I know Spacehunter looks lame … and it is, but trust me, its worth a Sunday afternoon if you don’t have anything else to do. It’s got Peter Strauss, Molly Ringwald, Ernie Hudson,and Michael Ironside! I mean come on; how bad can it possibly be with Ernie Hudson and Michael Ironside?
Fans will be waiting eagerly for the season premiere. The season two cliff-hanger seems like forever ago. If you’ve been living in a cave and somehow managed to miss the first and second seasons of this series, the summer premiere date leaves you a little time to catch up with the series on DVD.
