Hey, I loved this show! I only have the vaguest recollection of it though. I recall they were always being set upon by those dudes that came up out of the sand, or something. This the one I'm thinking of?

I think Curry is more an over the top, campy villian, whereas Rickman is a pure malevolence, I don't care if the movie's a joke, I'm gonna scare little kiddies villian. Just my opinion, though.

And that is a great line.

as snape, richman does a good job of slimy malevolence (only good thing about the harry potter films, imho). but to me curry is my idea of the perfect villian. he never seems to have any good points at all. i don't like my villians to be multidimensional. bad guys should be bad!

Hmmm. Six degrees - Michael Wincott played second to both Curry and Rickman in Musketeers and Prince of Thieves, no? Spooky. Now there's a man who can portray a villian to perfection, even if it's mostly the dastardly sidekick role. Don't think I've ever seen him in anything but as a villian. With that voice, I suppose, you're not gonna be cast as the friendly male nurse or selfless youth counsellor...

All I remember of this now is the things coming out of the ground. No idea what it was all about. Another series that they cancelled without explaining anything! I wish when studio executives decide to cancel a series they could at least have the decency to pay for one final show to explain what on Earth2 is going on!

What the?. . . Wasn’t that how the native intelligent life spoke on that show. Or was that mars attacks? No, wait Mars attacks Aliens go DA! DADA! DADAdadaDA! Was sad to see this show go. Where do the old shows go when they die? Sad to see Earth 2 go. Distraught to see Firefly go. You know there was a show that was like ER in space and I thought “what a stupid idea” and I was hooked after two shows. What was that one called?

I loved Earth 2 when it was on, but I barely remeber anything about it either. Except for Antonio Sabato Jr. A girl doesn't forget a man who looks like that!

I totally agree that Rickman is a more convincing villian than Curry. I find Curry more of a funny villian, whereas Rickman can be like the creepiest guy on earth.

And did someone mention Michael Wincott? mmmmmrrrrroooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.....
