A really shitty attempt at thieving from the La Femme Nikita - (1990 movie) character and universe.
Time travellers recruit an everyman to help save their world.
Crude and un-funny.
Pseudo-immortality is reached when alien technology allows humans to save their consciousnesses to reusable disks, and a criminal's disk is brought online from deep storage, for him to investigate the crime against an ancient and powerful man.
Finally, a science fiction show with real depth and darkness. Highly recommended.
Quite a good story. It's full of faces I know. Great acting and spectacular realism.
Note: This video style is shaky.
A military unit is sent on missions in a future where all of humanity is at war with alien insects.
The show is animated, and not "anime". As such, it has not held up well with time. The music is fantastic, though. Truly. However, its other high points do not make up for the visual issue I have.
While it doesn't do it for me, I would recommend this for fans of the movie or movie series who can also handle the visual style and jerky movement that to me is reminiscent of ReBoot (1994-09-10 to 2001-11-30 television show).
- Properly titled Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles
- Ran from 1999-08-30 to 2000-04-03
- Based on the book.
Based the movie Starship Troopers - (1997 movie), and is definitely not a sequel to it.
