Editorial Reviews

Embark on the quest to find a new home planet for humanity in the year 2192 as the complete sci-fi epic Earth 2 lands on DVD for the first time ever! From the producers of Miami Vice and ER comes the thrilling story of Devon Adair (Debrah Farentino), who is struggling to find a healthy environment for her deathly ill son, Ulysses. Disregarding government orders, she puts together an expedition to found a new civilization on an Earth-like planet 22 light years in the future. But after their ship crash-lands on the wrong side of planet G889, the "colonists" quickly discover that their new home already has some very strange and hostile inhabitants. Catch DVD-exclusive bonus features and join stellar guest stars including Tim Curry, Virginia Madsen, Terry O'Quinn and more on all 21 groundbreaking episodes of the Emmy-winning series that critics cheered "soars to new sci-fi heights" (Houston Chronicle).

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent, But Short-lived Sci-Fi TV Series May 17, 2005
By M. Hart
Format:DVD
Michael Duggan, Carol Flint, Mark Levin and Billy Ray created an interesting concept for a new sci-fi TV program. Airing in the fall of 1994, their show was entitled "Earth 2" and was set 200 years in the future. "Earth 2" painted a very dark future for mankind in which the Earth is no longer capable of supporting terrestrial life. Consequently, the surviving members of the human race have been living in orbiting space stations; but living in the sterile environments has created a sickness called the Syndrome. A wealthy woman named Devon Adair (Debrah Farentino) is convinced that the key to mankind's survival, including her Syndrome-infected son Ulysses 'Uly' Adair (Joey Zimmerman), is to once again live in a natural environment. Gathering 250 other Syndrome-infected families, she pursues the establishment of a colony on a planet named G889 orbiting a star 22 light-years away; but the current government has other plans for planet G889. Undeterred, Devon, her son and some of the other 250 families embark on a ship named "Eden Advance" for G889 to establish a community in advance of the main colonization; but the ship has been sabotaged. The ship arrives at G889, but the ship soon explodes. Stranded on G889, the ship's survivors attempt to settle and begin new lives on G889. The survivors include Devon, Uly, engineer John Danziger (Clancy Brown), his daughter True (J. Madison Wright), pilot Alonzo Solace (Antonio Sabato Jr.), Dr. Julia Heller (Jessica Steen), Earth-government representative Morgan Martin (John Gegenhuber), his wife Bess (Rebecca Gayheart) and Uly's cyborg teacher Yale (Sullivan Walker).

Unfortunately, lower than expected ratings for the series caused its cancellation after its first season; so only a total of 22 episodes were ever produced.

4.0 out of 5 stars corrected episode order for viewing January 2, 2006
Format:DVD
I was thrilled to see that an old favorite show that was killed too soon had finally come out on DVD. I really think it holds up very well 10 years later. Excellent acting via all the cast, and the beautiful N.M. outdoor settings certainly help. Though I am happy this is out, it is indeed unfortunate that there are not more extras on the DVD and that the episodes are listed in broadcast order (which is not really the correct viewing order). A poster on the boards of the internet movie database website provided the list below as the correct order to view the episodes, which I agree with:

The definitive order in which events occur in the series:

(numbers indicate the days since the crash according to Devon's journal)

Pilot (First Contact)

The Man Who Fell To Earth (Two)

Life Lessons

Promises, Promises

Natural Born Grendlers

A Memory Play

Water

The Church of Morgan (38)

The Enemy Within (49)

Redemption (51)

Moon Cross (61)

Better Living Through Morganite Part 1 (66)

Better Living Through Morganite Part 2 (68)

Grendlers In the Myst (72)

The Greatest Love Story Never Told

Brave New Pacifica

The Boy Who Would be Terrian King (104)

After the Thaw (109)

Survival of the Fittest (116)

Flower Child (130)

All About EVE

Other people here have lamented the fact that the series ends on a bit of a cliffhanger. Please note that the episode called "The Boy Who Would be Terrian King" gives glimpses of what life will be like for some of the characters 16 years after the time of the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars G889 on DVD at last! May 2, 2005
By BHM
Format:DVD
Long-awaited by fans to come to home video, Earth 2 chronicles the first months of survival for a small party of human colonizers stranded on what seems to be an ideal terraform world. Emerging from a mildly dystopian, bureaucratic, and ecologically disastrous future in which much of humanity has moved onto space stations, this planet - G889, or "Earth 2" - is a veritable Shangri-La. Sabotaged by a manipulative orbiting government, however, the crew is faced with a paranoid landscape in which they cannot trust each other at first, or the initial appearance of G889. Some of these colonists intended to make landfall on the planet, others didn't, and none of them anticipated the trials they would face from the planet, from each other, and from a distant but subtly menacing Earth. They must form a cooperative band to not only survive, but acclimate to this strange planet while trekking to the site of their planned advance colony before a large colony ship arrives.

After a decade in which the only available copies of these 21 episodes were those recorded from the original (and occasional syndication) broadcasts, and after recent petitioning by a dedicated core of fans, Earth 2 finally comes to DVD. Though not inherently creative (many of the show's aliens, incidents and general plot themes could be found throughout science fiction literature and films), Earth 2 did weave together disparate fiction conventions in unique and often charming ways to produce a literal wagon train in the stars. Underlying themes of environmentalism, indigenous rights, female empowerment, and repentance, though, added a substance to what might have otherwise been a bland, repetitive imitation of other science fiction. Although occasionally hokey and even melodramatic (i.e.

This product played up until Disc 2. Side B. The discs are "Made in Mexico" and a red stamp on the cellophane clearly calls this out. Take this as a warning. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Good enough to pass time
There was some good acting in some episodes and a few were really well-written. But overall I considered them mediocre. I'd like to have spent my money on another series.

The reason for leaving to the new plant along with the many other individual stories, and the last how they leave you hanging will they make it or not.

Earth 2 - Possible Previous Version
I bought the Earth 2 series, and two-thirds of the way in to watching it. The writers started to get boring and I wanted my money back. If they had hired better writers and made it more interesting, it might have lasted to the second season. Firefly, now that had very good writers. They kept me... Read more
