    SyFy is having a marathon showing today. What is it? Where did it come from? Should I continue to watch Patton on AMC?

    It was a series on the original Sci Fi Friday (Yes, when the channel was cool at the time and actually called Sci-Fi) along with shows like Lexx and Farscape. I didn't watch it so I can't tell you anymore.

    That's the one with Sebastian Spence and Rob Labelle as the leads isn't it?

    It's been ages since I saw any of it. All I can recall is that it didn't leave enough of an impression to look and see if it's been released on dvd.

    I watched it regularly... it ran from 1998-2001. I enjoyed it for the most part, but I will admit there was nothing terribly original about it (it was basically like a modern version of The Invaders, with a dash of The Fugitive thrown in).

    As far as I know, it hasn't been released on DVD.

    I have vague memories of it. Nothing special.

    It was a good series, but like pointed out, nothing terribly original. Should point out though -- there's almsot no such thing as "originallity" in any new TV series.

    I liked what I saw of it. I wouldn't mind a rewatch.
