James and I loved the first two seasons of Andromeda. Great characters, stimulating story line, it was wonderful writing and execution.
We got the first DVD of season three and episode after episode we looked at each other in confusion. What the heck was that? The actors were doing their job but the story sucked. We watched five or six episodes and gave up on Monday. It’s on to something else.
James read a synopsis of the remaining episodes declared they were all crap and made up his own ending, “Tyr takes over the ship, then conquers and rules the entire universe.” Works for me. It’s also entirely within character for Tyr. Some quotes to illustrate:
Tyr Anasazi: What would you like, Jaguar?
Charlemagne Bolivar: The usual. Hundreds of grandchildren, utter domination of known space and the pleasure of hearing that all of my enemies have died in terrible, highly improbable accidents that cannot be connected to me. And you?
Tyr Anasazi: [Laughs] The usual.
Tyr Anasazi: I have faith in nothing but this – when the universe collapses and dies. There will be three survivors – Tyr Anasazi, the cockroaches, and Dylan Hunt trying to save the cockroaches.
