Sci-fi lovers? Do not miss this!!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Odyssey 5: The Complete Series [DVD]  (DVD)
... why was this show cancelled? I don't get it. It's without any doubt one of the finest examples of adult science fiction. Each episode is packed with some of the most creative ideas you might expect. Really, I found each episode surprising, Manny_Coto_is_a_genius. Not to mention the characters, each of them with a detail defined personality. Dr. Kurt Mendel is, with his sarcastic attitude, undoubtedly one of the greatest tv show character you'll ever find. And what about Peter Weller, impeccable as the Texan tough space commander Taggart. A unique series, believe me. Too bad we'll never get to see how it ends. Damn those idiots who cancelled it.

i agree with your comments,this is one of many shows cancelled before the finale,and then put out on dvd.could you imagine jk rowlings releasing a harry potter book,with the last 4 chapters missing? as much as i loved this show,releasing it on dvd unfinnished,is a con.

I agree 100%. This was a series which looked as if it was going to develop a very good story-line but Sci-Fi fans don't count; well unless they're 18-49 year old American Males, so the series was cancelled. But how can we rely upon a nation who elected George W. Bush, who shouted "Amigo, Amigo" at the Italian President, had Dan Quayle as Vice-President, he commented after visiting a Latin American country it was a shame he didn't study Latin harder at school so he could converse with those people, and last but not least, Sarah Palin who said after the North Korean attack on the South Koreans that "We have to support our North Korean allies". Good God and these people decide the fate of some very good series! What chance do they have?
