5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite miniseries of all time! September 20, 2011
Format:DVD
In the 70s a lot of bestselling books were made into excellent miniseries. This first aired in 1977 and was one of my favorite miniseries. I've been waiting for this to come out on DVD for a long time. The acting and plot are stellar and the scenery is beautiful.

This story takes place in a plush Colorado ski resort in the 1960s. It involves illicit sex, corruption, desire, and murder -- things that make up any good miniseries.

It revolves around the sensational trial of accused rapist-killer Lee Bishop, played by the wonderful Perry King (Rip Tide, Melrose Place, Mandingo). Bishop is a handsome young drifter who is arrested, tried and sentenced to die for the rape/murder of a 15-year-old girl -- a crime for which he is innocent.

Tom Keating, played by the great Sam Elliott (Roadhouse, The Sacketts, Legacy, Lifeguard, Once an Eagle) is his friend and straight-arrow attorney trying desperately to prove his innocence and find the true killer.

Elliott and King are joined by a truly amazing cast, including the beautiful Michelle Phillips, Gene Barry, Bo Hopkins, Anthony Franciosa, Roger Davis, Joseph Cotten, Jessica Harper, John Houseman and many others.

The series was beautifully filmed on location in the winter playground of the rich and famous -- Aspen, Colorado. The picturesque scenery and wonderful cast add up to a very beautiful, suspenseful and well-acted mini-series.

Executive producer Roy Huggins, (The Virginian, Maverick, The Fugitive, The Rockford Files, 77 Sunset Strip) was known for his outstanding work, and Aspen is no exception.

This sprawling 3-part miniseries covers the years as Bishop sits on death row, while his attorney and friend, Tom, tries to prove his innocence.

5.0 out of 5 stars ASPEN: Mini-Series with Sam Elliott December 16, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Bought this DVD of ASPEN: with Sam Elliott, because I really like Sam. I was not disappointed. It was a very good movie. Everyone who has watched this movie really liked it.
The story is a good one. There is a murder of a young girl, the wrong man is accused of murdering her and sent to Prision on Death row. Sam takes over his defence and he doesn't disappoint you. Lots of twist and turns in the movie. You like Sam Elliott, you will like this movie, he is true to form. Wish I could find more like it. I would recommend this move to anyone. Good acting, Good story.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Heavy Snowed in Aspen January 2, 2012
Format:DVD
In 1977, the televion mini-series was king... Roots, Rich Man, Poor Man: The Complete Collection, Centennial: The Complete Series and others. There were no DVDS, VHS tape were expensive. People would enjoyed and were rivited in pot-boilers like Aspen.

As a film, Aspen was a three night fest of murder and mayhem, Tom Keating (Sam Elliot), an attorney who defense Lee Bishop (Perry King) for killing a 15 year old.

The pilot of this tele-film seems like well worn Perry Mason episides. Sorry Sam, You are NO Raymond Burr. Perry King seems to over play his role as Bishop.

AS a film is does seem over-long. However in the late 1970's, this is standard three night gig for a mini series. So understand it was drawn out due to its format of what it was used for.

The trick about the mini-series of the 1970 and 1980s is the film is fill the show with many guest appeances of familar stars in smaller roles. Aspen's guest cast includes such actors John (The Paper Chase: Season One) Houseman, Gene ( Burke's Law: Season 1 - Volume 1 (First 16 Episodes))Barry, Anothony Franciosa, Roger (Dark Shadows) Davis, Joseph Cotton, and Bo (Dynasty) Hopkins,

This tele-film tranfer to DVD is not the cleanest master recording I have seen. So the TV film seem muddled and washed out in its trasmission onto DVD.

It is worth watching if you are a fan of legal thrillers or Sam Ellott. Otherwise miss this piece and watch Perry Mason or Matlock.

3.0 out of 5 stars Aspen January 27, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I never had seen the entire series, so bought it for that reason. Sam Elliott is great, as always, and totally makes the show. Some of the plot and the drug/power culture get tiring. And the annoying statement from the brother that the heros of Vietnam were killers of innocents is totally disgusting. Hollywood again pushing it's anti-American propaganda.

But the part Sam played was good, of a man standing up for what he should and then doing it. And the convicted playboy learned to stand on his own two feet also and may actually make something out of his life.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting story, bad Blu Ray February 24, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
I first got this Blu Ray when it came out. Unfortunately, TMG put very little effort into this Blu Ray. The bitrate for the disc ranges from 6.5Mbps to 11.9Mbps, which is extremely low for Blu Ray (your average HD broadcast on cable, satellite or OTA averages around the 11-12Mbps, and most sports channels averaging a 14-15Mbps rate, while your average Blu Ray is around 23-26Mbps). The picture quality ranges from soft to over-saturated, and the print shows tons of dirt and scratches (EDIT: portions of Part 3 appear to have come from worn-out standard-definition videotape); it's a 4:3 transfer.

The audio is also mediocre, with a Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono 48khz 192 Kbps transfer.

Overall, the story is more interesting in the write-up.

3.0 out of 5 stars TV Series
The saving grace of this TV series is Sam Elliott's performance. The story is just average, but the scenery is nice, and Sam's performance is very good.
