Okay, since my comment seasons 2 and 3 appears to be greenlighted. Not sure how this will fare, but I really hope they get it right!

Worth seeing it. It would be nice to have a 2nd season, but since there would be no books to base it on, let's leave it on just 1 season

I'm interested in seeing this, I have the original 1980s series on dvd. That version was amazing, hope this one is as well!

The imperial ruler is the good guy against supposed evil priests and capitalists? A mysterious British pirate pilot drops in to give the upper hand to the dubious good Lord? Maybe I should watch the preview but I'm thinking not.
