Fantastic series, shame about the extras,
By A Customer
This review is from: Survivors: The Complete Series 2 [DVD] (DVD)
I saw bits of all three series of Survivors when I was a teenager and the memory of them has haunted me to this day. I was given series one last Christmas, and was more than pleased to get series two this festive season.
To say "they don't make'em like that any more" is a cliché, but in this case it's true. To have the luxury of three runs of 13 episodes to explore the complex issues arising from a post-plague society would be unthinkable these days.
Of course the production looks much less slick than present day offerings, but for its time this was top notch telly. So buy both series and look forward to series three.
I only wish the DVD producers could have run to using a professional interviewer to conduct the interviews with cast members and production team. Oh and when you use more than one camera, it's best to make sure that both are properly white balanced. The production values of the extras were in stark contrast to the 13 programmes on the discs, and it seems unnecessarily penny-pinching not to have done a proper job. Perhaps series three might learn from this? Hope so.
