Yes folks.....Andromeda may be cancelled due to the pull out of it's major production company....unless the Sci fi Channel finds another backer.

Well at least Lexa Doig may be free to star on her hubby's (Michael Shanks) show...
I hope it will be this season, weather Andromeda sees a 5th season or concludes this season.

no, she hasn't. i read somewhere that they were thinking about having her as Reese, but due to some problems with her filming Andromeda at the same time, she couldn't do it. i'm glad she wasn't Reese. lol she's really cool as Rommie. basically the only character in Andromeda that i really enjoy seeing on the show. i wouldn't really care if it got cancelled or not lol.

Hey! What about Harper? :p I'd much rather see Gordon Michael Woolvett on Stargate than Lexa, and not just because he's cute. ;)

What about Tyr? He growls you know.

This news is not a surprise - I gave up with Andromeda a long time ago, right about when it became what we all predicted it would: Hercules in Space. It went from being pretty good, if cheesy and moralising to... well, rubbish.

Pity though, I'll miss the whole Tyr/Harper and or Tyr/Beka stuff.

Sounds like Mutant X is probably gone for sure, Andromeda is on life support. Here's some articles.

http://www.syfyportal.com/article.php?id=1358

http://filmforce.ign.com/articles/509/509036p1.html


There is apparently litigation over Can West/Fireworks yanking its financial support for Andromeda so who knows what will happen. It would seem unlikely that Scifi would pick up the financial slack....they're pretty heavily committed to Battlestar Galactica and Atlantis. Everything is in limbo at this point..... That has to be difficult for the cast and crew who could be out looking for work if they knew for sure.

While I stopped watching Mutant X after the first season and Andromeda (on a regular basis) after the second season, I know there are still fans of both shows out there and you always hate to see things end like this. I read somewhere that they filmed two different endings for Andromeda's final season 4 episode (because they weren't sure they were coming back for season 5 at the time). I wonder which one they'll show.

I really liked Lexa *and* Gordon Woolvett! :) Would love to see them show up in guest roles on SG-1 or Atlantis. Heck, if this had happened earlier I think Lexa could have had a good shot at the part of Teyla. She has that exotic look.

well, yeah, he's nice too. cute, funny, smart. you don't really see him all that much and i get lost with what he's saying alot (simple minded me, yes), and sometimes he can be a tad bit annoying.

so Rommie and Harper are cool. and together very cute :D lol.

hahaha just what i thought from the start. but i kept on watching it... some episodes weren't that bad. whenever i watch Andromeda, i yell at the tv for Dylan to die, and i predict who he's gonna sleep with lol.

last night on Andromeda there was Dan Shea (Sgt. Siler) on for about... 3 or 4 minutes. he said a few things, killed some guy, got his ass kicked, took a hostage, then ran away, got shot out an airlock. he lasted longer then the last time i saw him on an episode. he was a guard in one episode and said 4 or 5 words then got his ass kicked.

also a while ago i turned on Andromeda and i saw Peter Deluise and Ann-Marie Loder together. they were playing these locals who helped them out. they were saying goodbye and Peter and Ann were all kissy and lovey dove. it was sweet.

also in the episode last night there was that guy who played that mean Jaffa who was hitting Teal'c in Redemption pt 1 or 2. or both... probably saw someone else, but i forget lol.

i hadn't heard about it dying now, although i know next season was to be its last anyway.

andromeda stared out horrible (the crew were so cheesy it was a relief when they were all killed off in the premiere), then got better...then once tyr left, yep it turned into hercules in space, aka that kevin sorbo adoration society.

it's become very hit and miss and, to me, much worse with tyr gone and replaced by a cheap immitation of iolaus.

Andromeda has always been kind of a take it or leave it show for me. It's one of those shows that if I'm home I'll watch it but I won't go out of my way to see it and I don't set my VCR or anything. I mostly watched it because I loved Tyr and Harper but then Try left and now there's one less reason to watch that show.

