Brilliant! Departed from the books in some significant ways, but stood well on its own merits. Great acting (superb for a Science Fiction show on SyFy), well written, and very nice special effects. Cancelled not because of low ratings, but because the channel it was on wanted cheaper shows. Well worth a watch.
One of my favorite shows of all time. Whimsical and dark, absurd and serious, and tragically romantic. I adore all of the main characters and found myself really rooting for them. I strongly recommend this show to anyone with a sense of humor. It ended too soon, but the last episode has a quick epilogue that ties things up in a happy little bow. Give it a chance!
