Thorough, insightful reviews...great prod values!

Well, I'm a latecomer to this podcast, but I'm very impressed. It provides a great re-cap of the episodes (something I wish more podcasts would do), and also has plenty of clips from the show. I love this, because although I watched the show when it came out, I'm not re-watching it now, but the re-caps and clips are enough that I find myself remembering each episode. It goes beyond just retelling the plots though--they have great insights and do their homework on behind the scenes aspects like actors, stories, locations, and alternate plots. A great podcast for a great show!

DMMc ,

Thank you!

Loving this podcast nearly as much as I loved the series. Thanks guys for doing a great job.

davekill ,

This was a great show while on TV for just a brief time.

I'm glad I found the Alien Nation podcast, it's like seeing the episodes again with a couple of friends.
