WHITE SUPREMACY. THIS SHOW WAS SOLID WHEN IT CAME TO SCIENCE. BUT IT IS DEFINITELY RACISTS. POTRAYING BLACK AND BROWN SKIN PEOPLE AD SAVAGES, DIRTY AND DUMB. WHILE ALSO PORTRAYING THE TWO MAIN WHITE DUDES AS SUPERIOR

LOVED THE ORIGINAL JONNY QUEST (1964-1965) EVEN THOUGH THIS SHOW WAS AROUND MY PARENTS' TIME SINCE IT WAS THEIR ERA (THE COUNTERCULTURE OF THE ROLLING 60'S) THIS WAS INDEED A GOOD SHOW MY MOM INFLUENCED ME AND MY TWO OLDER SIBLINGS IN WATCHING WHAT SHE HAD WATCHED GROWING UP AND WE ENJOY THEM . HOWEVER THOUGH THE DEPICTIONS OF ASIANS (AS A WHOLE, REGARDLESS OF NATIONALITIES) IS RACIALLY STEREOTYPED IN THE WRONG LIGHT BUT I'M NOT ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO DWELL ON THESE THINGS.
I enjoy the series. The show reminds me of a time when scientist worked for the betterment of mankind with governments who protected their citizens against the evil people in the world.
