This cult sci-fi tv series was made by Stephen Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment in 1994 and arrives on
in the UK on 28th May 2012.
In the year 2192 Earth has been rendered inhospitable by pollution and war. Surviving humans now live in various space stations but an infection known as “The Syndrome” leaves many stricken.
A rogue group of survivors head to a seemingly habitable planet and attempt to begin a new life…….but not all is as it seems.
The cast includes Clancy Brown and Debrah Farentino with appearances by Terry O’Quinn and Virginia Madsen but with little background the viewer is thrust into what feels like an already ongoing story. The special effects are very poor, looking more like something from a sixties sci-fi show instead of a nineties one.
This 22 episode box-set will only appeal to those who are already fans of the show and fondly remember it although this could be a case of childhood memories being sullied.
Ric’s Rating: Dodgy.
