This was an interesting show, no way around it. Sort of a cross between Star Trek and ER. Unfortunately, it was cancelled! Isn't that always the way? Put an intriguing show on the air and then dump it just because it doesn't take off right away. I only caught the last several episodes in July 1999.
When I contacted my local UPN station, they said that when the show originally aired in the fall of 1998, it received "very low ratings." They filled me in that the network aired the episodes I saw to fulfill its commitment to the producers. Interestingly, however, they noted that "it is always possible that a cable network (like the Sci-Fi Channel) will pick it up."
Keep your fingers crossed. Joe Morton was great. I can't remember having seen him in anything except "Terminator 2: Judgement Day." The entire cast was doing a great job, from what I could tell.
Agree or disagree? Feel free to e-mail me.
