I'd caught an episode or two or the original first season, with Michael Pare, and made sure to keep an eye on it. It's the post-"Star Wars" world, and this manages a surprising visual texture for such a low-budget offering. Pare has turned up missing, and the son he was searching for, is now searching for him. This shows a real influence for the British school of SF TV. It's never as cheesy (or addictive), as "Doctor Who", it's not as funny as "Red Dwarf", and it doesn't have the seriousness of "Blake's 7". Yet, it blends bits of all of them, (and the usual US stuff), into a flaky sort of "Space Detective" series, that can be quite entertaining. The acting is rather low-key, but overall, it fills the airtime admirably. It's pretty low-rent, but it embraces, and occasionally rises above, its humble origins. The Canadian co-production is worth a look for SF fans. I'd like to see "Carvaggio", "Andromeda" (from "Andromeda"), and "Holly" (from "Red Dwarf") in a digital wrestling match!
