I picked up the rest of S2 from the Library the other day, looking forward to digging in!
I think Patrick has got it spot :yes: I too was VERY young when season 1 aired and although I loved the setting and Eagle's etc. I found it a bit boring (but scary-never forget Force of Life or Dragon's domain) I think I was too young to appreciate the stories and acting. So when Season 2 came along-I loved it, Action, Action, Action, Colour, Monsters, humour and more Eagle model shots (oh and Maya! I was only 7 ) Much later, as an adult, I watched the series again and could suddenly appreciate season 1 for the amazing cinematic feel it gave, huge production values, huge stars and very good scrips. However, still have a huge soft spot for S2, for the reasons Patrick said. It was the right place, right time :thumbup: I kind of treat the two series as almost different entities. Still enjoy them both hugely and that's what counts isn't it
.....and always will be, I think. It's just so utterly alien, and it is never resolved - no explanation of motive, how it got there, if there are any more of its kind,
Yeah, I recall "Dragon's Domain" being quite haunting and memorable upon my first viewing in '08. Funny thing, before my most recent re-watch I thought the monster killed far more people; like it was eating tons of people on Alpha.
That's another thing, how many dozens of people have died since the initial explosion? They keep stating there's still three hundred or so people on Alpha!
