That's one of my favourite sci fi tv-shows
16 August 1999 | by Knight Of The CrossSee all my reviews

Somewhere on another planet, there was a war. One of the soldiers was suspect in treason. And the goverment of that planet decided to send him on Planet Earth to expiate his guilt. Now I don't remember exactly how many series were in this movie I watched this one seven years ago. But I remember almost all of them.

I watched with a big pleasure Jesse's adventures on Earth. I think that children will like this movie.
