5.0 out of 5 stars Masters of Sci-Fi DVD
Marvelous DVD, the stories are great, wonderful mix of serious and comedic but all make you think. There are six hour long episodes over two discs, each episode is written by a different Sci-Fi writer or adapted from a short story, and directed by different directors (Johnathan Frakes even directs an episode). It features actors such as Judy Davis, John Hurt, Brian...

3.0 out of 5 stars Masters of Science Fiction
A nice collection of "old Fashioned SF " stories-- A bit like the Twilight zone in the 60's..
The production values were significantly better the the Twilight Zone but perhaps not as good as the very best you get today
An enjoyable way to spend an evening

Marvelous DVD, the stories are great, wonderful mix of serious and comedic but all make you think. There are six hour long episodes over two discs, each episode is written by a different Sci-Fi writer or adapted from a short story, and directed by different directors (Johnathan Frakes even directs an episode). It features actors such as Judy Davis, John Hurt, Brian Dennehy, Anne Heche, Sean Astin and Malcolm McDowell as well as others. If you are a fan of Sci-Fi then you'll greatly enjoy this DVD. It arrived within the estimated delivery date and there were no problems at all. All in all 5/5.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hit and Miss, 19 Jan. 2012

This review is from: Masters of Science Fiction [DVD] (DVD)
Some of these epoisodes are good.
Some of them are horribly malformed from the original short stories.
Some of them are squashed and chopped, others stretched out into paper-thin plots.
I like a couple of them, so they were worth the cheap price.
Others were incredibly annoying at the way they'd been chewed up, but hey, worth flicking through....
However, no surprise there was no season 2....

1.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic idea ruined., 28 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Masters of Science Fiction [DVD] (DVD)
The idea behind this show is fantastic: dramatize the best classic science fiction short stories, stories based ideas rather than action, with leading dramatic actors. The pitiful execution is a very sad failure that will make it much harder for this extremely promising concept to be carried out in the future.

I saw an episode on TV then shortly after I bought this DVD, I was skeptical at first as this one didnt do quite so well as Masters of Horror and got a cruddy review to boot...anyway as it turns out Masters of Sci-fi is worth your time, Mick Garris delivers another good show.

This review is from: Masters of Science Fiction [DVD] (DVD)
The idea of this collection is "back to basics" . The stories are more important than the form and though this is the essence of gold scifi the stories chosen do not have sufficient substance to make the episodes excel. I know I Am spoilt with all the good fx that are around but I was disappointed in more than one story. Still there is some good acting in the episode of the worker that escapes the factory and than faces judgement by a machine. I think this is reasonable but not super and if you can enjoy good moments and not let too simple endings spoil them then there is no objection to watching this.

This was a christmas stocking present for a sci fi fan - some of the series is good some a bit strange with hanging there endings but for all you get and the price still a nice gift for someone to add to their collection.
