    OK, this is some of the most borked guide data I've ever seen. I set a season pass to record first runs only. Next thing I know, I have a dozen hours recorded. Since the guide data is identical I play the first minute of the first one so I know how it starts, then compare that with the rest of the recordings. I'm probably not the only person to get annoyed with seeing that same opening of the couple on the hood of the car at the beginning of every one of the 20 recordings it seems like I've deleted now. If I hadn't checked here I wouldn't have known to look for a 4-hour episode and just given up on it. Somebody dropped the ball on that guide entry...

    Now that is creative and does acknowledge that the audience is intelligent.

    I take back everything I said; this version stunk. No way I would purchase the DVDs.

    It was decent, though, I don't know if I buy the whole wormhole and future involvement business.

    But a lot of other elements worked well.

    But it could have been much better.
    I still can not get over the rapid spreading of Andromeda and the helicopters spraying hundreds of square miles, and them cheering that "We got it!"

    How did they know they got it? What about in a cave or gopher hole? Under a rock? It was just too convenient. I hate when it is too easy... especially when they waste time in other parts of the movie with filler...

    I agree parts were good, but like I said before, they needed to cut this down to a 90 minute movie.
