Symptom 93: Andromeda - It's Not Star Trek

Fan service android month rolls on. Sorry, Sy-Fy network series month continues with Gene Roddenberry’s Andromeda. This series can be described simply as - unreached potential. Conceptually the scripts are excellent science fiction. The idea of a dystopian future in the wake of a collapsed Utopia is intriguing. One ship trying to restore the light of the fallen society is something that should have hooked everyone. It is ruined by horrible dialogue, terrible and uninspired acting and budget that makes it look like well done fan fiction. This series is intriguing, when it hits it hits well, but ultimately it needed a writing room that could re-write and punch up weaker dialogue and better camera work/direction to achieve all that it could have.
