Great! - or is it?

Yes, this show is great! It's got an intoxicating story, well-formed characters and some really nice special effects. Just good, old-style Sci-Fi by Gene Roddenberry (or at least based on one of his ideas).


Yet... The story is really good, it's just... sometimes it isn't 100% consistent... Maybe because they fired Robert Hewitt Wolfe after half of Season 2 and made the whole thing more "episodic". No wonder you get inconsistencies that way...


But still -- almost totally intoxicating story, great characters, special effects, good old-style Sci-Fi.


Yet... Sometimes the characters seem a bit too freaked out - so freaked out, they get inconsistent as well. But what do you expect if you fire the main story writer...


But still -- almost totally intoxicating story, almost great characters, special effects, good old-style Sci-Fi.


Yet... If there wasn't this darn last season. I don't know, but is there any other series that was able to spoil all the good stuff they did in - how many? - FOUR seasons, all within their last one? Well, I don't know any...


But, well, you don't have to watch that one (and I thoroughly do recommend you not to do that).


So, what remains are those episodes that are consistent, with the characters drawn perfectly, special effects - good old Sci-Fi... Fortunately there are enough of them to make the show worth watching.


So my conclusion: Yes, definitely a good show - as long as you ignore those inconsistencies after the midst of season 2 and omit the last season. But that's surely no more than 3 stars of 5.