I have to make an exception to what I just wrote to say that I did go out of my way to watch the episodes that Michael Shanks, Chris Judge, and James Marsters appeared in. James Marsters...mmm...uh yeah, anyway that man even looks good with a shaved head but I digress.

When Tyr left? Try when Sorbo started calling the shots back in Season 2, my god I hate that man so much....

Well I think firing Robert Hewitt Wolfe was the first step to oblivion. The show wasn't perfect in the first season but it had some interesting supporting characters and the story arc had potential. After Wolfe left it became all about the Dylan/Sorbo. Every babe he came across fell in love with him. Tyr was wussified, Rev Bem was gone, Trance was spouting dialogue even Oma couldn't understand, Harper became babe-ogler guy, Rommie was still okay but wasn't used much. I watched the episode where Rhade was introduced (replacing Tyr) and I found him rather boring. To top it off they brought Tyr back only to turn him into a mustache-twirling villain. It was a mess.

I never watched Hercules that much but when I did Sorbo seemed perfect in that part. It amazes me how much I dislike him on Andromeda but I do.

BTW, word is that the last few episodes of season 4 are decent, getting back to the Magog/worldship story. "Symmetry of Imperfection" airs this Friday on Scifi and is supposed to be a good Rommie episode.

Skydiver
May 3rd, 2004, 10:27 AM
sorbo is definitely not worth hating, but i used to watch teh show to watch the characters....ALL of them. now every single plot/story revolved around dylan somehow, just like it did in Hercules.

And i seem to recall back in hercules that it got old after a while, sorbo got burned out and wanted/needed time off and it was left to the supporting characters to carry the show.

I used to like bekka, but she's been turned into the stereotypical femme fatale, harper adn trance are the only things worth watching.

if it's died, well it'll be a mercy killing for me, which is also what i say about enterprise

If you hate him that much, you're gonna hate the character and actor playing him even more after you see the Dissonant Interval 1 - he's some sorta Oma-Like-Being. The alpha and omega of the universe you could say.

That about sums it up. I still watch Andromeda because I like some of the characters (i.e. Rommie, Trace, and Rhade). But, it has turned into "Hercules in Space", and it really didn't have to. Makes me like Kevin Sorbo ever less.

So, if they cancel it, let's hope Lexa Doig can do something else...

Like guest on Stargate!!!

I don't mind seeing the show cancelled because it has be on a downward slide. It started as a show that had potential. It looked like the would take a page from SG1 and use continuity to make the show better, but instead they just dance around real continuity and only use it when it suits them.

The thing that worries me is the disturbing trend in SciFi. This will likely be the last year for Andromeda, Mutant X, Buffy, Angel, maybe Enterprise and probably only one more year of SG1.

The SciFi future is looking pretty thin. Battlestar Galactica and Atlantis are the only new shows I see coming out. I hope networks start bulking this up soon. Maybe remake some more golden oldies like Buck Rogers.

Supreme Commander Thor

Can't say that I am surprised if it does end up being cancelled. I actually watched an episode last week... the one where a chick whose name I cant remember gets caught in a maze that surrounds a planet and cant get out while Hercules sends her a message and says something like serves you right bonehead for tricking me...

yeah, I will admit that the women were pretty good looking but that aint enough to make even an Asgard like me (whose race hasn't gone on a date for centuries) watch that show again...

Well, at least we still got the best ships out there... and BTW, any class of our ships would destroy the Andromeda... They dont deserve another season! lol

I really liked Andromeda at first but lost interest after the second season. When it started showing on Sci-Fi I tried to get back into it but I'm completely lost now, so I guess I wouldn't be too sad if it got cancelled, at least I wouldn't be as upset as I was when they axed Farscape. When do you think Sci-Fi will start showing Andromeda reruns (if they haven't already?).

JakeDeuxPointZero
May 6th, 2004, 09:18 PM

That would be the same chick who played the woman in the season 7 ep with Jonas... strangely similar parts, although the stories were different...

