    This was a tv movie before it became a tv series. I remember watching it on the sci fi channel.

    The tone of the TV movie was darker - it felt more like Batman (the 1989 Tim Burton movie). When it became a series, it was revamped and the sci-fi quotient was kicked up. I preferred the approach of the TV movie, but the series was enjoyable in its own right.

    I never saw the movie and I completely forgot about the series till I saw it here. As I remember, it was pretty cool but just a bit on the hokey side. This was when it was on broadcast TV. I'd love to see it again just for old times sake.

    well both ways the Mantis character had such great potential and I was devastated by the lame ending of the show. i mean seriously, an invisible dinosaur is the reason the Mantis dies???
