All in all, it was cheesy, silly, had a lot of action, and I guess I mentioned all the hot babes. Okay, the only reason anyone would watch this is for the babes, but, that certainly sets it above all the equally stupid whows without hot babes, so there you go.
The best innovation this show had was that all the bad guys didn't have to miss the good guys all the time when firing hail after hail of energy blasts at them from all angles. The good guys (good girls, actually) had personal energy shields that would deplete over time and only then would you really have to duck every shot or hope they still missed you all day long. (Why on earth hasn't every sci fi action series snaked this idea and run with it, too?)
Anyway, there is a fair amount of humor that really works and some actual hard-core sci fi here and there. Mostly it was all about the action, though. Cheesy villians more often than not, but the over-arching enemy presence throughout was a race of huge, crazy-looking robots that ruled the surface of Earth in the far future, which were pretty cool, but not around in every episode.
Eventually, as the story went from half-hour shows to hour-longs, the writing got better, or maybe there was more room for story when the action quotient didn't have to be jacked up so high. Don't get me wrong, this was no epic story and it was never going to be, even though it got cancelled before its time (there is quite a cult following and more episodes were written and offered up on some website at some point, though never actually filmed).
If it comes out at a decent price for your budget, and you're into a fast-paced, light-weight sci fi romp, grab it up. Oh yeah, the main characters are athletic female actors who have all shown up in higher-profile projects since this and all fall into the category of "hot" . . . but that's actually not the best reason to watch.

A little campy, but still good fun. Certainly aimed at the guys, but if you like anything sci-fi its interesting. And there is a story that develops eventually.Published 6 months ago by Anthony C. Howe