Personally, I just recently started watching the new eps on SciFi (I wanted to try it out before, but could never figure out when the eps aired), and I like it. I really want them to start showing reruns soon (perhaps an Andromeda Tuesday like Stargate Monday?...) so I can catch up. Personally, I definitely don't want it to get cancelled.

Also... some people have commented on Enterprise... personally, I'm hoping SciFi will pick the show up if UPN wants to cancel it and then syndicate it like they've done with some of their other shows, too.

ok i watch andromeda every now and tehn and think its pretty cool but i dont watch it enough to know everything. so i have a question for someone that knows more. i was watching tonight and they keep talking about the crew but the only people on the ship are the main cast so what crew are they talking about?

JakeDeuxPointZero
May 7th, 2004, 06:38 PM
Whoa... I was only going to ask the EXACT SAME question eventually... really cool. As far as I can tell, they have a crew (didn't someone say more than 400?), it's just that the show focuses on the senior staff... even more so than any Trek series.

spg_1983
May 7th, 2004, 06:55 PM

JakeDeuxPointZero
May 7th, 2004, 06:59 PM
Nope... I haven't seen an episode yet (I've only seen like 4, though) that shows more than a glimpse of crew... I think those two with the blond woman (see... I don't even know her name yet...) at the beginning may have been crew members.

It would appear that Rommie dies first in the finale...by exploding after a hit from a Magog weapon. Becka and Harper with Ryade are killed and eaten off camera from a Magog onslaught.....and Trance does a suicide run on Andromeda and blows up the MWS....



Dylan apparently survives to reset events to bring them back next season..




At least there is a possibility of a come back.

Well, interesting, I guess if the show doesn't come back then it ends with everyone dead except Dylan. Although since it appears Beka, Harper and Rhade are killed off-camera they may not really be dead.

If Andromeda does get a fifth season they can literally remake the show into anything they want, letting Dylan change places with his self from four years ago and start over. Or they can just pick up the pieces with whoever miraculously survives and move on.

Guess they would get to pick the cast members they want to keep (if any) and jettison the rest. Although if seems like they'd have to keep Lexa, she does play the ship after all. ;)

I think the second Michael Shanks episode ("Day of Judgement, Day of Wrath") showed crew, but I wasn't sure, as I couldn't tell the two ships in it apart.

(For the record, I liked the first Michael Shanks episode ("Star-Crossed") well enough but thought the second one was awful. And I bailed out of the episode we're talking about here after five minutes.)

Bottom line: I can't tell either.

Champos
May 12th, 2004, 06:19 PM
In the beginning i.e. before the big war thing where Andromeda got frozen in time, back then they definitely had a big crew of 400 or so. Since then I've never really seen anyone though. I know they have various androids around who do maintenance and presumably clean and generally just walk around aimlessly, but I'm not really sure about the crew. You'd imagine they would though, since they've apparently rebuilt their Commonwealth thing and they've presumably got a fair few crews to choose from and at the end of the day it is quite a big ship.
The end answer though, I don't know.

Generally, it's a descendant of Rhade's, except for one episode where they showed what it might have been like if Rhade had survived instead of Hunt.
When you say the change in Trance, do you mean the weird powers thing, or the physical? The physical happened in the last season sometime I think (Trance exchanged places with a future version of her self so as to prevent bad things from happening). The powers thing has been there from the beginning, I think, it just was never really shown much.

I'm happy for the fans, but i stopped watching yonks ago - mid S2 I think.

ok i watch andromeda every now and tehn and think its pretty cool but i dont watch it enough to know everything. so i have a question for someone that knows more. i was watching tonight and they keep talking about the crew but the only people on the ship are the main cast so what crew are they talking about?

Ever since they found the remnants of the Commonwealth (on Terra Zed I think it was), including Rhade's descendent, they have had a full crew. But you only get to see various extras running around the ship in a few episodes.

