  • I started watching this show.

    I just started watching this show and I instantly got hooked. It was very interesting aswell as inspiring to see ideas like Nanits recreating the human body, or a drug capable of connecting multiple minds. weather or not these idea's are even possible.... but I for one think outside the box and believe anything is possible. I mean who knows where science may take us.



    But with the cliffhanger. I was so into this show aswell as Fringe and the 4400. why did they cancel them is it because people are pirating to watch them so producers can't make money or the ratings are dropped therefore there isn't any interest for a tv network to keep them on the air. if that's the case someone should create a solution. so fututre shows like Continuum can complete the story line. I'll be pissed if they show get's cancelled.moreless
  • Great show, lost before it had a chance to really get going

    9.5
    This is a show about 5 people from the future going back in time to try to stop the world from blowing up. When they go back in time they are in their bodies from 5 years in the past and they are the only ones that know about the future.



    When they go back in time they come across the problem of just because you knew that it happened doesn't mean that it is going to happen again. This causes problems for the team because they want to save the world but the events that keep changing make it harder to know what is going on. Every move that they make changes something and the bad guys change with it.



    The show is well written and yes there are some not so great episodes but the overall show is great and the ending is aswome. I wish that they had continued the show in atleast another format to finish the story.



    Definately a must have for scifi fans on dvd.moreless
  • Finally something interesting

    For whatever reason execs at the networks chose to dump a show that is well-written, cast with great actors and has an interesting story i really do not know. Odyssey 5 is not only intriguing story-wise but it also works as an ensemble piece. the crew is very likeable and sometimes very funny and ironic. Especially the relationship between Kurt and Angela is quite interesting. Peter Weller totally nails the part of Taggart. i haven't seen a performance like that in a very long time. I would really like to know if the 5 actually prevent the earth from exploding or if the sentients prevail. The last episode has a huge cliffhanger and i would like to see that resolved. what about a mini-series?moreless
  • OK, some of the episodes were decidedly cheesy... however, the last four were really great and the whole story was really building momentum... and then... CUT! end of season, end of series. Definitely needs a movie to give us closure!moreless

    Started off really great - brilliant and new idea... great characters, very different concept of sci fi using a realistic space shuttle. OK, during the season, some of the episodes were decidedly cheesy... however, the last four episodes were really great and the whole story was really building momentum and coming together.



    The fact that the characters involved were barking up the wrong tree, and that more information was coming out ... poor Kurt was stuck in jail ... poor Sara is losing her son and possibly her future husband... (oops! Spoilers!) ... and then... CUT! end of season, end of series. Definitely needs a movie to give us closure! PLEASE!moreless
