So this is getting remade into a new, extremely awesome-looking series, to start November 3rd, which is a Tuesday. Hopefully it won't conflict with Shark Tank. Just FYI, Inara from Firefly is in the new one. So because of that, since I haven't seen it since I was 14, I downloaded it and my friend and I are watching it over. I had completely forgotten how great the original two miniseries were. Cliffs: ***** minor spoilers ***** Aliens from the 4th planet of Sirius arrive on earth and promise to give us all their technology in exchange for helping them manufacture a chemical they need to save their planet. But all is not as it seems. Very heavy in historical allegory. It's mainly about the Nazi takeover of Germany.
