Re: SPACE: Above and Beyond - Reviews and general geekiness

Well, that brings back childhood memories.

A show which definitely should have been renewed for a second season. But I think it was too expensive to produce and also too dark for most viewers (in the mid-90s anyway). I wonder whether Ron Moore borrowed/stole a thing or two for nuBSG here. On the other hand, Space Above and Beyond itself seemed to have been inspired by Heinlein's Starship Troopers, Haldeman's Forever War, and James Cameron's Aliens (or the Alien films in general, compare Weyland-Yutani & Aerotech for instance).

Favorite character: Lt. Col. T.C. McQueen (obviously)

Quite fittingly for the general tone of the show it ended with
