This show started off every episode as a sci-fi and ended up as one again but in the middle it was a big fat soap opera. Nothing wrong with that cause it was well made and the fact that Scott Bakula's character would change "bodies" every episode was interesting. I Remember that sometimes all i ever watched was the beginning to see who he was this time on the episode.
Some episodes were a hit and others were a miss, overall a good experience. It had some very good social themes that dealt with racism, women rights, handicapped people, etc.
Worth the watch if you have the time.
