The story does get a little disjointed through the season, which is perhaps where it fell down. With the story thats being told here it needed a more linear style of story telling. But it does get better towards the end, the only problem is the cliff hanger ending, which opened up a whole new realm of possibility, was never continued.
The special effects are good for television and the music gives it a true military feel.
So far its only available on region 1 and I dont think there will be enough demand to warrant a region 2 release, so its a pretty safe bet buying it. Despite its flaws, this is quality stuff, if you liked Starship Troopers you will like this.
