Remember how good the movie was?
Yeah, well, the two parter of The Andromeda Strain that'll be shown on A&E starting memorial day is not that good.
OK, I can live with the error about Buckminster Fuller discovering "Buckyballs", rather than having them named after him.
But come on! Having the WILDFIRE site powered by a small nuclear reactor with an open pile, looking like a fuel rod storage pool, complete with the blue glow of Cherenkov radiation.
And then there's the wormhole from whence came the Andromeda Strain.
Don't forget the secondary and tertiary sub-plots concerning a substance abusing reporter AND a Government Conspiracy, a la The X-Files.
OY! Just... Oy.
The first part IS pretty good, and 3/4ths of the second part holds the attention, but, yeah, the whole reactor thing just ruined it for me.
Your milage may vary.
