watched 15 mins of it on tuesday when it was first shown ... gave up ... recorded it last night (for some reason my V+ won't series link the showing on Tuesday and more worryingly won't series link Dollhouse either!)

going to give it another go ... but it is terrible ... can cope with it being a 'Stang ... but some of the special effects were dire and some of the acting was so bad they wouldn't have passed auditions for a B-Movie

at the moment it's questionable whether there is a season 2 ... I do know they did a slight reboot or something during season 1 as it was going so bad and in the end they reduced the series to 16 or 17 episodes instead of the normal 22-24 of a US series !

I'll vote once I've watched the 1st ep again ... but i don't expect it to be good

It was bad, really bad, so bad it was actually a bit funny.

Then again..

I was a big, big, fan of the original series, but if you re-watch it without the rose tinted glasses of youth, you can find that actually it was a bit rubbish too. (ducks)

(was it really 25 years ago, now I'm depressed)

Haven't seen it but my guess is that it will be total crap.

Marksie is right, you tend to remember the original series as being great but in fact it was total crap as well. Still, I liked it at the time though. Great theme tune.

The original was bad enough, but was must be watched car crash material.

I didn't even know a new series had been done :eek:

Ar5e gravy of the lowest caliber.:rant:

Even worse than the original (except, as has been mentioned, at least the car itself is decent, not that piece-of-tin Firebird... )

Don't even go there....

the one thing that really troubles me about the Mustang in this new series, is that rear spoiler, its just wrong!:lol:

Plus every scene with the car driving was CGI, now if you've got a real car and you live in America, how hard would it be to drive down an open road? why do you need to waste the money by doing this thru CGI badly?
