Beautifully restored - shame about the packaging,
By A Customer
This review is from: UFO - Volumes 1-4 Collector's Edition  [DVD] (DVD)
5 out of 5 for the video and audio quality. 3 out of 5 for the packaging and not so special features.
The series has never looked so fresh - the video restoration is marvelous, with pin-sharp, fresh, well-saturated images that look like they were filmed yesterday.
The audio is equally impressive, and I'm delighted that nobody was tempted to follow the trend of Thunderbirds/Scarlet DVD releases which come with an optional (and not entirely successful) stereo soundtrack.
As ever with the Anderson releases, the animated menus are first rate: I love the section where Sky 1 zaps the UFO!
Less good is the packaging - graphically the cardboard case is fine, but it feels very flimsy and the slipcase is going to look pretty tatty after a few months. Oh well.
The 'special features' are reasonable, but nothing to get worked up about. The Deleted Scenes mainly take the form of stills rather than film, although it's interesting to see the original (much bloodier) opening sequence to Episode 1.
