Doctor Who and Battlestar Galactica have both shown that a classic Sci-FI series can be 're-imagined' for a new generation and I think Star Cops is an excellent candidate for the next one.
Well conceived, intelligent, witty scripts and some excellent acting both dramatic and comic all come together to make for a very enjoyable 9 episodes. And with 3 episodes and extras (including a writer commentary) on each disk this is ideal for renting where you only get a few disks at a time.
A shame that only one series was ever made. The dwindling ratings (Monday nights in summer) and high production costs (all that floating about in weightless environments) must have guaranteed a premature end. This just makes the series feel fresh and dynamic as the relationships between the characters are in constant flux. If you like intelligent Sci-Fi you should buy or rent it now.
