The hi-tech BBC series, starring Craig McLachlan (Neighbours), Jaye Griffiths (The Bill) and Jesse Birdsall (Footballer s Wives).
First broadcast on BBC1 in 1995, BUGS follows the investigative adventures of Ed, Ros and Beckett as they track down callous saboteurs and ruthless assassins.
Ed (McLachlan) is a helicopter pilot, daredevil climber, and a martial arts expert; Ros (Griffiths) is as at home behind the wheel of a skidding car in a high speed chase as in front of a computer screen and Beckett (Birdsall) is always risking his life; imprisoned in a flooded submarine, defeating high-tech defence systems and defusing time-bombs with seconds on the clock.
Their enemies are corrupt politicians, international criminals, renegade scientists, dictators and megalomaniacs of all kinds.
Includes bonus DVD containing an exclusive interview with writer and series consultant Stephen Gallagher

The episodes are as great as always although the quality is the same as on tv.
The menu system is average and so is navigation.
The extras are the real let down with the package. Theres an extra disk but the information on it isn't anything special and the extras on the DVDs are things like photo galleries. DO NOT JUST BUY FOR THE EXTRAS
Overall, I loved this series on TV and the DVD is good vaule for money and great to watch.
The series started in the mid-90s (around 1995 I think), and so it sometimes shows it's age compared with the slick production values of many of today's programmes. That aside, the series is brilliant. It's a bit like the aforementioned Spooks in terms of using a host of electronic gadgetry to thwart the villain of each week's episode. It has the right mix of action, seriousness, and light-hearted moments- just perfect for the Saturday nights on which it was screened.
A word of warning: Don't expect a host of extras with this. All you get is a disc containing an interview with the series creator or producer or something like that, and also biographies of the characters. To be honest though, I'm never really too fussed with DVD extras, so this isn't really a negative point.
In conclusion: I got this set as soon as it was released, to remind me of being a teenager and transfixed by the gadgets and action. It's fun, exciting, and has stood the test of time. There are few more recent TV series that can match it. Enjoy!!!
I'm not gonna lie to you all. The special features are non-existent!!!! But the show itself is wholesome family entertainment. It's an under-rated, clever, imaginative TV show.
If you're like me, an old fan, then the boxset is perfect. As I have been watching I can remember whole chunks!! Must buy for fans!! Newcomers, why not give it a go?! :) Shame for the cancellation..... would have loved to see how that final cliffhanger turned out!!!!!
Also the plots even at the time were outrageously unbelievable, almost camp. Again, this is only amplified when viewed today.
Nonetheless there is so much to admire about this wonderful show that even the most cynical viewer would find it pretty addictive stuff.
The first thing to remember is the timeslot for Bugs - early Saturday evening. I used to watch it religously every week at university when getting ready to go out. Inevitably this means it is not particularly dark. It is wrongly seen as a precursor to Spooks. There are no goood guys getting bumped off in deep fat fryers here. There is a safe formula in place which sees the good guys winning and the bad guys either getting justice or their just desserts.
The second thing about the show which really stands out is that it was cleverly filmed mostly in and around London Docklands. The glass-fronted office buildings and apartment blocks in this area were cutting edge in design at the time and had only just been built, so the series has a futuristic feel. You get lots of shots of the driverless DLR trains, with Canary Wharf in the backgrounds, freshly bricked roads, brand new cars: all designed to help give the show its high-tech image.
Of course the gadgets by today's standards are totally out-dated.Read more ›
