5.0 out of 5 stars pat 6 Dec 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
an excellent video, not only is the acting good, the episodes are in color and have been quality enhanced with better viewing. A hard to find classic sitcom with good taste no graphic violence, sex, or profanity at all and still very entertaining, i hope they start marketing more 60's and 70's sitcoms.

5.0 out of 5 stars Favorite Martian, Favorite Video 29 Nov 1999
By John Cronce - Published on Amazon.com
It's hard to remember the old "My Favorite Martian" TV series being in color, but it was -- during its final season. These rare color episodes are a treat for anyone who grew up watching the original series. Take a trip back to an innocent time -- and if you can, take someone with you who's never been there. It's fun for the whole family.

4.0 out of 5 stars Return From the Past. 17 Jan 2007
By tvtv3 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
MY FAVORITE MARTIAN was only on regular television for three years, but had a huge impact upon the popular culture of the time; it launched the careers of two actors and was one of the few shows that both fans of sci-fi and Westerns enjoyed. The show starred Bill Bixby (who later went on to be David Banner in THE INCREDIBLE HULK) as Tim O'Hara, a low-rung journalist whose life changes forever when a flying saucer containing a Martian (Ray Walston) lands on the roof of the garage apartment he lives in. The Martian's ship is severely damaged and he can't return home until he fixes his ship. The Martian, who has powers of levitation and retractable antennae in his head, disguises himself as a human, moves in with Tim, and takes up the identity as his Uncle Martin. Bixby and Walston have some amazing chemistry and had the duo worked in things other than this series, they could have been as big as Abbott and Costello or Burns and Allen. Walston received a great deal of critical acclaim in life, but Bixby was a great actor who never did receive the acclaim and recognition he should have.

This DVD has four episodes all in color. Each of the episodes revolves around Uncle Martin's time machine that he invented. "Go West Young Martian, Go West (parts 1 and 2)" is a two episode story where Martin and Tim are sent back in time to St. Louis, Missouri in 1849. However, the time machine is in California and the pair have to get their way there, but without changing history. In "Martin Meets His Match" Martin brings back Leonardo Da Vinci to the present to assist Martin in working on his spaceship. Finally, in "Pay the Man the 24 Dollars" Tim learns an important lesson about not messing around with history just to do historical research.

I enjoyed watching all four of these episodes. They are only about 30 minutes in length each, so it takes around two hours to watch the entire DVD. This is a great way to introduce someone to MY FAVORITE MARTIAN or as a token gift for fans of the original series.
5.0 out of 5 stars Only 4 episodes! 29 Sep 2007
By Quality Man - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This is a great DVD to have. Although there are only four episodes on the disc, (not very good value) they have been 'colorized' it like they did with "Bewitched - The First season".

The DVD transfer is good. Not brilliant, but good. Picture is not as sharp as "The Flying Nun", "Partridge Family" and "Brady Bunch", but very watch able indeed. Well worth adding to your collection as it may be the only DVD version of these episodes in color. (The episodes on this disc were originally filmed in B&W)

Simple packaging with no inserts or inside pic. Menu is simple with no music. Weird episode selection. The highlight color is almost identical to the menu color, so it's hard to know what selection you're making.

I think this disc may well become a collector's item in years to come.

Do yourself a favour. You won't be sorry.
