  • So far this was the worst episode of all.


    So far this was the worst episode of the whole series. An indian legend mixed up with alien invasion is a plot that was very happily used many times before. But this one was so huuuuge that it basically made me laugh. A totem with EBE face? Come on!

    Episode looked for me like a pilot episode but it was meant to be broadcasted later. My thinking is due to fact of bad filming and actors play. The dialogue lines were weak and predictable and sometimes even naive. The special effects were so lousy that even in the series in the late 80's we have seen better.

    The episode barely moves the plot farther. I think that it might be due to some rumours that the show must come to an end after the first season...
