Quotes

Cpl. Jeff Gossard: [after flying through a cavern] I can't decide if you're the best pilot I've ever seen, or just completely out of your mind.
Lt. Carmen Ibanez: A little of both.

What can I say?
23 February 2002 | by khhsdudeSee all my reviews

I just can't get enough of this show. Saw it in syndication and it just blew me away. It does a good job creating the illusion of the war with the bugs. The music is what first grabbed by attention, and the excelent writing kept me there. Decent visuals with plot situations that did not seemed to be contrived. Good serises for kids, but also enjoyable by adults. Any chance the last few episodes will be made?
