This conflict can be played up much better than the way they did it in this show. In the show his father is 'mad' at his son for actually saving all their lives. That's just stupid, IMHO. If you want to go that route, you need to create a situation that is way less black and white. Where there is some doubt about whether it was the right choice...
Sheldon wasn't mad at Brandon for saving their lives. He was disappointed that Brandon broke The Code because, as Sheldon explained to Brandon, there's always another way to resolve the issue. His conviction that The Code must be absolute, and pretty much spent all 8 episodes explaining why he felt that way. Even at the end, after the battle with the real Blackstar, and Sheldon told Brandon he wasn't going to let him die, but never said he would have violated The Code to do it.
Anyway, I think the series started off a bit slow. It took me a few episodes to really get into it, but over all, I enjoyed it. Didn't mind the origin story being told in flashback, but would have rather had it told all at once, not drug out over all eight episodes.
Would like to see another season.
