For those that want to see a good character driven, world based sci-fi mini-series this is right up their alley. As long as you don't mind some pretty significant holes in the story-line and some pretty cheap (80's) special effects you will be well pleased.

I remember seeing the movie when it originally aired and my purchasing it brought back a lot of good memories from my childhood. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
