Sorbo On His Vision For 'Andromeda'

By Caillan
November 28, 2001 - 11:05 AM

Following the departure of Andromeda developer Robert Hewitt Wolfe, series star Kevin Sorbo (Dylan Hunt) yesterday revealed his own creative vision for the series. According to the actor, the show's ongoing storyline was preventing new viewers from enjoying the crew's adventures.

"We said, 'Look, the idea of the show is supposed to be like the original Star Trek, where there's a beginning, middle and end, boom, you move on," Sorbo told Kate O'Hare at Zap2it. "If you come in as a casual viewer and watch one or two episodes a month, you have fun. You know what's going on, you're not confused.' That was the biggest problem in season one."

Per this new approach to the series, Dylan Hunt's mission is set to get an overhaul. "Season two is so much better, I think. At the end of this season, we're going to have Hunt basically say, not 'to Hell with the Commonwealth,' but he's going to say, 'You know what, I've got his ship, I've got you guys with me, why don't we just go out there and help people who need our help. Let's do some good.' So the show's going to be become more of an adventure, come along for the ride."

The producer thinks that Andromeda is exactly what viewers want to see on television. "People want escapism," he said. "They want to see the good guy beat the bad guy. We want to see triumphs that are good over evil, not see people talk about, 'Oh, she's such a bitch.' Oh god, so boring. It's amazing to me, Temptation Island III, whatever."
