Storyline

Five years into the future, five Odyssey astronauts and a NASA technician are setting up NASA's latest high tech satellite just outside of Earth's orbit. The five are: Chuck Taggart - a charismatic authoritative and stoic mission commander and former ace pilot, Kurt Mendel - a likable pompous horny quip-prone British science author and NASA's special celebrity guest on the flight who actually does know a lot about science and can be brave and cunning despite claiming otherwise, Neil Taggart - Chuck's young adult son and genuine computer expert, Sarah Forbes - a popular news anchor and TV reporter who's there to make an exclusive piece about the mission, and Angela Perry - Chuck's experienced co-pilot who's father is a powerful senator. Everything is going fine until the Earth is suddenly caught on fire and then implodes for no apparent reason. This horrifying mysterious event damages the crew's shuttle, which leads to the death of the technician and also leaves Angela badly hurt and ...

Quotes

[V.O. intro from every episode except pilot]
Chuck Taggart: We saw the Earth destroyed, and in a heartbeat everything and everyone we knew was gone. There were five of us, the crew of the space shuttle Odyssey, and we were the only survivors. A mysterious being who called himself The Seeker rescued us and sent us back in time. And now we have five years to live over, five years to discover who or what destroyed the Earth, five years to stop it from happening again.

Finally! a great sci-fi series
15 October 2004 | by emperor_spongebobSee all my reviews

I had missed this when it first came out, but luckily they just re-ran the first 17 episodes on-demand. Sucked em all down in a week and I still want more. Some of the best acting I've seen in a series (not just sci-fi either) in a long time. Especially Weller. Is this "Buckaroo Banzai Grows Up" ?? They should have won an Emmy for episode 6....this is the one where they all start re-experiencing the worst thing that ever happened...so well done (I don't cry at much...) The mystery surrounding the adversaries is so well developed, I find myself guessing something different after each episode. Anyway, it looks like Showtime is extending the run!! New episodes on Sunday nite (10-18-04)Don't miss it!!!
