Awesome show, about 15 years ahead of it's time. This show is the best of what wild west steam punk can be but done in 1995. Richard Dean Anderson and John de Lancie are both at their best here and the show doesn't take it self too seriously to throw in all manner of sci-fi homages.

Who knew Q and O'Neill would be a good dynamic duo. Hated that it ended so soon.
