My reaction
Synopsis: It’s retooled every few episodes, but usually involves two guys from the Battlestar Galactica hanging out on Earth
How I saw it: on video (rented from Netflix), over the past couple weeks
Concept: Eh. Basically, postponing the death of a bad show by making it worse.
Story: Terrible.
Characters: Terrible. From the modern professional woman who exists to look after children and do what the men tell her, to the experienced fleet commander who can’t think or make a decision without consulting an adolescent boy…
Dialog: Terrible.
Pacing: Indifferent.
Cinematography: Indifferent.
Special effects/design: Eh.
Acting: Eh. To be fair, the actors don’t have much to work with.
Music: Bad.
Subjective Rating: 3/10 (Bad). It’s the kind of bad you can have a few good laughs watching, if you like that kind of thing.
Objective Rating: 0/10 1.2/4 (Bad).
