To put in my two cents...
Wow, someone beat me to the punch in starting this Talkback thread!
Anyways, I remember watching the original series when I was younger. If my memories and this review are any indication, then I see that I didn't miss anything.(Especially if the titular form-changer and his allies are the type of irredemable and thuggish demon creatures that this review implies they are).
Finally, if reviews got reviewed, this would obtain four and a half stars.
