At long last, somebody with some brains releases ALL of the legendary Arthur C Clarke series onto DVD. God bless those Aussies! Here, on 8 discs, you have MYSTERIOUS WORLD, WORLD OF STRANGE POWERS and MYSTERIOUS UNIVERSE. Okay, Mysterious Universe is a basic retread of the previous 2 series but with 10 - 15 years worth of scientific advances that solve a few mysteries, pose interesting new theories for others and - like human combustion - remain positively creepy!
Clarke remains sceptical and often bemused by many of the stories, but he is the perfect host for this quasi-scientific rubbish (and as Clarke would admit in his prologue to the book of World of Strange Powers, half of it is rubbish, they don't know which half, but it is the finest quality rubbish they could find!)
Picture quality and sound is variable, but generally fine, and this set includes the fire walking episode from World of Strange Powers that was oddly missing from the UK VHS release some years back.
For, literally, hours of creepy, puzzling and incredulous enjoyment, look no further and buy immediately. It's well worth the price!
