Five years into the future, five Odyssey astronauts and a NASA technician are setting up NASA's latest high tech satellite just outside of Earth's orbit. The five are: Chuck Taggart - a charismatic authoritative and stoic mission commander and former ace pilot, Kurt Mendel - a likable pompous horny quip-prone British science author and NASA's special celebrity guest on the flight who actually does know a lot about science and can be brave and cunning despite claiming otherwise, Neil Taggart - Chuck's young adult son and genuine computer expert, Sarah Forbes - a popular news anchor and TV reporter who's there to make an exclusive piece about the mission, and Angela Perry - Chuck's experienced co-pilot who's father is a powerful senator. Everything is going fine until the Earth is suddenly caught on fire and then implodes for no apparent reason.

[V.O. intro from every episode except pilot]
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.

I have always been a big fan of more of a space opera Sci-Fi. Star Trek, Star Wars etc.. I did like X-Files but I never thought I would really get into one that did not involve a lot of space scenes. Manny outdid himself on this one. I know it is a bit late in the ball game but I just watched the pilot and a couple of episodes.
Odyssey 5 I think is probably one of the best, if not the best Sci-Fi shows that exist. It was packed with action and adventure and comedy from start to finish. Has something for everyone in this series. Edge of your seat type of stuff. I was really impressed. I wish this would have been on another network other than Showtime, I have no doubt that we would still be watching season 5 now..
Bring it back..
