5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic string-vested and purple-wigged wonderfulness!, 11 Feb. 2008
This review is from: UFO - Volumes 5-8 Collector's Edition [DVD] [1970] (DVD)
This is just great. No, really. If you love a bit of classy t.v. history, this is well worth every penny. My only winge is that the packaging is cardboard...I expect packaging that is likely to still be with me in ten years time. This still gets 5 stars, as I'm reviewing the DVD, not the box it comes in.
The effects are very good (especially when one considers the shoddy effects the BBC were producing in Dr. Who at the time) and although the fashions are laughable (and clearly reflect the premise that everyone in the 60's and 70's thought future clothes would all be silver, with pointy breasts) they fit the show well (but not all the actors!)
Especially worth watching with a can of beer is the episode 'Mindbender', which was not shown in some of the more stuffy regional television centres in England as it was thought to be a reference to L.S.D. Granted, it is a bit whizzy and whacky, but in those days pop records would be banned if they had the word 'bed' in them. Due to this fact, this dvd comes with a 12 certificate. The idea of an 11 year old in 2002 being disturbed by ufo volume 5 to 8 is so laughable, I cherish it for days when I'm feeling a bit low. I seem to have strayed from my original point somewhat. Sorry. Ufo...a must have for the lover of fab t.v., even if it has purple wigs and string vests.
