Alternate Versions

In the original broadcast of "I worship His Shadow" the scene of when Stanley Tweedle is on its way to the heretics, followed by the ForeShadow, is shown. It was said that this events occur eight years earlier than the main story begins and Thodin gets transported to the Cluster. It was cut in the "second version" of IWHS, nobody knows why. Even though John Dunsworth, who plays the Asteroid commander of the heretics at this scene, is credited, he made no appearance in the "second version". See more »

The best ever
22 December 1999 | by AstroMan-4See all my reviews

This series is simply the best ever to grace the TV screens of our little planet. It has the coolest characters, great special effects and shots, plus the most absolutely evil characters ever created, that put your typical bond villain to shame. The comedy is at times extremely dark, involving all sorts of gore and cool stuff like that. Eva Habermann as Zev is one of the most luscious looking characters ever, she was better than Xenia Seeberg (no disrespect to Xenia), Kai is so cool, and 790 is a love crazed robot head.

The supporting cast is also brilliant, especially the 2 mercenaries, who add an extra touch of dark humor. If you have a chance to see it, you must. You would never be able to live with yourself if you missed out. It easily gets a 43,245 out of 10 from me.
