    I vaguely remembered this series growing up, particularly the dark tone (the 80’s cool suits helped.) I decided to rewatch the series once I found out it was getting a new adaptation al’a Battlestar Galactica, and I was pleasantly surprised.

    The first few episodes are okay, Abyss and A Shot in the Dark being the stand outs. I feel the show really hits its stride later in the series when they realized they may not get a second season and decided to go all out. My personal favorites being Freedom One and Retribution II.

    I gotta say, those action scenes were great, not just for 80’s TV. You got a sense of chaos and action from them. I remember watching The Eden Road and being kind of shocked by the scene where they get attacked by the “zombie” biodreads, particularly how one of the heroes grabbed one and, not sure how to say it, slit his throat.

    I enjoyed your article (couple of grammar errors) and look forward to reading more.
