Product Description

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.

SPECIAL FEATURES
Includes bonus DVD containing an exclusive interview with writer and series consultant Stephen Gallagher

BUGS was for me the highlight of the weekends viewing. The opening theme music is exciting and by avoiding a contemporary high tech sound hasn't dated. It was fast paced fantasy set in the near future centred around electronic technology and lots of explosions. BUGS was a world away from the viewers reality underpinned by fiendishly clever plots and an eclectic team - pure and simple but believable escapism that you could relate to. The good guys and gal were Nick Beckett (ex Government operative), Ros Henderson (freelance electronics expert) and Ed (helicopter pilot/daredevil/martial arts expert). Nick worked for a secret establishment called the Hive and was set up as a fall guy by a senior colleague stealing a top secret satellite interference device. He sought the help of a Ros ,who was occasionally employed by the Hive as an electronic gadget expert, to clear his name. Ed was a friend of Ros and lived in the same apartment block and by coincidence had ferried the satellite interference device in his helicopter the day before. Needless to say Nick was cleared of wrong doing but chose to leave the Hive and accept Ros's proposal to become an independent security and surveillance consultant with her company Gizmo's. They went on to have adventures involving self flying aircraft, intelligent cars, submarines, foreign politicians and new food stuffs. The first series showed much promise but didn't quite get it 100% right. Primarily the villains were too pantomime, not altogether plausible or convincing because of over acting and because of the time slot some of the dialogue was a bit cheesy.Read more ›

Many a Bugs fan has been waiting for the DVD to come out, and if your a fan or just remember the series this is a must buy.
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.

This is one of the best series the BBC ever screened. It's up there with Jonathan Creek, Spooks, and the first two series of 24 that it screened.
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 have child-hood memories of sitting down with my coke on a saturday night and watching this exact show. So when I saw the entire lot was out on DVD I naturally purchased it.
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!!!!!

It's worth bearing in mind that most people reviewing this product will inevitably be fans of this cult series so you won't get much in the way of negativity. If you're a casual viewer not knowing what to expect from this show, it's worth bearing in mind that series one was transmitted in 1995 and 17 years on the "high tech" stuff is most definitely showing its age!

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.
