Earth 2 was a great show
5 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

I watched this show from the moment it first premiered back in 1994, and I loved it. The concept was fresh and thought provoking. Sure it had a few flaws at first; however, the acting was spot-on and the premise was intelligent and intriguing: humans have raped the planet to the point of near inhabitability, are living in artificial environments upon space stations, and are now traversing the known Universe searching for a planet to call home. Earth2 was wrought with characters who make mistakes and often act out of self interest and scheming government imperialists who seek to control this new world at any cost. This show had so much to offer. I miss it and I am so glad this series is out on DVD, despite the fact that we got no closure. It seems to be the plight of the truly intelligent sci-fi shows to be canceled for no apparent reason; perhaps people cannot handle shows like Earth 2 (and Firefly-for anyone who has seen it) in which humanity must suffer displacement as a result of the abuse they visited upon the Earth.
