Space 1999 Season One Outstanding,
This review is from: Space: 1999 - Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Network like with all their DVD release really puts out a great product. Whether it be the restored "Strange Report," or others, Network strives to achieve something special.
With the release of Space 1999, Season One, Network has not disappointed. The picture and sound are incredible. Remastered to DD 5.1, but the discs retain their original mono sound if you prefer. The picture as other commentators have indicated is a light year improvement over previous releases. These discs are simply the best release ever of Space 1999. These would include previous releases like VHS, laserdisc, and the earlier DVD. The picture is amazing, and restored to extreme clarity.
My only two criticisms are: one, the meager extras. While new and interesting, we feel like they are lacking in this area. Therefore, hold onto your previous DVD's for the extras to augment this release. Two, my other criticism is the lack of a scenes menu, but the episodes are still chaptered, so you can still move through the episodes. Lastly, my only other complaint, is the lack of a subtle subtitle option.
A terrific new DVD release of a "classic" Seventies science fiction show, that helped us all to look inside ourselves as the inhabitants of Moonbase Alpha looked outwards into a greater universe for a deeper understanding, and a home.
