Advertisements That was quite possibly the absolute worst piece of television I have seen in my entire life. The acting was bad, the story was bad, everything was bad. I'm really glad ABC didn't pick this piece of garbage up. I knew it was going to be crap when I saw it was based on a Robert Heinlein short story. I read Stranger in a Strange Land and, unlike every other human being I think, I absolutely hated it. And this had every mark of that same kind of crap. I think I'll go watch Flash Gordon again to remember what quality TV looks like.
