Quotes

Lt. Col. Tyrus Cassius "TC" McQueen: Looking darkly upon Hector, swift footed Achilles answered, 'I cannot forgive you. As there are no trustworthy oaths between men and lions, there can be no love between you and me. Before then to glut with his blood, Ares, the god who fights under the shield's guard. Now the time comes for you to be a spearman and a bold warrior. You will pay in a lump for all the sorrows of my companions you have killed in your spear's fury.'

The best of the best.
2 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

An engaging and intense premise pits Colonel McQueen, the steely eyed, tough talking Commanding officer of the 58th, all alone against one of their deadliest foes: an invincible Chig fighter who has been picking off entire squadrons in previous episodes. This plays out with a classical soundtrack underscoring McQueen's pent up emotions over his painful personal life, and we get what was easily one of the best episodes in a very promising series.

To echo many other voices on here, I'll lament what a tragedy that such an ambitious, substantive show was (literally) cut off in its prime.

A woeful decision by whichever FOX execs partook in its demise. The show and its makers deserved better. I hope they know how well regarded it has become.
