But by now we are spoiled with good sci-fi, it's kinda soapy and the effects are pretty bad. It was an amazing show when it aired but it has lost a lot of it's appeal now.
Actually it was a lousy show when it first aired. It had very little appeal. The original miniseries was great, a smart, thoughtful allegory on the rise of Nazism. The second miniseries downplayed the allegory and social commentary in favor of action, soap opera, and cheesy sci-fi gimmickry. And the weekly series abandoned any pretense of allegory or sophistication altogether. It was poorly regarded at the time for how badly it dumbed down the concept.
You're right but I wasn't old enough to realize it back then.
