It is a tad awful.
It's also approaching 40 if you count the new series on top of the old seasons. I liked Baker as a little kid. Having rewatched some, they're bad, but at least they're cult/MST3K bad.
The new series feels like a middling drama that kind of played all its cards in two seasons. I watched it with family but had to stop somewhere between series 8 and 9 as the writing grew more and more atrocious. Even my tolerance levels for cheese were stretched.
I think both the old and new could have been so much better as a sci-fi program, but I won't lose any sleep over it.
