Brilliant and Engrossing
6 January 2001 | by Banky-4See all my reviews

Probably one of the better examples of fantasy work, especially for television. A very deep, and well acted series, never really gets old. I really wish they'd release the series on tape and/or DVD so that I could buy it. Really well done.
