So in the beginning I was super hesitant to give this a shot due to the low-ish ratings. OMFG I am so freaking happy that I forged ahead anyways. Seriously, this show is SO damn underrated I am almost offended. Forreal...what is wrong with you people?
It has a superbly woven mastery to it that you just do not find in a lot of shows, and I love a good sci-fi. Did I mention ACTION PACKED TO THE HILT?!! I know it is a remake so this opinion is based solely on this reboot. Are there a few corny moments that happen... yes.
Will all be forgiven considering you will be hanging off the edge of your seat more than once? Hell yes. I so respect a well thought out, cohesive story with believable characters more than I detest any other flaws I came across. The musical scores were simply amazing and so well timed, seriously bravo. It gave me a James Bond-esque vibe and I watched every single James Bond movie as a kid, so perhaps I am slightly biased. The character designs/set/costume were different and intriguing.
Best part? As an adult, I didn't feel like my senses were being dulled with fluffy filler or immature moments that I couldn't relate to.
Cons: The ship designs could have been a bit more "futuristic", but then again I believe the original story was written in the 70's/80's - (it was so much action that after a while I didn't even care). The alien races were all a bit too "humanoid" and they could have done better than just changing skin color, although the creativity with the worldbuilding (to me) offsets this. I wont spoil it, but the "miracle" that happens at the end might make you do an epic eyeroll.
I give this a 10 due to the fact I was literally drawn into the story like I haven't been in ages, and for someone who is not easily impressed that is priceless.
What did you think of this review?
