I love this show. I remember the first time I saw Trance, enjoying seeing Kevin Sorbo agian after Hercules ended, seeing a new scifi show that had so much potential.
Unfortunatly, the potential wasn't lived up to. Instead of the show ending with a new Commonwealth, it ended with a bunch of nonsense and Kevin Sorbo yelling "Five Years!".
In the beginning, Andromeda had continuity. Things added up and payed off. But the series finale felt rushed. The events from the season that we thought would go somewhere went nowhere. It all felt rushed and just left me saying "huh?".
The worst part is that it could have been better. The powers that be fired Robert Hewitt Wolfe so that they could create episodic stories with little continuity with Dylan Hunt at the center. If you want to know how Andromeda should have been done, Read Robert Hewitt Wolfe's Coda:
