SPACE 1999 AS IT SHOULD BE SEEN by Mark Hevingham,
By A Customer
This review is from: Space - 1999: Volumes 1-6 (Box Set) [DVD]  (DVD)
This highly ambitious - if scientifically implausible -series has blasted onto DVD in three volumes - also collected as a box set - from Carlton video. Each disc carries four remastered episodes in production order.
I am hard to impress, but, having viewed the discs, I am literally stunned. The prints are faultless, bursting with a vibrancy unseen since the original transmissions. Colours are solid and natural, and it is now time to burn those shoddy drop out ridden VHS copies that we all bought in the 90's! This is Space 1999 as it should be seen.
Not even the BBC's remastered prints can hold a candle to these newly refurbished copies - which could have been filmed last week, let alone over a quarter of a century ago!
Obvious love and attention has gone into all three volumes and whilst brief the extras are worth a look too. Be prepared for nifty animated menus and a fantastic "this disc" parody of the "this episode" title cards.
If I could I would give these discs - Carlton's best yet - six stars!Buy these discs immediately!

There is no way I am paying the grossly inflated price that is being asked for season two.

Well I solved it shortly after making that post. The full quality series two has cost me £10.99. I have downloaded all of the episodes via itunes onto my iPad and main computer. I'm now in the process of making my backup copy onto DVDs. The idiots charging that ridiculous money have lost a sale at a realistic price.
I should add, I do not believe that all those people posting a review actually paid the ridiculous price being presently asked.
