    To be fair, it is hard to find a 23mm NATO.

    I will never cease to be amazed at how much they are still milking that game for all it's worth and that it's still going. IIRC they nearly bankrupted themselves with the first round of merchandising.

    I also watched all 3 and thought 1 & 3 were the best of them. Agree that they are very similar: it's kinda the point of the franchise. The ludicrous initial setup being a running joke: "stop pissing...

    The first season is a slow-burn but really good if you keep going. It also builds the setting for what could be one of the best sci-fi series ever. I would compare it to a mixture of Blade Runner,...

    That's weird. I like it. For some reason I wish it had a small sub-second at 3 instead of a sweep hand. Actually, I know why. Pac Man is why.
