Product Description

Product Description

Four more episodes of Gerry Anderson's live action sci-fi series. In 'Hate Street', Brogan and Haldane are assigned to find murderer and race riot organiser Burl Flak, but find their investigation hampered by the presence of Brogan's old flame, bounty hunter Erika Brandt. 'Friends' sees Jane kidnapped by friends of computer hacker Reeve Pataki in order to secure his release. In 'Smelter Skelter', Brogan attempts to track down the perpetrators of an armed bank robbery during which Sally and Liz were threatened. 'The Forever Beetle' sees Brogan and Haldane assigned to investigate the theft of a rare beetle capable of cell regeneration.

From Amazon.co.uk

Space Precinct is one of the oddest science-fiction shows ever. Launched at the same time as Babylon 5, and looking like a cross between that series and Blade Runner (1982), it is like B5 about a group of interplanetary peacekeepers on a space station around an alien planet. Except that, rather than any extrapolated SF future, an entire New York police unit has been transferred into space, lock, stock and two smoking raygun barrels. Produced by Gerry Anderson, the result seems too adult for children, too juvenile for adults. "Double Duty", the first episode, for example, involves our cop heroes hunting the alien monster that is slaughtering Demiter City's drug dealers, and the copious blood and one particular sexual reference suggest an adult show at odds with the nice children, cute aliens, comic relief robot and simplistic scenario.

On the plus side, the special effects are especially lavish by TV standards, and the "Making of" documentary offers an interesting if brief introduction to modern SFX. Human actors wearing complex animatronic alien heads suggest aspects of Anderson's puppet shows (Stingray, Thunderbirds) meeting his live action series (UFO, Space 1999). Technically accomplished, Space Precinct is a genuine curiosity in search of a cult-audience. --Gary S. Dalkin --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
This Volume 11 & 12 set contains both of the two-part episodes, "The Fire Within" and "Deathwatch". As with nearly every episode in this classic series, they are both excellent, and could teach the best fantasy/sci-fi of today (Buffy, Star Trek) quite a bit about plot structure and direction. If Space Precinct had a failing, it was the lack of continuous plot - there wasn't much carried on from one episode to the next in terms of relationships and character interaction. "Deathwatch" addresses this, and brings the whole thing to a very satisfactory end, even though its two episodes are probably the series' worst. It's great that Space Precinct is finally being properly released (after an abortive VHS attempt in 1995), and any true sci-fi fan will snatch it up!

When I first watched this series a few years back now, I fell in love with it. Gerry Anderson has been thrilling kids of all ages for years, with his various puppet series, Thunderbirds, Stingray,etc. Now he is thrilling a more teenage audience! There are some great stories in the series, and the special effects and make up are fantastic! Look forward to many more of them, but sadly I dont think there will be! Pity.

Gerry Anderson's first spate of DVD Videos starts with Space Precinct and what a start! Originally shown on Sky in 1995, the programme was a great success yet only made the one season. A mixture of Gerry's traditional models and live-action sequences make the story lines great - and as always, huge explosions in true Gerry Anderson style. A must see for any Sci-Fi fan! And there's more to come... there are plans to make a second season next year!

I watched this a long time ago, and although its a little hard to believe, its still good far fetched fun! Set in the year 2040 in New York it features cops Brogan and Haldane, in a police precinct in outer space. Made by Gerry Anderson, it has some really weird characters and oddballs, but is still worth watching. May the force be with you!

Format: VHS Tape
This tape has the two best episodes of 'Space Precinct'. Both are lightweight fun and are suitable for all ages. In the 1st episode 'Two Against the Rock' Jack Haldane and Jane Castle are trapped in a prison where the inmates are taken over, they have to evade the prisoners and take back control while fighting their attraction to each other. In the second episode 'Takeover', Brogan is accused of murder and when Castle and then Haldane give damning evidence against him, he has to find out who has framed him and how they have turned his trusted collegues against him. Cosy sci-fi.

Space Precinct was only ever on when i was too young to understand it but recently i remembered it and decided to get one on dvd. I was not dissapointed! The show is just as good as i remember. The special effects are also very good for a t.v. show, especially in 1995.

Double Duty is a very dark episode in which Brogan and Haldane go after an assasin killing drug dealers in Demeter city. *****

Protect and Survive is lighter and more fun. Brogan and Haldane must protect a witness to a murder, who is the only person capable of putting a dangerous criminal behind bars. ****

Although it does not have many special feature, this dvd is definitely worth it.
