C'est tres, tres bien!!!
16 September 2001 | by beedebeeSee all my reviews

A fine French animated series that's now almost twenty years old. I was glued to the screen as a kid but, seeing it again I must say that it has withstood the test of time. Special mention must go to the design of the backgrounds and spaceships, they look excellent. The music too, it wouldn't look out of place in a movie...

The last couple of episodes tell about a great war between Omega and all powerful humanoids, a big Star Wars type ending to the series. Watch it - or buy it on DVD (only in French though...)
