Oh. A nine year old thread with thousands of posts, and I have not contributed a single post until about a minute or three from now. I must make amends with an unbidden opinion.

When the original series was about to screen various media filled up with trailers. The one I watched gave me the impression that the setting was somewhat medieval. Then footage of an attractive woman was shown. She had impeccably coiffed, blond hair, black eyebrows so neat they looked painted on, and there was not a speck of dust on her as she flew through the air, riding on the back of a huge, reptilian animal the design of which may have been inspired by one of those creatures in Jurassic Park. By the end of that trailer I had formed the kind of opinion many of you appear to have arrived at eight years later, albeit for different reasons.
