    In-fucking-credible show.:bowdown: I went out and bought the dvd set when it came out. It only ran for one season, 24 episodes, in 1995-96. most likely cancelled due to poor ratings. hey, it's tough following the nfl. half the time the show was pre-empted by games. shitty time slot. it actually did better during its second run on sci-fi.

    anyways, go out and buy this or rent it. you won't be disappointed.

    Colonel Tyrus Cassius McQueen, Commander of the 58th Wildcards: not only did he kill Chiggy von Richtoffen one on one, he could kick Elim Garak's ass without breaking a sweat.

    What a great fucking show.

    I don't think I've ever actually seen it. But nobody is cooler than Garak. :squint:

    OK, I bought the set. I'm not convinced it was incredible. It didn't suck but it wasn't awesome or anything for me. Seemed a lil hokey and cheesy.

    Love this show. I used to watch it when I could when it first aired, but never finished it. I've got it downloaded now, just trying to finish B5 before I start... I've been dragging ass on that. Half-way through season 5 with the movies and Crusade to finish. :ugh:

    Oh well. I watched the first episode though and R. Lee Ermy really did it for me. The guy makes me laugh everytime he goes Sr. Drill Instructor GySgt Hartman on them, but maybe that's because I've been through Marine Corps Boot Camp.

    I wasn't aware that the series had been made available on DVD, thanks for reminding me to check it out.

    The show was also broadcast in England and I remember the last episode with sadness, because they made sure the series could never be resurrected.

    (This is my first post outside Initiation, thanks for letting me contribute)