Yes but did the show ever say exactly what Trance is?

I seem to remember hearing something from the last TV series about how she had been created by someone or something to act as a bridge between time and space, kind of a Messiah-like figure who'd save the world

Dillon is the Messiah-like figure, Trance is "the light" the way the abyss is the infinite darkness. And she is a watcher of sorts, helping to guide the messiah (of sorts) on the right path. But I missed two eps this season so I'm not sure if that changed seeing as they have a habit of changing fundamental elements of that show from time to time.

Ok, to end the What or Who is Trance debate.

Trance is from a species of "people" who are very old - billions of years older than any other of the races. She and her "people" are AVATARS of stars (suns) - Trance is particularly an avatar of our sun.

However, here is the kicker, she and her people can see all possible possibilities in the universe(s). They are here, there, and everywhere to bring light to the darkness.

I've seen it. Dylan is a god/angel-figure. Utopia is found. Love Happens. Things get broken. Blah, blah, blah. Wait till you see the second part. They are never going to be able to explain away what ocurrs when they come back next season. Kudo's to them if they can make it believable. I've placed a precis of the two ep's somewhere, I just can't find them; that or I'm too darn lazy to look - you pick.

DID anyone else think that finale sucked. I could not believe the crew was wiped out by the magog. It was sad to see dylan retreating thru the route of ages. When are the good guys gonna get to win the big fights. It seems as if their is no hope of the universe getting better. Trance having to sacrifice herself to stop the worldship. The commonwealth turning on dylan. maybe hopeful the writers will bring back the vedrans to help dylan save the galaxy. IT is time dylan gets more allies to fight the magog. hopefully next year will be better.

Yeah, it wasn't the best. I'm not a faithful Andromeda viewer by any means. I think I've watced my 4 episodes this season including the 2-part season finale. Someone in another thread pointed out that it started turning into Hercules in space and that pinpoints it exactly for me. Dylan's a messiah or something only he can save everything....blah blah blah woo hoo. I do like aspects of the show though. Like most of the crew. It just seems like it's turned into the Dylan Hunt show.

For the record, I really enjoyed the season finale. Season four was my favorite season. I had kind of given it up after Try left and it turned dark on us all, but it did get much better. As for season five, I think picking up the next season will be rather easy...

Remember when Trance traded places with her future self? I'm sure that's the plot device that will be used to reset the story line and bring back all of the characters. I'm looking forward to it.

As for "Hercules in Space", I liked Hercules and Kevin is very easy on the eyes. It's all about fantasy anyway - I can live with it.

May 23rd, 2004, 05:54 PM
I thought part two was great. It seemed as if we were going to get the standard "hero pulls the fat out of the fire at the last minute and saved the universe" senerio which would have been unimaginative to say the least. In this one, everybody dies which is how it sometimes works in real life. To quote my favorite physician, Dr. Leonard McCoy, "It has been my experience that evil often wins unless good is very, very strong." The good guys lose sometimes.

What I like about this ending is that there is hope at the end and maybe, just maybe there is a second chance to make it all right. After all, that's what we all want isn't it - a second chance?

For the record, I really enjoyed the season finale.

For the most part it was really good, up until the last 10 minutes. Then it just kind of ended. Kind of like the old Outer Limits did. It was like, okay, times up, let's stop.

Season 4 did start out a bit slow, wasn't sure if I was going to be able to get into it, but once they brought in Rhade as a counterpart to Dylan's "everything's going to work out" philosophy, it picked up momentum. Loved the 2 parter with Tyr too.

Just didn't feel quite satisfied with the finale, but will definitely tune in to the beginning of S5 to see how they fix it.

if they do that...it just takes away from the "believability" of the show. it's like what's been discussed in the "acension good or bad thread" somewhere in another area. personally i think "rewinding" puts too much comfort in a show...oh look we know they're never going to do this blah blah blah...

