Has anyone watched this? I was scrolling through my guide and saw that next Saturday Feb 7th, Chill will be showing all 8 episodes so I have them set to record. I myself have not seen this show.

Kandice | 3945 comments I saw it when it first came out. I don't remember tons about it, except that there was an old man, a scientific "accident" made grow younger. I think I remember the theme song being Golden Years by David Bowie, which I LOVE.

I read that the opening song is by Bowie. That's pretty big! I am surprised he did it.

Kandice | 3945 comments The same song is in A Knight's Tale. The dance scene during is beautiful. It's an excellent song.

Oh I do know the song now! I didn't realize it was that song. Poor Heath!

Felicity Huffman totally looks like Scully in this show. I am starting it today and it is kinda slow.

Kandice | 3945 comments It gets better once you do. It's been a long time since I saw it, but, I do remember liking it once it got going.

Rick | 38 comments I saw this when it first aired and really enjoyed it. Although that was years and years ago. I was wondering if the new DVD coming out was formated as individual episodes or edited into a single narrative. I also seem to recall there being two endings - the original broadcast conclusion being different from what was released on the original DVD release. Anyone know?

Randy Eberle | 92 comments The new DVD has the new ending and is a single narrative. However, if you want to watch the original episodic version (which I actually prefer despite the "to be continued" ending), you can find that on Netflix.

Randy Eberle | 92 comments Angie, David Bowie did not write the song for the TV series; it was originally released on his 1976 album Station to Station.

BOO.. HISS!!! Such a let down (though still cool they used Bowie).
