I only started watching Adromeda because I promised someone I'd try. I thought it was ridiculous. But - maybe it's because I fell in love with Rommie; maybe it's because I was amused by Harper; maybe it's because I missed Star Trek - for some reason, I watched another episode, and then another, and then.. well, at some point I found myself out of episodes after the season 5 finale.
I don't know if anyone else is as easily addicted to a show as I am, but if you are, please watch out for Andromeda. Some great characters and an inventive storyline will make it very hard to stop. The only bad thing about this show is the captain's bad hairdo.
