How I saw it: online (streaming from Netflix), over the past month
Special effects/design: Bad.
Acting: Bad. Kevin Sorbo: Master of the Exasperated Sigh.
Music: Bad. All I’ve got to say is, dude really liked Jurassic Park.
Subjective Rating: 6/10 (Okay). Very formulaic, and often painfully bad, but, with the exception of two or three episodes, it’s always fun to watch anyway. And of course it kicks off Xena: Warrior Princess.
Objective Rating: 1.3/4 (Bad).
