The original mini-series was a TV classic. Such a realistic depiction of what a non-hostile alien takeover could be like. Good acting, ok effects (for
the time), and some great writing. (except for the very end bit)
The TV series (first one)..eh, not so much.
I had high hopes for the remake. At first, it was ok, but the more we got to see the alien queen, the better it got, she was PERFECT to fill Diana's
I had high hopes the new series would get serious, and do something with the story line, but I guess it just wasn't meant to be.
I think they were, at the end, with that secret organization, and the actor who played in the original (and Beastmaster, in the 80's). Too bad they
didn't get there sooner.
Thing is, it was doing well enough to warrant coming back, but these days, if it isn't a bona-fide hit out of the gate, it's no dice it seems.
