This miniseries was fucking great and its one of my childhood favorites.
The new series was horrible. Morena Baccarin couldn't pull off the villain role and just lost the whole fun vibe the of the original. I also love how the mother kills her baby alien daddy because he didn't tell her about being a reptile and she wanted to test the alien smallpox on him.
Which was really badass when you compare it to the new series, considering that the older series was pro alien reptile genocide.
