This brings back memories of watching this series with my dad when it was aired back on BBC2 probably sometime in the 80's.
Originally made around 1967 from the creator of The Streets of San Francisco, it is truly amazing how high quality this DVD set is. Sure there are some scenes where the film has been marked, but not badly, probably in production rather than later. However the vast majority is flawless and stunning in its colour reproduction quality. I have been amazed at the beautiful outdoor scenes and even studio sets, could have been made yesterday far les 40 years ago, just has not aged.
As for the content, this is not your average Sci-Fi program, all about tech and warp drives, this is all about the main character and his fight to be believed in a world that is hostile to his words of alien invasion.
This is more thriller than pure sci-fi and that is what makes this so unmissable, if you havent seen this your doing yourself a great disservice, get this now. If you have seen this, your a fan, I can almost guarantee it, that is how groundbreaking this series was and still is.
The stories draw you in, they are action packed and exciting and the human story, the sympathy for David Vincents plight will have you hooked.
There are only two words needed in this review. Get it.
