Sticking with it makes it suck a lot less
13 October 2007 | by silent_pawsSee all my reviews

I have seen all the episodes so far, and to be honest I can see them cancelling it at the end of the season - but only because they are going to have to rehash lame ideas all over again.

Personally I think it has got a lot better, and the last two episodes on Mongo at least tried to build the tension. Flash is good, Dale et al really need acting lessons, but overall unless they improve the scripts I can't see it continuing.

If you come to this thinking Queen, Buster Crabbe, and camp action, then you will be disappointed (though the bad acting is a real throwback). Watch the later episodes with an open mind (especially the one on the Dactyls), and it will probably make you want to watch it again.
