The creators took a show from my childhood, and brought it up to date. They aged it appropriately to capture the kids, now adults, who loved the original. It was brilliant. It was edgy, it was dark. While watching it, I always felt cold. The ship was dark, damp, and musty. It's no wonder people longed for companionship. There were great twists and turns. Your loyalties were turned end over end. The writing, complete to the last episode, was superb.
I for one, have started collecting the DVDs. I will watch it again.
