The first 5 episodes of season 4 are a great disappointment. Like the tinny music that is suppose to heighten the drama, all the episodes are 'out of tune' so to speak. Perhaps it is because the episodes are about 40 minutes a piece, but it all seems to be sped up.
The element of drama is missing. Andromeda has always had humor and it is not a heavy SciFi program, but these shows have no drama or tension. In one episode, the ship Andromeda is going to crash into a moon. The crew must blow up two devices on the moon that are causing this crisis. However, it all seems to be a lark for the crew. Becka and Harper go off to scavenge another crashed ship and the mad genius villian can't figure out that there are explosives on his key weapons.
The villians are all controlled by the Magog 'Deity' whose only desire is to kill Dylan Hunt. If the Magog Diety can control all these people across vast distances of space, why can it not kill Dylan. There are more inconsistencies. Harper somehow now has a mother. I thought his parents died. Andromeda is not a show you watch for logic, but it normally keeps to the story line.
Dylan is diminished and Becka is just now silly. I even found it hard to understand what had just happened in parts.
Hopefully the series will improve.
