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.

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

I had missed this when it first came out, but luckily they just re-ran the first 17 episodes on-demand. Sucked em all down in a week and I still want more. Some of the best acting I've seen in a series (not just sci-fi either) in a long time. Especially Weller. Is this "Buckaroo Banzai Grows Up" ?? They should have won an Emmy for episode 6....this is the one where they all start re-experiencing the worst thing that ever happened...so well done (I don't cry at much...) The mystery surrounding the adversaries is so well developed, I find myself guessing something different after each episode. Anyway, it looks like Showtime is extending the run!! New episodes on Sunday nite (10-18-04)Don't miss it!!!
