Product Description

In 1953, the war began: Martian invaders, bent on the conquest of Earth, destroy human civilisation as we know it, leaving death and panic in their wake.

If not for our planet's tiniest bacteria, they would have completely wiped human beings from the face of the planet. Captured and quarantined, the aliens' threat has been all but forgotten.

However, now, freed from captivity, they vow not to repeat their mistakes and finish what they started.

The only thing standing in their way is a small band of human resistance fighters... War Of The Worlds: The Complete First Season continues the story of alien aggression, human defiance and interplanetary war across 24 action-packed episodes. Let the battle begin!

5.0 out of 5 stars Studio should bring out Series two ' now ' 23 Mar 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a review of ' War of the Worlds ' TV series

At this price its fantastic value.

Synopsis -

According to the series, rather than being outright killed by germs at the end of the 1953 film, the aliens had all slipped into a state of suspended animation. Their bodies were stored away in toxic waste drums and shipped to various disposal sites within the United States (ten such sites are known to exist in the country ), and a widespread government cover-up combined with a condition dubbed "selective amnesia" has convinced most people that the invasion had never happened.

Since the concept of vastly intelligent life on Mars had lost its plausibility by the time of the series, the aliens are revealed to actually be from Mor-Tax--a garden planet 40 light-years away in the Taurus constellation orbiting a dying sun.

Thirty-five years later, in 1988 (modern day when the series began), a terrorist group calling themselves the People's Liberation Party accidentally irradiate the drums containing aliens while raiding dumpsite Fort Jericho. The radiation destroys the bacteria that are keeping the aliens unconscious. Once free, the aliens take possession of the bodies of the six terrorists that overran the site. From there they use a series of human bodies and crudely-adapted Earth technology to find means of appropriating the planet, both in purging the plague that is humanity and developing a permanent means to inoculate themselves against the planet's indigenous bacteria. Their attempt to successfully make Earth into their new homeworld is imperative for in roughly five years, three million colonists from Mor-Tax are expected to arrive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as I remembered 4 May 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This science fiction show was at the time it was made a miss match of science fiction and horror. By today's standards not really horror. Aliens taking over human bodies. Watching it now this show is not as good as I remember when I watch it on TV years ago. The stories are good to fair, special effects are not as you would expect today, but you cannot judge a show just by special effects. Not one of the best of science fiction shows but by no means one of the worst for the time it was made. I am waiting for the price of the second season to drop, before I purchase it. The second season change direction Earth society collapsing and the "team" working underground to fight the "second wave of aliens".

4.0 out of 5 stars One for the Turkey Lovers 8 April 2006
Format:DVD
This was one of those little gems hidden away in the tv schedules as it needed air time but was mostly pants. The acting is wooden, the sfx blue peter like and the storylines shambolic.
So why have I given it a 4 star rating? Because it is hypnotic. In its sheer awfulness you can not help but watch in awe. Someone actually wrote this, someone actually audition for this and someone actually paid for its production.
Ironhorse is a bit of eye candy though, dont by this expecting great television, buy it to be amused and bemused!
