5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Brilliant!!! Finally Season One on DVD!!!, 4 Feb 2008

This review is from: Flipper - Original Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Having recorded every episode from TV on VHS, it's a delight to see the light of day on quality DVD. And the picture quality is 10/10 considering it's age. The picture is crisp and sharp with vibrant colours. Unlike some shows Flipper was filmed on 35mm film and have been transfered to DVD by MGM who made this delightful TV Series. This TV show is family viewing at it's top with great storylines and underwater/Florida locations.

Featuring Luke Halpin (Sandy Ricks) from the original 'Flipper' 1963 film and it's sequel 'Flipper's New Adventure' (1964), the sucess and popularity spawned a three year TV Series spread over 3 seasons mounting to 88 Episodes.

Luke Halpin followed on into the TV Series, as well as the introduction of younger brother Bud Ricks (Tommy Norden). Brian Kelly who sadly passed away in 2003 played their father, Park Ranger Porter Ricks. As widower parent Porter Ricks does a fine job, as the storylines go which also touches topics including moral values without going into depth but are clearly shown on the surface of particular episodes from this first Flipper season which includes titles like 'Danger' 'City Boy' 'The Gulf Between'.

As for the DVD itself. There are 4 discs with 8 episodes on a 'one sided picture cover disc' unlike the region 1 version which is double-sided. As I mentioned before the picture quality is outstanding!!

Season 2 is expected sometime this year which will comprise of another 30 episodes. AND yet the same quality of stories!!

Whether your a nostalgic fan or for your family, Children of all ages will love Flipper!
