a nice solid mid-80's SF miniseries
10 December 2018 | by susan-787See all my reviews

Just re-watched this last night; it's still kind of fun! you can see the time in everything from the sFX to the wardrobe and make-up choices, but it still stand the test of time. Nice to wonder what they could have done with "modern" FX and a decent budget...
