Quotes

Hawkins' Assistant: The problem appears to be neurological. The more you use the harness, the more dependent on it you become.
Dr. Miles Hawkins: It's a technical problem. All progress comes at a cost.
Hawkins' Assistant: The harness is destructive, Doctor! If you continue to wear it, you sacrifice any hope of recovery.
Dr. Miles Hawkins: It's my body, Injia. I wouldn't dare test it on anyone else. If you don't like it, I can have you on the first plane back to Africa.
Hawkins' Assistant: But then you'd have to find new assistants.
[laughs]
Hawkins' Assistant: I can just imagine the interview process, Doctor.

MANTIS kicks cartilage butt!
13 October 2001 | by BykrscoutSee all my reviews

Say what you will about this series, the helmet and outfit he wears is amazing! thanks have to go to KNB EFX who designed and made the suit for the pilot and the series. the head piece alone is a thing of beauty but when seen close up and in person it becomes an even more astonishing work of art. The style and eyeball candy of this series alone is enough to give it a second shot. Wonder if anyone has the episodes on tape.
