Ok heres my take.
I saw the previews and thought this looks like cheap crap. You have to start wondering when even the previews even looked sucky.
I watched only to see how bad it could really GET. They blew away my worst expectations.
Ming is no longer a bald Asiatic looking Emperor. He looks like a blonde german actor/model
Dale is OK, Princess Ardula is nothing to look at, and some bounty hunter type appears.
Instead of spaceships flying to Mongo they now use a dimensional rift to go back and forth so no need for special effects budget eating spacehsip scenes. The flying ship scenes, what little there were, were very short and IMHO didnt look good at all.
NO, have I lost something??
What show is this? Dr. Who?
