From Amazon.co.uk

When it was made there had never been a more lavishly produced science fiction TV series than Space: 1999, which was British-made on a first-season budget of 3.25 million pounds and ran for two seasons from 1975-77. What keeps fans enthralled after all these years has only partly to do with the first-rate production values, the plausibly constructed spaceship models and expert special effects. The tone of the show is one of scientific dispassion, setting it apart from its TV SF predecessors such as Star Trek in which the mood is more generally convivial. Our heroes here are in dire circumstances that require cool heads as a survival trait: the moon and the 311 crew members of Moonbase Alpha experience a cataclysm, which causes the moon to break away from Earth orbit and travel endlessly through space. No TV series has created a more palpable feel of hard science fiction than this. Of course the show is not without its detractors, having been soundly lambasted for its many scientific errors. No less august a figure than Isaac Asimov criticised the show for the premise of the opening episode "Breakaway", which had nuclear explosions on the "dark side of the moon" somehow propelling it out of Earth orbit and flying through space without regard to any physical laws. And in "Earthbound" aliens travelling to Earth state it will take them 75 years to reach their destination, making one wonder why it didn't take the moon that long to encounter the aliens. While these are valid complaints, fans tend to remember the scientific seriousness of the series and the sense of awe created by the many strange creatures and phenomena the crew encounter on their journey through the Galaxy. --Jim Gay, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This highly ambitious - if scientifically implausible -series has blasted onto DVD in three volumes - also collected as a box set - from Carlton video. Each disc carries four remastered episodes in production order.
I am hard to impress, but, having viewed the discs, I am literally stunned. The prints are faultless, bursting with a vibrancy unseen since the original transmissions. Colours are solid and natural, and it is now time to burn those shoddy drop out ridden VHS copies that we all bought in the 90's! This is Space 1999 as it should be seen.
Not even the BBC's remastered prints can hold a candle to these newly refurbished copies - which could have been filmed last week, let alone over a quarter of a century ago!
Obvious love and attention has gone into all three volumes and whilst brief the extras are worth a look too. Be prepared for nifty animated menus and a fantastic "this disc" parody of the "this episode" title cards.
If I could I would give these discs - Carlton's best yet - six stars!Buy these discs immediately!

I remembered Space 1999 from when I was a kid, specifically the music to series 2. After the BBC screened the series in it's entirety a few years ago I was hooked. The quality of the DVD is excellent - no doubt helped by the fact the original series was recorded on film. Stories such as 'Breakaway' and 'Earthbound' are classic examples of TV Sci-Fi. If only I could find a model of those wonderful Eagle spacecraft !Highly recommended.

Carlton have done a terrific job of transfering Space 1999 to DVD. The quality of each of the twelve episodes in the box-set is quite simply exilent, far better than the previously released VHS versions from a few years ago. The opening menu and "This Disc" brought a smile to this fans face. The extras are informative but a behind-the-scenes feature would have been a welcome addition. I look forward to volumes 4,5&6 of season one. For me, Space 1999 was always better than any Star Trek series and far more exiting!

Ratings are always personal, but objectively Space 1999 has represented one of the greatest (and sadly enough, less imitated) science fiction series of all time.
Some episodes may now seem a bit dated, but this does not render things less fascinating.

Dubbed in German with no English subtitles, awful tacky 3D, a real disappointment. This series deserved better & could have been amazing in 3d with a little TLC. I doubt any of the actors are impressed with this mess. Don't waste your money like I did!

Space 1999 was one of those shows I remembered from my childhood, particularly the opening theme tune and the montage of images, my favourite being the eagle spinning round and slamming into the moon's surface.
I bought this box set even though I had every episode on video from the time ITC released it originally, needless to say those videos have gone because the DVD releases are superb!
From the moment the eagle does a fly by you know you are in for something special and Carlton have done a masterful job of remastering the series. Each episode looks fantastic, colour and sound is superb and the special effects somehow look better.
The special features are also high quality and I would urge any fan of Space 1999 to go out and buy this now! You won't be disappointed

Why do Amazon mix in reviews of unrelated releases? This is about the German 3D Bluray. Short and sweet. The 3D is very poor , the source materials are not very good either and ignore the specs on the box - this title does NOT include English audio on the episodes.
You can get equally ineffective 3D by playing your regular 2D Bluray and pressing the 3D button on your tv remote.

Takes me back to Sundays, sure it was a Sunday, about midday when this used to be shown on mainstream telly.
Really enjoying it all over again !..lovin' the stun guns - they do look like staple guns from a D.I.Y. shop, and those Eagle spaceships..I remember I had a toy one as a kid :) Yeah, bring it on at..It's all at Moonbase Alpha.. Space 1999 for us oldies who want to be kids again..I always remember Barbara Bain as she spun round in the credits and her hair-that never moved ! and am really looking forward to seeing Maya again as the camera zooms into her eyes - YIKES !!what's she gonna be this time ? ! Courageous Commander Koenig and Barry Morse as the man with the frizzy professor like hair..all of them, the whole gang sticking together as the Moon travels the universe hoping to find it's way back home..ahhhh....
This is the mentality of all this and I'm laughing at what I've just written and yes, I'm guarding my newly arrived boxset, and no one can borrow it, it's mine !!! coz I've waited over 30 years for this to arrive in the post!!
I'm collecting DVD's of telly progs I watched when I was a kid and Gerry Anderson shows are top of my list. Watching Space 1999 back to back with 'Secret service'(another classic with a secret agent clergyman !), I must take my hat off to Mr Anderson and to his creative vision which made kids tv before teatime and on a Sunday so interesting and exciting during my childhood. Thanks again :) 10/10 Gerry
