Reviews

The complete first season of the American sci-fi drama, created by Gene Roddenberry. In the early 21st century, a peace-loving alien race known as the Taelons arrive on Earth to share their knowledge and technology with mankind. But some people remain suspicious of the Taelons' true intentions and form an underground resistance movement. Before long their worst suspicions are confirmed - the Taelons are not on Earth to spread peace, but to conquer. Includes all 22 episodes: 'Decision'; 'Truth'; 'Miracle'; 'Avatar'; 'Old Flame'; 'Float Like a Butterfly'; 'Resurrection'; 'Horizon Zero'; 'Scorpion's Dream'; 'Live Free or Die'; 'The Scarecrow Returns'; 'Sandoval's Run'; 'The Secret of Strandhill'; 'Pandora's Box'; 'If You Could Read My Mind'; 'The Wrath of Achilles'; 'The Devil You Know'; 'Law and Order'; 'Through the Looking Glass'; 'Infection'; 'Destruction'; and 'The Joining'.

Format: DVD
At long last, the first and absolutely best season of the posthumously produced Gene Roddenberry series, 'Earth: Final Conflict'. Due to issues of ownership of rights, seasons three, four and five were released long before seasons one and two; indeed, this is the advent of season one's availability, and season two is not yet available, but surely cannot be far behind.
This is the year that started the series, and is generally considered the best of the lot, both by those who liked the rest of the series, and those who disliked its later directions (I find myself somewhat in the latter category, but not dogmatically so).
The premise is that a race of aliens, named the Taelons, have come to Earth ostensibly to offer peace and technological exchange. Their technology cures almost all diseases, eliminates poverty and hunger, and causes a banding together of people in a new world order. However, there are those who mistrust the motives of the alien companions (and each major country has an ambassador known as 'the companion'), and an underground resistance has formed. In a rather interesting production decision, it is at this stage that we the viewers come into the story - we don't see the arrival or initial steps, but only the beginning of the rocky period.
One can look for parallels in history for this - were early colonisers, from Greek and Romans to modern nations, seen as invaders or friends? Even when the newcomers offered gifts and promises, things often worked differently.
In the first year of the series, the central character is William Boone (Kevin Kilner), a double-agent officially in service of the Taelon companions, but in reality a resistance agent.

Format: DVD
I'm admittedly a stalwart Earth: Final Conflict fan, but even if I wasn't, I think I'd be thrilled with this DVD set. The fan community is in general agreement that the first season is the most solid. It does tend to be a little more cerebral than its subsequent seasons, but in a very nicely-done way. It has its action moments, but they don't overpower the rest of the show, and because they're not prevalent, they tend to be that much more special when they are there.
Characters and developments are generally not outlandish: while many sci-fi shows will have a gadget-of-the-week which is never heard from again, season 1 E: FC on the whole avoids that particular pitfall. Characters also generally behave in a consistent (and sensible) way, which makes them more engaging, sympathetic and believable.
The special effects are exceptional for a first-time low(ish)-budget television production from 1997, though a few of the SFX shots do look quite dated in comparison to 2006 standards. Others still hold up very well.
The only slight gripe that I have is that you don't get a whole lot more than just the episodes. The strength of the episodes means that this is not much of a problem in the long run. It's very solid science-fiction, and tries not to patronise its audience or subject them to gung-ho action with be-catsuited women.

At last, on DVD, the Science fiction adventure from Star Trek creator, Gene Roddenberry.
An androgynous alien species called the Taelons arrive on earth, claiming to be companions of humanity, putting an end to crime, illness, and famine. Some are suspicious of the Taleons, and form a resistance movement. The resistance soon learned that the force that sustains the Taelons are breaking down, and they are using humans as test subjects in experiments to help save their species...

Format: DVD
Ok i watched this series from start to end when it aired here in the Uk and was blown away by it. Season 1 was by far the strongest and best Season of all containing deepely philosphic stuff. This season is the best the EFC ever peoduced with Season 2-3 comming in close. But by Season 4 and 5 the writers had last the plot in my opinion.

Great transfer from film to disk and there are only three or four FX Shots in the entire seaon that look like they needed work.

the only dissaponting thing about the box set is the lack of Special features, i.e. episode commentarys and interviews with cast and also the inability to select scenes for the episodes you only get a Play All or Play episode option and must use the fsatforward\rewind function to scan through to scene.

for a dedicated Scifi fan i would urge you to buy it as it is great scifi and like B5 the first season seamed to be like the chapter of a novel introducing you to the situation Season 2 didnt seam to continue the structure as things were radically chaanged by mid 2nd season to suit a different storyline. if you are cllecting the whole series this will be the season you watch the most times repeatedlt as a standalone it is also great as the ending of S1 feels like thend of a novel that you might not get a sequel to. i would have given this a 5 star but the lack of features forces me to give a 4