Can someone tell me what was up with the trance-plant thingy? Also, I actually kind of liked the two-parter, but it would have been much better as as Series Finale, since I'm sure they'll use the reset button. The operatic music was a nice touch.

Phil

The plant thingy that Trance holds onto like its her baby is a BONSAI tree - specifically a shimpaku, with a kick. It is from a different time for a different time. If the tree goes, so does the universe - as Trance explained it once.

Its been around since season 2, but this new and improved Trance was the one to tell Dylan to meaning behind it. Apprently, it carries in it the hope of peace. Blah blah blah.

Once again, I show just how much television I watch on saturdays. Say hello to "Sci-Fi Geek Extraordinaire" everyone.

I kind of like the idea. I got to see almost all the past Stargate eps thanks to Scifi's monday night lineup. I'd hope they would do it for each day. Friday being new episodes of Andromeda, SG-1, and SG-A. Monday being SG-1, Tuesday Andromeda, then fill in Wed, and Thurs with 2 other shows, not quite sure what though.

keshou
July 23rd, 2004, 06:47 AM
If true, then I'm happy for the original creator of the show (Robert Hewitt Wolfe) and the original writers of seasons 1-2 since I assume this means they'll get royalties. They seem like great guys.

As a fan I gave up on the show after the big changes they made in season 2. I've watched the occasional odd episode here and there but the chance of rewatching the show from the beginning doesn't do much for me because I'm afraid it will just remind me of the lost potential of that show.

Still, I'm always in favor of the scifi channel showing these type of series rather than the reality stuff so I hope it works out well. :)

That's when most of the other people that made it good left too.

Anyone could have made a better story, and one that makes sense. I mean they could have made the Commonwealth for the first 2-3 seasons then form it only to realize that most of the members are evil and a civil war breaks out until the show ends.

The first season or so is cheesy, but I think it's at a tolerable level. Then their main writer guy left and Sorbo pitched a hissy fit about storylines being "too complicated" and he wanted plots he could understand and... well, it was all downhill from there, IMO. The storylines are bad enough, but the music has become so painfully lame and pumped up that it actually distracts from the awfulness of the show itself.

Once in a while I tune in because I really like Harper/Gordon Michael Woolvett. Unfortunately, they're trying to turn his character into a one-joke cliche, but fortunately GMW is too clever and tricksy and manages to work in some fun stuff in spite of everything going on around (and to) him. I hear he ad-libs a lot of his lines. More power to him. :D

Rhade (AKA Camulus) is very pretty to look at, but again his character is a little predictibly shallow.

The eps with MS are actually kinda interesting, more so the first than the second and seeing the other SG-1 actors is kinda fun. I still need to see the ep with Dan Shea...

Speaking generally, though, you aren't missing anything and are probably better off if you don't watch it.

I saw quite a bit of Season 1,but missed some eps.I'd say that's a fair assessment,though ! :( (My kids thought Bek'a (SP?) was a Carter rip-off )

I think you're right,Shadow,as I don't think it's really worth sitting through the whole lot,just to see a handful of episodes,really !
I like the effects,and Lexa Doig/Andromeda ,but I actually find K.Sorbo a bit wooden,I'm afraid,and the scripts do seem "dumbed down" :(

With the new *Cough * Android "Pinkie",I think I probably won't watch next year. I'll concentrate on buying the eps I actually want to see. ;)

Thanks for the review and info,Shadow ! I appreciate good advice. :D

The eps with MS are actually kinda interesting, more so the first than the second and seeing the other SG-1 actors is kinda fun. I still need to see the ep with Dan Shea...

well, Dan Shea was in a couple episodes (that i saw). he was in one episode for about... a minute. he was sort of a solider for this planet they were on. of course, he got his ass kicked by Dylan. in another episode, he basically was the same thing with the same result.

Hasn't MS already played two characters on Andromeda?He was on the show twice, but he played the same character (or rather, some incarnation of the same character, ie avatars). Possible confusion can arise because in his first episode his character was called Gabriel (in addition to being the Balance of Judgement) but when he returned he decided he no longer wanted to be called Gabriel, and changed his name to Remiel.

