UFO - A Really Corking Sci-Fi Show, 8 July 2002
I will admit that I am more of a Supermarionation fan. Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet, and the Secret Service were always my favorites. But I made the decision to buy UFO on DVD, and I am so glad that I did. The hour-long episodes come out in great quality and the content itself is hardly dated after thirty years. The show isn't flawless - the disappearances of supporting characters can be rather annoying and strange, as it always goes completely unexplained - and the special features are sparse (I was hoping for more deleted scenes, but I will admit that the production stills, character bios, and machinery details are interesting). However, it features a priceless commentary from creator Gerry Anderson itself that I only discovered a few days ago. As soon as I'm ready to waste more of my money on thirty-year-old sci-fi shows, I'm buying part 2. I give it my highest recommendation!
