Trivia

One reason for the change from the original title "Space Police" to "Space Precinct" was that the Danish toy company Lego objected to the use of "Space Police", the name for a line of their toys. See more »

No wonder this show bombed!!
29 November 2005 | by mccarthystuartSee all my reviews

I can definitely see how "Space Precinct" was such a commercial disaster when it first came out.

For starters, the quality of the special effects was not very consistent at all. On one hand, you've got fairly slick, up-to-the-minute digitally-aided effects, then you've got live action shots using models, which wouldn't look out of place on "Red Dwarf" (which is what this show reminded me a lot of) Another thing that really ruined the show were those cheap-looking sets.

Secondly, what the hell was the point behind that bloody pointless "episode introduction" It makes the programme look even more like a kiddies' show.

Another problem I had with "Space Precinct" was the rather unsuccessful way in which it was trying to appeal to both young and old viewers-for example, take the ham-fisted way in which more adult subjects were handled in the show (such as racism, religion, and other adult-themed issue) "Space Precinct" was a rather hit-and-miss affair that had so much more potential. Even "Thunderbirds" was far superior to this.

Don't give up your day job, Mr. Anderson.