In risk of bumping up a month-old thread...


I place the blame squarely on Michael Shanks and his hrmmm... "soilders" for this one
Leave it up to Shanks... to ruin the casting on his wife's show.

Maybe we're all being thrown off by the horrendous amount of pink she's wearing. It would be a fun twist if she were sarcastic, witty, had a dry sense of humor, and hated pink.

Couldn't the wardrobe be different than the one she was wearing, i mean, Lexa's avatar clothes look better than that :(
totally agree. I am not a very big andromeda fan, but I have always loved Lexa's outfits when I watched. The were classy / hot (if such a thing is possible)... The clothes she is wearing are so pathetic that she will be considered a joke. A complete and total joke.

The SciFi Channel already tried showing the X-Files with vertical stripping on Tuesday nights back in October '02. The episodes premiered with a 0.9 rating, and lasted one month. (Never had a rating higher than 0.9.)

Then the X-Files was pulled from Tuesday night rotation and consigned to either late afternoon, daytime (one day per month), or late late night rotation.

I don't think we know.

After the first and really after the 2nd season it went down hill, I stopped watching it because the cat lady was no longer a cat but really a god, and none of it made sense. I watch an episode when I can (like during the summer) and it didn't make sense at all, there are like 100 story lines going on at once.

Of course will all know that everyone will live happily ever after (at least for the time being... maybe not that happy either) because other-wise there wouldn't be the start of the season. It's just that of course it's Dylan because 'omg hes liek da mane of da show!!!111!'

Most of the episodes are quite crappy. There are those few that just rock. I watch it every now and then just incase.

Star-Crossed, All Too Human, Orborus (sp), Night Death and the Devil, Day of Judgement Day of Wrath, It's Hour Has Come At Last, The Dark Backward... some other ones too are cool.

They have these complicated episode titles that I just can't remember. They could start off like SG-1 and be like, 'Hathor, The Tomb, or Red Sky'. Two or three words. Not two or three SENTENCES :P

Actually....for me, not so such. Rats! I was hoping for something a little more dramatic picking up with Dylan meeting himself in the hallway and giving some explaination on what was happening. I guess they're going to drag that out through the first few episodes.

Erik Bloodaxe
September 28th, 2004, 10:54 PM
Spoilers in this message, of course. ;)








If you thought that was good watch the first and second seasons.

Sadly, after the most recent premiere, I'm inclined to agree. :(

Season 3 was mediocre after they changed the creative teams, and the new one wished to go after the "casual viewer" which turned out to be a detriment to the central plotline; Season 4, on the other hand, was an improvement, but that Season 5 premiere seems to foreshadow an undoing of that. None of what happened is even anything approaching explained, the "amazing" place that Dylan wound up is just a post-Apocalyptic version of his homeworld, the main bad guy is more annoying that Jar Jar Binks :P, Rhade himself has for some reason gotten in league w/ the bad guy, only to have Dylan just need to beat the crap out of him to get him to become good again, and overall just simply raised more questions rather than provide any sort of answers to what came before, and they weren't even thought-provoking questions at that. :S I was hoping the second part would lift it all up again, but then I saw that promo; it appears as though they're just repeating the same essential plot, only this time it's Beka going from inexplicably bad to good. Will it be that she has to be beaten up too? :rolleyes: Anyway, it's the final season, so I'll continue to watch and see how it ends and hope it manages to do another uphill swing in quality like it did during the latter part of Season 3 and 4, but the writing seems to be on the wall that the change in creative teams was the worst thing that happened to the series. :eek:

Of course, this was the same way I felt at the beginning of Season 3 and that attitude had changed by the end, so I really hope the direction reverses and that said change will very soon occur once again. :D

Hmms... I saw about 5 season 4 eps, tops, and yet I somehow get what's going on with this whole Route of Ages (how the heck has no one said "Route of Ages" in this thread yet?) thing... anyways, I own season 1 on DVD, so I've seen all of that, but now that SciFi's doing Andromeda Tuesday (which I had hoped for since they got the rights to the show), I can catch up without having to lay down another $150... which is good. But I think I understand enough to tell what's going on in season 5, and I like it. This show is actually a pretty decent sci-fi show, just not enough people know it exists or give it a chance... which means there's almost no chance of a spinoff, which is a bummer.

