I’ll be honest with you, the first season after they switched over to the Sci-Fi Channel wasn’t all that great. Text version below the fold.

    Hooray for name-checking Ken Catran’s Deepwater Black YA novel trilogy! Him being a fellow kiwi and all. And wow, I had no idea it was actually made into television. It never showed on New Zealand TV, of course. ‘Tis the way of the world. Tall poppies and number eight wire and so on.

    tbh I never aaactually read the books but they were certainly in our library and I did stare at the covers for quite a while before going ‘nope, I don’t see myself enjoying this’.

    It’s not a series I’d actually ever heard of until I went looking up Sci-Fi Channel original series looking for something Doctor Who could latch onto. From what little I watched of the show itself… Yeah, the covers probably told you what you needed to know.
