looks cool
12 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

I know a guy who worked on the crew for this. He says it's a kind of X-Files meets Sliders meets Han Solo. They shot the whole thing in South Africa with a lot of S African talent, so it looks different from anything you're probably used to seeing.

Apparently, there's a ton of directors -- a new one each episode? I think that's a good thing, because science ficiton shows usually benefit from having a bunch of people at the helm. Its important to keep the ideas fresh, because without that, you don't get any challenge. X-Files was definitely better for having so many directors. Or Sopranos, even, but I know that's not sci fi.

The buzz at MIPCOM was that the science end of things could be really cool, too. Parallel universes and traveling between them. I'm not sure if this is supposed to happen with machines that the characters build? Apparently the post production happened in Montreal and there's gonna be some good effects. I heard there's an entire city built in a computer.