LordAnubis
September 30th, 2004, 08:34 PM
You know, I was watching Andromeda the other day, and it occurred to me halfway through the show: THIS SUCKS. The acting was awful, the effects sucked, the aliens made me laugh more than Babylon 5's aliens did (except the Drakh, Vorlons, and Shadow thingies). So, I tried to be objective and said, "I'll watch another episode to give it another chance." I watched another episode and it sucked even worse.

So, I asked my friend in another dorm if I could borrow his Andromeda DVDs. I watched 2 more and said, no more.

Does anyone really like Andromeda? If so, why? Is it just me, or does anyone else think this show needs to die painfully? BTW, was Gene Roddenberry really involved with it?

Earth: The Final Conflict wasn't all that bad. I actually enjoyed it at times, but this...no way. I couldnt watch another episode. I'd rather watch Lexx than this swill!

I have tried to watch episodes, but I don't believe I have ever gotten through a whole one. Not so much that I hated it, but I didn't really know who anyone was, what the general story behind it was, and just couldn't get into it.

I believe Sci-Fi channel is having Andromeda tuesdays, similiar to SG-1 mondays, where they play a bunch of episodes in a row. I may have to make myself sit through a couple of them and see if I can garner an opinion on the show...

The plant thingy that Trance holds onto like its her baby is a BONSAI tree - specifically a shimpaku, with a kick. It is from a different time for a different time. If the tree goes, so does the universe - as Trance explained it once.

Its been around since season 2, but this new and improved Trance was the one to tell Dylan to meaning behind it. Apprently, it carries in it the hope of peace. Blah blah blah.

Like EFC, I liked the first season but it went downhill from there. Sadly, I spent most episodes wishing Dylan died and Rhade had survived because he was just so much more interesting. Then I saw that one episode of him where he did survive. It was okay. Nothing brilliant.

Mostly I dislike Dylan, he strikes me (from what I've been able to stomach) as the atypical space hero guy who tries to be dark at times but just doesn't pull it off in a believable way. I don't much care for Kevin Sorbo anyway--never a huge Hercules fan--but the very concept of "dumbing down" any show will turn me off pronto. And last I checked, his intro on the show was a little stupid sounding. Never say "our adventures". It just ruins the suspended belief thing and rustles up memories of "chose your own adventure" books.

However, I did enjoy Tyr. I love his type, never can quite fully trust them because you never know when they will turn on you. I hope the actor finds a better job like JM found Nip/Tuck.

There's some first season ep, I can't remember the name, about Rommie's sister ship and the affair between her and her captain. While I could totally imagine Kirk getting it on with the avatar of the Enterprise (somewhat icky really), the actual episode was moving and so sad. That was good Andromeda. Aside from that Michael Shanks episode (wasn't as crazy about his return but it was fair), random appearances of actors I like (James Marsters!!! Spike!!!! :D ) there's nothing I've found memorable or even worth more than five minutes of viewing before I flip the channel.

Oh yeah--hate Harper. Probably the only person who does, but he just annoys me to death, he sounds way to contemporary to live in the future. Haven't really seen much of the other Rhade because I haven't watched in forever. Can't bear it.

One final thing--does anyone know when Andromeda takes place? I have never been able to figure that out. Somewhere I read the 25th century or something, but that doesn't make sense.

I seem to like to say things suck a lot lately. I'll try to be positive from now on....yeah right. :rolleyes:

The actor who played Tyr is now on a soap opera now, not sure which one though... I liked his character, although i didn't like how he left the show...

