People watched it and blew the old one away in the ratings.
The series features Edward James Olmos and Mary McDonnell, and garnered a
wide range of critical acclaim, which included a Peabody Award, the
Television Critics Association's Program of the Year Award, a placement
inside Time's 100 Best TV Shows of All-TIME, and Emmy nominations for
its writing, directing, costume design, visual effects, sound mixing,
and sound editing, with Emmy wins for both visual effects and sound
editing. In 2013 TV Guide included it in its list of The 60 Greatest
Dramas of All Time.
The old one?
