I like it, the suit needs a tweaking to get more of a purple tint to it instead of black. I would love to see this as a series, the development potential for at least 13 if not 26 episodes is large. looking forward to the next one, if there is a next one.

The plot line kept my interest. Like most comments, I agree it still needs alittle work but give it a chance.

Now the suit for the phantom does need some work.
What were they thinKing?
The helmut thingy has got to go! It was distracting to say the least.
How could anyone take someone seriously with such a funky hat .
It kind of had a thirties Ingred Bergman look to it.

You mean the slimmed down bomb disposal suit? You mean the motocross armor with the codpiece cup in his chest?

For all of you people screaming that you want a show to come out of this movie, DONT, because than they will think that it will outstrip the ratings of their flagship shows, like the crappy BSG prequil, or the even more crappy SGU. Then they will do what they did to Dresden files and cancel it because it was a kick *** show,

However, I do think that with the correct writters this could be an awsom show

There is no truth found in personal taste. I happen to like SGU and Caprica. I also liked Dresden Files. None of those opinions makes either of us right or wrong, nor do they imply any truth except from a singular point of view.

The same question could be asked about a guy who runs around in purple tights. <_<

Am a BIG fan of The Phantom since childhood and am looking forward to seeing MORE of the series (there will be more??) . I know that times have changed but let's not forget the original concept of this Ghost Who Walks

I agree that this new Phantom is a fresh start for the character although I think the mask of the suit needs to be changed more. At any rate, my question for the forum is this: In the Phantom's arsenal, is he using traditional .45 caliber 1911 pistols or are they modified?

In the scene where Kit decided to accept the role of the Phantom it was explained to him that his father's pistols were modified to chamber a larger round than the .45 ACP.

I hope they make a series. I think it has a lot of potential and I really enjoyed the miniseries. The story just seemed to be developing and then it was over, so hopefully there will be more to come.

All of you who are bashing the new suit, I disagree with you, but I see where you're coming from. I didn't know what The Phantom was before I rented this, so I had no prior knowledge of the character, the suit, etc. After watching the movie, and seeing pictures of the old suit, I feel like not only is the new suit 1000x better, butI personally think it beats any other superhero's suit out there. However, for those who grew up with The Ghost Who Walks, I can see why the change would bother you. But I think you should just look past the suit and see how great this series will be. I watched the pilot all in one sitting, and liked it so much that I watched all of it again two days later.

Make the sequel. It would be senseless to cut the story short just as it was getting good.

I must have missed that or it did not air as believed. Regardless, I watched the DVD as it was available in my local Family Video Store. I actually was impressed with it, and still like the original motion picture that starred Billy Zane. What can I say, I am old school and do not mind the old comic book characters of the WWII era being revived either on the big screen or in a TV mini series. Like many others who have posted, I too would not mind a sequel. I guess it would be up to the fans to pester the people at NBC to finance and produce one. LOL. Be well one and all. Jimmstrek
