Great Saturday Morning Fare (a pity they didn't run it then)
28 April 2001 | by siege_bSee all my reviews

It's a shame this show only lasted for two seasons. It wasn't brilliant by any means, but it was surprisingly easy to get into, and after watching a number of episodes I became quite hooked on it. In Australia it was shown at two o'clock on Wednesday mornings, but I found it was the perfect show to have with breakfast on a Saturday and taped it regularly. Unfortunately, I discovered too late that there were only a limited number of episodes, and the show could not be found on video, so I didn't manage to keep any of them.

The show itself is quite remarkable. Unlike most science fiction programmes, it is set in the near future and almost everything used in the series is something that could conceivably be created today. The story lines and acting are a little too cartoonish for the show to be overly believable, but there is a stronger element of believability to this programme than many other science fiction offerings. Produced as a co-operative exercise between England and Germany, with German, British and American actors and characters from Germany, GB, the US and Russia, there is more than one 'double meaning' behind the Space Station's name: Unity (incidentally, the name of one of the modules of the International Space Station). The possible issues of corporate ownership is explored in detail in this series, as are the tensions that arise from isolating a small group of people in a confined space. I wouldn't call the series ground-breaking, but it has it's high points and is worth more attention that it received.
