Bad: It quickly becomes obvious that we're not exactly talking Peter Jackson budgets or production values, especially when watching the Blu-Ray version. (In the future, Distressed Flat-Black Is The New Black.) Overacting is part of the panache here, but even at that the scenery-chewing can get irritating at times. Soundtrack is great, but can be overbearing at times. ONLY TWELVE EPISODES - sigh.
Ugly: The aforementioned weak stories are REALLY bad.
Bottom line: This collection isn't for everyone. Expect PG-13 to soft-R levels of unabashedly gratuitous language, sex and violence, along with bizarre, often-incomprehensible plots. Avant-garde SF fans will love it. Fundamentalists and pop-music fans will run screaming from it. If you're somewhere between these extremes, you owe it to your immortal soul to give this a try. Five stars, and by Ghordjazz they'd better make more.
It should have been animated -- that would have been a much better alternative to the horrible CG.

La calificación de 3 estrellas es debido a mi gusto personal por estos motivos, pero se debe reconocer que la calidad de la serie es inconsistente.
