Quotes

Holly Hathaway: Ralph, you were right, this cape is so cumbersome and - you know, I'm not so sure about these little shoes, they're so blah. Maybe we could go with a nice pump?
Ralph Hinkley: Eh, Holly, I think you'd better forget redesigning the suit, I think the green guys are kinda locked into this model.

Cute, close but no cigar
10 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

It was a cute retry of a great show. As a huge fan of G.A.M. I love the thought that they tried to redo it, BUT, it just did not hold the snap of the original series. While the woman was cute, and looked really good in the suit, she was too flighty and too obnoxious, she was more annoying than foil to Maxwell. I know what they were going for, I just do not think they captured it. Had the show aired and progressed maybe it would have improved, but it just goes to show that you shouldn't rehash a show unless you have the same caliber of actors and writers. I also felt cheapened by the way Ralph had to give up the suit, it seemed like a cop out. It was emotional, but it seemed like the show ended there, then they went to the goofy girl. I am glad that I saw it, it gave some closure, but unless you are a die hard fan, it is almost passable.
