Based on an idea by Gene Roddenberry, Andromeda wears its debt to Star Trek on its sleeve, recalling the best sci-fi of Roddenberry's heyday. Kevin Sorbo (ex-Hercules) plays Captain Dylan Hunt, the sympathetically flawed idealist in command of the Andromeda Ascendant, a massive 1.4-kilometer-long starship of the now-disbanded Systems Commonwealth. The fall of civilization has meant that although it ought to be a relic it remains the zenith of technological advancement. Episodes 6 to 10 make up this collection.

"Angel Dark, Demon Bright": Time travel is always a sci-fi series staple, but Andromeda needs it more than any of them. Any method (excuse!) to revisit Dylan's own time is explored, and "Angel Dark, Demon Bright" is therefore an important episode for two reasons. We see just how badly the Commonwealth had it coming in an enormous space battle; and we also perceive how potentially dangerous Trance is. Pruning the branches of time as easily as her plants, she's clearly a conundrum waiting to explode.

"The Ties That Blind": The title is a dual reference to aspects of faith. On the one hand there's Rev's devout following of the Way, which unwittingly obscures certain truths from him; on the other hand there's the belief that blood is thicker than water, which severely confuses the relationship Beka has with her long-lost con-artist brother Rafe (Cameron Daddo). There's a lot of art imitating life in this episode, with the Restorian's tactics clearly mirroring contemporary religious conflicts.

"The Banks of the Lethe": Proving that all's fair in love and war, this episode demonstrates the familial possibilities of syndicated TV. Firstly, Sorbo's real-life wife plays Dylan's fiancée, Sara. Secondly, the story was originally touted to Star Trek: Voyager. It's another time-travel quickie (told you they were important), in which a touching reunion for the Sorbos is made possible thanks to a botched experiment in Harper's lab. This installment is also distinguished for featuring some of the most surreal humor in dealing with time travel since Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure.

"A Rose in the Ashes": Sometimes diplomacy just doesn't work. On the planet Arazia, Dylan implores the government to join his Commonwealth. Deemed traitors for suggesting it, he and Rommie's "living doll" incarnation are sent to a harsh prison planet. This was the first show to utilize exterior locations, which makes for a welcome change. The same is also true about seeing Lexa Doig in a leather-studded bikini top and disco pants.

"All Neptune's Great Oceans": Macbeth is paraphrased in the title of this spotlight episode for Tyr. The endlessly surly muscle man is accused of assassinating a visiting president. The crew sleuth out clues and red herrings, making this a watered-down whodunit in the now well-established sci-fi tradition. --Paul Tonks

Part 2 of the Andromeda Saga, and it's a great ride. Video is sharp, audio is crisp, and its easy to navigate. Andromeda without commercials is definately the way to see it.
The down side? No closed captioning (really helpful when trying to steal a few minutes while the baby sleeps) and not enough commentary (only on 1 episode out of 5?? Come on, Kevin, you can talk more than that!!)
All in all, a definite buy for the sci-fi fan; and not bad for anyone else.

Andromeda, as a series, has hit it's high point and has been running down since the second season. However, the first season remains FANTASTIC. With Robert Hewitt Wolfe writing the series, and the phenomenal acting of the cast, you can expect great lines delivered with a lot of cool and style. Notably, Keith Hamilton Cobb as the [tough guy] of the Universe and Lexa Doig doing triple duty in every episode as the ship, hologram, and computer, all of which she manages to imbue with their own personality. I single them out for excellency, but the entire cast is good in this show. I recommend buying the DVDs right up to season 2 episode 12, which was the last one featuring Wolfe as head writer, and the beginning of the show's downturn.
The commentary could be better, with (I believe) Alan Eastman boring us with show facts that are blatantly obvious to anyone who's watched - But Kevin Sorbo pipes up when he's allowed to, and actually has some good stories to tell. His antics in the gag reel are by themselves enough reason to buy this DVD :-P

"Andromeda Season 1, Vol.2" is a great DVD. Besides the fact Andromeda is great show. The DVD is loaded with a lot extra features including: Bloopers,Commentary,Character profiles, and episodes in wide-screen. These DVD are great value for any fan of the show or someone just discovering it.

Angel Dark, Demon Bright is a climatic episode in the Andromeda series. It involves Harper's Fusion catalyst, which will stun you with its effects as well as some great poetic lines from Rev and Tyr. It is by far one of the best episodes in this DVD Volume. In this Volume you also get 2 other great episodes, "The Ties That Blinds" which includes Beka Valentines brother and "The Banks of the Lethe" where Dylan reunites with his wife Sarah 303 years ago. This series in my opinion is better than the first because now the show is picking up and almost at the current level of excitement! I hope you enjoy the DVD and hope the review is helpful to you.

I normally do not go out of my way to follow television series too often, but a few do stand out and deserve attention. This is definately one of them. I enjoyed the acting of Kevin Sorbo and Keith Hamilton Cobb. This combined with the storyline, which is a little better than quite a few out there, make this a very enjoyable series to watch.
