Well Put. And I was wrong-it <I>was</I>Fox Television, I was confused because it followed the other networks' tendency to think of L.A. as the centre of the damned universe...
They should have had a Canadian outfit do it, the budget would've been smaller, but there would have at least been decent writing, rather than a collection of half-assed fills packed around a weak skeleton.
The original series had strong writing, direction, and, acting-this made the cheezy special effects not matter at all.
I do have to disagree on one point, though, Sarah- it wasn't <I>X-Files</I> style cinematography and layout, it was <I>Miami Vice</I> style, with hints of <I>Terminator</I> ("what do we do here?" hack asks, "I dunno, throw in a car chase, it works in every other show we've done!" the other hack replies...)I'm convinced that Fox can't do anything involving high-grade sci-fi for any length of time. (Example: <I>Space:Above and Beyond</I> lasted a season, and didn't have time to get stupid, while <I>Dark Angel</I> started sucking after the first season ended, and, <I>The X-Files</I> has been wildly inconsistent since they made the movie. Thank god <I>Andromeda</I> is on syndication, it's been getting better and better...) If someone were to make <I>Ceph:Project Squidship</I> as a series, I would hope they'd get the outfit that does <I>Lexx</I>, otherwise... Ick, they'd make it pathetic.<P>------------------
