Product Description

Product Description

Episodes 15 to 18 from the second season of the popular sci-fi series. In 'Dance of the Mayflies' the crew come under siege from some plague carriers. 'In Heaven Now are Three' has Dylan, Beka and Trance on the trail of the Engine of Creation. 'The Things We Cannot Change' finds Dylan floating close to death in an alternative reality. 'Fair Unknown' sees the crew encounter the founders of the Commonwealth.

From Amazon.co.uk

Based on an idea by Gene Roddenberry, Andromeda wears its debt to Star Trek on its sleeve, recalling the best sci-fi of Roddenberry's heyday. Kevin (ex-Hercules) Sorbo, plays Captain Dylan Hunt, the sympathetically flawed idealist in command of the Andromeda Ascendant, a massive 1.4 KM long starship of the now-disbanded Systems Commonwealth. The fall of civilisation has meant that although she ought to be a relic she remains the zenith of technological advancement.

When the show focuses purely on Tyr, we can always be sure of certain eventualities. There will be glistening displays of muscle, questioned loyalties and some sort of humbled reconciliation with Dylan. This time his erratic behaviour is influenced by the "Music of a Distant Drum" which takes him to the planet Midden and a family of fishmongers. The episode gets to look at the character from the inside out due to a complete memory loss.

Never, never, never pick up a floating life pod. When will characters in SF series learn this? The dire result of doing so this time is an impressive "Harper 2.0". Gordon Woolvett hasn't had many opportunities to shine thus far. But here we see him talking in multiple languages and contrasting his general surfer wise-cracking with sharp intellect and a mean streak. We also get a glimpse of what it is that's so feared about the Magog in battle.--Paul Tonks --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

Andromeda is a good sci-fi series. Its imaginative (at least compared to the usual drivel you get on TV, before some other series' fanboy tries to jump down my throat), it looks lovely, and the acting is at a good standard (with the general exception of Tyr, although thats not to say he's bad).

The episodes are in a largely self-contained but at the same time follow a general story arc. Its pretty much bang-on the middle between Star Trek (original series) and Battlestar Galactica (the new series) in that respect; if you didnt like the way the arc (or lack thereof) was done in those series or ones like them, then Andromeda provides a good middle ground for a series that both knows where its going but doesnt focus its entire attention on that.

There are some problems with it though. It doesnt have the deep meaning of something like Babylon 5 or (to a lesser extent) Galactica. It's pure sci-fi, nothing more, nothing less. The episodes also continuously feel like theyre trying to cram too much into themselves. I literally cant think of an episode where I didnt get a sense that it should have run to 50 minutes rather than 45; ive never actually come across a series of this type that has that problem, certainly not so consistantly. This leaves it feeling at best like a series thats been let down by the rigid nature of TV conventions, and at worst it feels slightly incoherent (but not enough to say that its _bad_ for it). I also found Season 5 somewhat... odd; whilst I havent seen it all, a friend who has assures me it remains much like that. I do realise that suddenly finding arguably your second most vital character unavailable due to real-life pregnancy does somewhat deaden what you can do with a series (not that I hold it against Lexa Doig).

Andromeda is one of Gene Roddenberry's best tv series. The Commonwealth spanned three galaxies and a myriad of cultures. Dylan Hunt, captain of the starship Andromeda, was frozen in time and awoke three centuries later to find the Commonwealth had fallen. To fight back the chaos among the stars, Hunt must use the Andromeda to restore the Commonwealth and bring unity to the galaxy once again. He recruits a mercenary, Tyr Anasazi, and the crew of the Eureka Maru: Captain Beka Valentine, Engineer Seamus Harper, Physicist Rev Bem, and Medical Officer Trance Gemini. After discovering the Spirit of the Abyss and its powerful weapon, the Magog Worldship, the need for the Commonwealth is greater than ever. 50 member worlds are finally recruited, and the reconstruction of the Commonwealth is finally truly underway.

This collection was very good. The only reason it did not get 5 stars, Is the way the dvds are packed into the cases. stacking discs on top of each other ( up to 3 on the same holder at times ). Forces you to bend the disc as you try to get each one out.

the first DVD was a little tame but this is good. Lexa Doig gets to show off a little in all to human, good battles with neichians in una salus victus. Home fires gives us the chance to see what the commonwealth was like with a visit to a planet that survived the fall. DVD 2 picks up the pace. James masters joins the crew for the best episode of the set Into the labyrinth which brings together all the member worlds of the commonwealth for a "party" and treaty signing but an enemy lurks within. The prince gives a classic dylan vs Tyr arguments each with diffrent goals and another chance for the planetry warfare bots to get an outing.

Had an issue with Amazon delivery, they attempted to deliver the package at 6.25pm to a work address which was obviously closed. When I questioned them I was told they can deliver to 9pm to residential addresses, this was even though I had explained the address WASN'T a residential address. They at least refunded the postage.

As for the item itself I love the series and had up to the end of Season 2 on other DVD's but it was cheaper to buy this than the remaining three other seasons. However I am not impressed with the package I received. It is a cheap cardboard case with two cheap plastic containers inside. Seasons 1-3 in one container, and seasons 4-5 in the other. Two DVDs stacked on top of each other to make sure they all fit in the case. When I opened the package that was wrapped in plastic I found no damage to the cardboard outer container, but one of the inner plastic holders had its outer plastic slit open somehow as if by a knife. Inside both containers several discs had come lose and were rattling around. Luckily they seem to have received only light scratching which doesn't seem to have impaired their performance.

The visual quality of these discs when played is not the best by a long shot and as I have watched the first two seasons on my other DVDs I can tell the difference immediately. The visuals are not as sharp or clear, writing is hard to make out at the start of the episodes where you always get a quote whereas as previously on the other DVDs I owned it was crystal clear. This all makes it less than I had hoped for, but doesn't take away to much from watching the series. I had just hoped for better quality.
