TheShahFour seasons and a 4 part miniseries.
I'll most likely buy it, since it's only what… 2 seasons?
The 2nd and 3rd series are where it really takes off. I'm currently watching the final episode… Dragging it out :(
Man I was SOOOOOo pissed off when it was finally cancelled, especially since the piece of excrement that replaced it in the timeslot here was “America's top model” lol!
The last episode was beautifully ironically named “Bad timing” and the two main characters get killed by a strafing fighter that comes out of nowhere, with the big words “To be continued” at the end.
All so gloriously ironic in the context of the cancellation, and yet completely unintentional since that was all done before they knew :)
-I totally ignored the show for the first 3 years it was on. I only got into it when I was doing a lot of painting in the loungeroom and they were running marathons of it on cable. Got me hooked ^^
bravo1102Yeah, the twilight zone was often a little silly… Too often they followed the formula of the bad morality tale with now point. Lot's of cacophemistic fantasy/horror morality tales. Very well done, but it was a bad formula to keep on following- sure, have things turn out weird or horrible for someone, but don't give as the fatuous “punishment” justification for it!
3. The Outer Limits. This was the Science Fiction series not The Twilight Zone which often strayed into horror and suspense kind of like many episodes of Alfred Hitchcock presents. Nearly every Stephen King and Clive barker novel owes itself to an Outer Limits episode. lol!
4. Babylon 5. It only makes sense if you see the last season and the two post season movies first then you realize how great a story it is.
The Outer Limits was better .
Babylon 5… throughout it was so stiff and plotted. Many of the actors came straight from Days of Our Lives and it showed. I bet most of the cameramen, directors and set designers did as well… I did like the pseudo religious stuff with all the “Early Ones” and the good and evil battles etc, the political stuff was well writen too. That stuff was good. It was just a pity they didn't have a better crew that could have given it a more cinematic feel. :(
