Well I'm the only one I know that ever watched it, although I got a friend of mine hooked with reruns. It was such a fun concept and had, in my mind, some warm great characters in it. I always felt comfortable watching it, although there was occasionally interesting action. I love animals and interesting landscapes, plus the stories weren't half bad.

I really enjoyed the show too. I often found the subplots with the Ancient One and the Sorceress the most interesting parts but I loved all of it.

Its not a popular show, it would go good with a younger crowd.

I also liked the show, though my wife gives me a hard time about it. But, that never bothered me, I thought it was good. I really liked the landscape of the show. The story was good as well, I really liked it when the orginal Dar showed up and was helping with along the way.

Well, we have something in common. I am the only one I know who watches the show as well. Overall, I think it is a great show. I love animals so thats one reason. Also, the landscapes were fantastic. I loved the overall story too. I do have to admit....they could have done more with it...namely ran the show longer. i hate it when i get into a show and it ends or gets cancelled.

that being said...i also dont mind seeing Daniel Goddard and Jackson Raine....they are pretty hott so thats nice too.

I can respect that. I watched Sheena simply to see Gena Lee Nolan running around in a fur bikini.

I stumbled across Beastmaster over two years ago. I was flipping through channels on the crappy cable service we had (it was a small town, so really had limited channels), and nothing was on. I came across a glance at the show, and kept watching, and didn't stop until the mini-marathon of a string of episodes ended. I was hooked! I luckily caught it back when they aired the show in the daytime on SciFi. Now I DVR the episodes if I'm not up when they come up.

This show is up definitely up there in one of my top favorite shows of all time. The character of Dar is such a positive, inspiring role model. I love everything about the show...from the characters and animals that make you care, to the battle scenes, to the special effects, to the plots, to the editing and directing. It's great all-around, and could've easily been a phenomenon had it gotten more of the chance to be.

Oh, and for the record, I was the only one I knew who watched it for 2 years, and I just barely found someone about a month ago who also watches it. I wish SciFi would start showing it in prime time slots again so more people can experience the beauty that is this show.

During my childhood years, I used to watch this series, and I totally like it, when he has the power of forest animals that gave him strength. Beastmaster was indeed a great successful TV series.

Probably would have worked better as a cartoon in the 80's

Yes, I liked the show too. I was so glad when it arrived on DVD.
The thing about it was, when it ran on television it never seemed to be in a consistent time slot (at my location, anyway).
I felt lost much of the time.
Then when the series came out on DVD I picked it up and realized that the whole series was like one AMAZINGLY long film. If you missed a few episodes, you missed a lot.
I think My favorite character was King Voden. The guy was just so unlikeable, but he was also humorous.
I also appreciated the way this series actually had a conclusion, -unlike, "The Lost World" (I am still so irked).
I've viewed the entire BeastMaster series twice, and could definitely go for a third time, someday.
I remember seeing the original film at the theatre back in the early 80's and this TV series was definitely long overdue . . .

I've been hoping these shows, especially Hercules: The Legendary Journeys will show up again soon. They were a lot of fun.

I watched the show from the time it premiered during its original run which started in 1999. It used to come on Saturday afternoon. When I was a kid growing up there were tons of Saturday action/ adventure/ fantasy/ scifi shows on the air.

The Adventures of Sinbad
Hercules
Xena
The Lost World
Beastmaster
Mutant X
Earth Final Conflict
Andromeda
The Queen of Swords
Relic Hunter

Anyone else remember these shows? I didn't mention a few of them because they were very short lived. Anyway, I remember Beastmaster and I actually had a few friends who watched it once or twice, but none of them watched it every weekend like me.
