All I can say is… wow! I loved the TV series, and wished they had run far longer than 11 shows. I bought the DVD’s as soon as they were available. I like the fact that Joss Wheaton focused on the character interaction rather than the special effects (come to think of it, that’s why I like the new Battlestar Galatica). I like the special effects, but I’ve grown out of movies/shows that are only special effects (else I’d have loved Revenge of the Sith). I really like the fact there was humor thrown in everywhere, even when the situation was dire. You do have to listen really well to what everyone says, as those are the funniest remarks.
About the only thing that I didn’t like is the ‘unreal’ saves. It reminds me of some of the writings of Terry Brooks. Sorta like… "Things can’t get worse, things get worse, things can’t get worse, things get worse, poof, we made it through with no problems." There are some surprises, but the ending does get a little bit out there…
Hopefully, there will be more movies in this series, or that they will revive the TV series..
