I particularly like the music, I think this was restored and the picture quality is excellent, really fined tuned with tender loving care. Can't wait for Year 2 to be given the VIP makeover!! So fly me to the moon and give me a comlock! I am ready to watch this DVD Boxset again and again!!
1) To get a scratch free set, I had to order FOUR sets so beware, check your discs. Network do appear to have a problem in this area.
2) The case manufactured by Scanavo is a problem with disc extraction (known as the clasp of death to many)
3) Not all of the previous extras on the Carlton set are here meaning you have to retain your old set if wish to see them again.
If Network can sort out their quality control re scratched discs, they are THE BEST. Well done! Now, can the remaining companies start to produce quality like this?
SPACE:1999 remains one of the most controversial science fiction/fantasy series ever created... & I love it :-)
I can only hope that Network decide to release Year 2 and take the same amount of care over the restoration process that they have with Year 1 (you never know, we might even get to own "Message From Moonbase Alpha" - the definitive ending to the Alphan's long journey - & very moving it is too).
Buy this set, the presentation is laveish and the series itself contains some of the most beautiful and thought provoking episodes of the series. Highlights include: "Breakaway" (surely the most involving, stunning TV Series pilot ever filmed?), "Another Time, Another Place", "The Guardian of Piri", "Collision Cource", "War Games" and the mind booglingly scary and atmospheric "Dragon's Domain".
Even today, this is ground-breaking television on every level as the writers and actors go against every expectation and break every rule to create a series that truly stands on it's own.
The picture is absolutely *superb*. The audio is *phenominal*, especially in the area of the sub woofer. Without a doubt, worth every penny I paid for this set...it is absolutely AMAZING!
*This* is the way old TV series need to be remastered...it is *THAT* good.
I have the A&E Remasters from the USA (which I think are the same as the Carlton ones) which were OK, but man...these new Network remasters take the cake. The colors are vibrant, no grain or dust, the audio is phenominal. This is positively the way the creators of the series meant it to be seen. Just watch it on a big TV and see what I mean.
If you have the old discs...DUMP THEM...NOW! Compared to the new remastered editions it's like comparing caviar to canned tuna.
It's *THAT* good!
If anyone asked me to explain the great (very great!) appeal of SPACE: 1999 Year One, I'm not sure how I'd be able to do it. How can you convey the scope, imagination and depth of such a sophisticated television saga? Made in 1974 & 75, Year One of SPACE: 1999 is still utterly unique in the annals of television science fiction. At times poetic, ethereal and steeped in metaphysical musings, no other television production has offered such atmosphere without having to sacrifice content. SPACE: 1999 manages to combine both in equal measure, with every instalment offering up both answers and more questions to the issues raised - No single episode could ever be forgotten once seen & absorbed.
Of course, the original run of SPACE: 1999 was also a very scary experience to my amazed five-year old eyes. From the ambient music and sound design to some startling imagery, I fell in love with the series back then - Rather like DR WHO of the day, I knew SPACE: 1999 would be "spooky" and unsettling but I always felt compelled to watch anyway. It helped that the series looked so good, with the term "alien" being interpreted accurately to convey a style that was utterly different to anything else seen before (or since), and those EAGLE TRANSPORTERS were so cool to a spaceship-loving kid anyway!!
Another strength was the cast - A solid group of actors who took their roles seriously and injected both integrity and power into already fascinating scripts.Read more ›
