw the pilot episode, and

it's about the ONLY tv sci-fi that has given me goosebumps!

Is it my imagination, or when I was a kid (I'm 40+ now)

was there just MORE good science fiction available, recognized as a thinking man's (er, person's) media or

literature entertainment? You just can't seem to find any these days (Outer Limits manages it fairly often), and

when it does appear, the powers that be nix it. I just

don't get it.

Great premise, interesting characters and outstanding actors....seems like a perfect recipe to me!

Linda Vancouver, Canada