I always liked Hercules in a "unplug your brain" sorta way. Usually enough attractive ladies, sword fights, and other assorted mythic stuff to keep me happy for an hour. So, when Herc ended his run, and Sorbo was going to this new Roddenberry vehicle, I thought.........hey it might be good. I tried, I really did. I gave it my best shot that first season, but I just couldn't hang with it. I don't hate Andromeda, but it sure doesn't hold my interest.

Basically, IMO, as far as sci-fi goes, it sucks...and it sucks big time. I'm sorry to anyone who likes it, but it sucks. I'm not even sure Gene Rodenberry is really connected to it, or if his wife, Majel Barret, has something to do with it.

I think the only connection with Gene Roddenberry is that this was one of the show ideas that he had in his files before he passed away. Earth: The Final Conflict was the same way. Anyway, it was most likely Roddenberry's idea that has been developed by others in hopes (in my opinion anyway) to cash in on his name.

I liked the first couple seasons....not enough to tape them if i wasn't home or anything like that, but when i was home, i watched them.

Then as i understand it, Sorbo suddenly voiced the opinion that the show was too technical and too bound in 'hard' sf writing....and started demanding changes to scripts and stories to make them simpler and more friendly episodic stuff and generally being a real nag.

I don't know if that is true, but around s3 or so it really went downhill for me and i missed most of 3 and 4. I caught the final ep last season and was intrigued. I've watched the first 2 eps of this season in the new galaxy/universe/dimension and so far it's not bad.

And originally.....I was into it for the eye candy....lexa doig and laura betram...i'm not afraid to admit it! lol

Generally, overall the show is cheesy. So cheesy I can make nachos with it (mm... nachos). Some episodes aren't so bad. Some are actually good. But most, are total crap. I HATE Dylan, LOVE Harper, Rhade, Rommie, and used to love Trance. She was cute when she was purple, and after a while when she first became the furturistic Trance, but after a while she became too cryptic and confusin for me.

I haven't really seen much of Season 4. A few episodes here and there. Sort of fallen out of it. Seen some of it though and my impression was of Rhade/Harper...

Show overall sucks, hate Dylan, love Rhade, Harper, and Rommie.

I must be part of a minority. Somebody told me about this show about a year and a few months ago, and I wanted to check it out, so I got season 1 on DVD... although not on my money... I had to recover from some minor surgery and would be stuck on a couch for a week, so my parents said they'd buy me some TV Show DVD's... I chose this one, and I loved season 1. I had also seen some season 4... frankly, I don't know why I like this show. I just do. A personal opinion, I suppose... dunno. This new episode (I'm watching the rerun right now... I missed the original broadcast) is pretty good... I think this'll probably be a decent final season, but dunno.

I haven't seen the first episode for the new season yet. I'll try to catch it somewhere.

Hmm... the first part should be in syndication this week... at least, I'm pretty sure syndication is supposed to be a week behind.

Okay, I watched the season premiere, and got NOTHING out of it...

Well, except the fact that Rhade is quite yummy with the unshaven look. :P

Anyone DARE to explain?

Can you explain what happened in part 1?Simple and Fast, in part 1... He finds Camulus, err i mean, Rhade, and at first he dislikes him something about hope and faith, kind of stupid imo, then Rhade decides to be on Dylan's side again, then i forgot the rest...

... What I kind of sort of got from it was:

They both saw bright lights and ended up there on Tarn Vedra.

I don't really get it. It did a really big flyby for me.

While Rhade's reappearance was more confusing than playing 3D chess with checkers pieces on a Chinese checker board, Beka's was sadly predictable. Although I gotta admit, I didn't see the thing with Trance coming. I did hope Trance would look different when they found her, though. I just wish she hadn't gotten all amnesiatic on us.

Oh yes, i too did not like Trance having a touch of amnesia... But oh well, yay for Trance's new transformation, she looks more god-ess like, which i like :)
